If P!xar's intent was to make me feel bad about myself, it failed. If it was to present an entertaining cartoon that carried a sledgehammer message, it was a C+. Visually it was very well done - I missed many of the elements by only watching it one time - but it just came up short.

The magician & rabbit short was a riot.

Saving grace? We saw Wall E, backed with Kung Fu Panda, in a two-screen drive-in with hang-on-the-window speakers (backed with low power FM sound), popcorn, sitting in chairs in front of the car, and all the things we remember about going to drive-ins back in the day. That was a A+.

Chairs in front of the car would've been at least a misdemeanor for the things I remember about drive-ins back in the day!
