Film review

The weather forecast for the weekend was for rain, rain, more rain and then some torrential rain on top of that. In the end, it was cloudy, damp, a bit soggy underfoot (like an English summer's day, as the children never tire of hearing me describe it), but very far from what had been forecast and certainly nothing to spoil anyone's weekend.

On Saturday morning, though, when we were deciding how to spend the day, the forecast looked like being correct: it was raining, things were definitely wet, and looked like getting wetter, so we decided to go to see the wonderful new Disney/Pixar film Wall-E on Saturday. Is it Pixar's best yet? Well, it really may be. We're all big fans of Toy Story, Monsters Inc and Finding Nemo, but this one definitely raises the bar. And it's great for kids and adults too: funny, profound and moving - it brought an actual tear to Emily's eye at one point. Highly recommended!

The hilarious short film that accompanies Wall-E features a rabbit with the exact same facial expressions as Phoebe.
