Wow, all this from a love story involving two robots? Hollywood might have a hidden agenda, but you have be a weak person yourself to fall for all that "thin is in" crap. If you're going to feel bad or insecure about seeing fat people depicted as fools in a movie, then you need help. Either shrug it off or put the fork down. Simple as that. This coming from someone who's overweight.I find it ironic that they have made the characters fat, which is just more of the same old same old from Hollywood, don't be fat and everrything else will fall into place. Yet despite its anti consumption message, various Wall-E toys already hit the shelves, just waiting to be landfill material in a few years or less. That is because Disney and Pixar have become companies who only care about making a buck. The real message the public will take away from it is just lose weight (by trying one of the many worthless weight loss products out there) and I wouldn't be surprized if the diet industry paid for the subtle antifat sentiment to be written in the script. The purpose of almost all commercial media these days, be they news, t.v. or movies is to push some product in a nonobvious way. Sex and the City set a record for product placement.
I am sure the average sheeple will be outraged by my sentiments. I could care less. But they should watch a video called Afluenza where Michael Eisner, former CEO of Disney talks about how it is perfectly acceptable to present violent material to boys because that is what sells. However pure and noble Walt Disney was, Disney know is just another company filled with corporate sharks who will exploit anything and everything for a buck. Yes, the movie might have some sappy message. For propaganda to be effective, people must be unaware of how they are being manipulated. So keep on buying and consuming all those overpriced Wall E toys, just don't be fat and all the world's problems will magically go away with weight loss. Enjoy your virtual animated cool-aid folks.

Maybe with a little hard work and determination all of your fat will go away. Given the idiocy of your post I would rather be a clueless sheeple than some mad cow.
