I guess we really have become this vacuous

'Wall-E' Trailer Makes Woman Cry, Every Time

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) ― No matter where she is, every time Courtney Mault sees the preview to the new Pixar movie, "Wall-E", her eyes tear up.

"I don't know. I like robots," she said, "Pixar is really good at making characters adorable. They made people love rats with Ratatouille."

The movie is about a robot stuck alone picking up trash on Earth for 700 years after humans leave. Mault said she's never sad when she cries, but rather more emotional when the robot says his name for the first time.

Mault first saw the movie trailer nine months ago with her boyfriend. At the time, tears streamed down her face after the 2-minute preview.

"I think it's the fact that there's this little robot, he's all alone. He's developed this sense of curiosity and there's something about that's so touching and heartbreaking," she said.
