Obama Reviews Wall-E!

This is awesome. Pretty amazing that the man who is likely going to be America's next president took time out of his very busy campaign schedule to take his daughter to a movie for her birthday... and which one was it?!? Yep, you guessed it... Wall-E!!!!!!!!!!!!


SAN DIEGO — Add one more name to the list of famous Chicago movie critics.

Barack Obama took his place aside Roger Ebert, Richard Roeper and the late Gene Siskel this weekend when he offered his review of the new Disney animated movie, "WALL-E."

The Democratic presidential contender and Illinois senator, who watched the film Saturday in Chicago with his daughters, gave it a verbal equivalent of four stars. The outing was part of a belated 10th birthday celebration for his older daughter, Malia.

"'WALL-E' was great," he told reporters aboard his campaign plane as he flew to California. "Thumbs up."

The movie features a love-starved, trash-compacting robot, WALL-E, and his quest for an electronic love interest.

"It's terrific. I really enjoyed it. And the girls had a great time," Obama said.

Other movie-goers appeared to agree: "WALL-E" rolled over the competition on its debut weekend at the end of June, taking first place with $63.1 million in box office receipts.

Hilarious and awesome. Pretty sweet that Obama saw all of our work on the big screen!!
