The writers who took part in last years strike appear to have had the last laugh judging by Disney's latest offering 'Wall-E'.
The futuristic film contains little dialogue and even less plot in a yet another movie with a tired environmental message that would have been ground-breaking 10 years ago.
The tedious 103 minute plod, which makes Al Gore on a yet another chat-show look entertaining, is another example of the current bandwagon of environmental video-nasties designed to strike terror in to the heart of kids everywhere.
An insider from Pixar revealed how the studio became desperate when the writers strike took hold in 2007 and decided to press-on with the production, hoping that stunning animation and cutesy characters would be enough to hold the project together.
Despite their best efforts, and the inclusion of a few robot noises ripped off from Star Wars, the film fails to deliver. The one high point of the movie is some brief dialogue from that bloke who used to be in Cheers who's been in all of the other Pixar films.
Al Gore was unavailable to comment on the environmental value of the movie, as he is currently flying around in his private jet, telling us how we can all reduce our carbon footprint.
