What makes Secondhand Lions such fun is the comedy used throughout. Starting with when Walter first arrives at his Uncles’ house to the end of the movie where they manage to crash a plane, upside down, in the side of a barn. When Walter first arrives at the beginning of the movie he quickly realizes that his uncles do not approve of visitors and have no idea how to take care of a child. They even go so far as to warn him that they don’t know anything about kids and if there is something he needs he will have to find it himself or learn to do without, and if they “kick off in the middle of the night” (McCanlies, 2003), he’s on his own. The only other people Walter meets while living with his uncles are the various traveling salesmen that his uncles see as their personal form of entertainment, shooting their shotguns at them to see how quickly they will run away, distant cousins who want Hub and Garth’s money (part of the reason they tell Walter they want to keep him around when he attempts to run away to find him mother is that the other relatives will hate it), and greasers that Hub resoundingly beats up once he breaks out of the hospital after a heart
“The best-laid schemes o’ mice an’ men/ gang aft agley,” (Burns 38). This precise verse from the poem “To a Mouse” inspired John Steinbeck to compose the widely-known novel Of Mice and Men.

The two have an American Dream of owning their own farm, but this is all shattered when Lennie unintentionally murders the boss’ daughter-in-law. In order to protect his closest friend from a most terrible and cruel death sentenced to him by society, George shoots Lennie humanely.
The characters in The Life of Pi are all actually components of the self. At a higher level, the Tiger is Pi’s primal self, the orangutan represents universal love – as demonstrated by a protective mother, the brutal hyena is the malevolent cook who is the shadow, and the timid zebra is a young sailor with a broken leg, which represents youthful innocence and is the first to die. All of these components were crucial to his essence. However, the most important component of Pi’s self is the raft, representing his faith. It is something that he has to construct by himself, in order to be effective.
Most of us know the Disney Pixar movie Finding Dory, the sequel to Finding Nemo. Both generally well known children’s movies about a lost fish trying to find the way back home. What they don’t blatantly put out there for the viewer to see is that the story is referencing to a life with a disability.
