What’s it about?
Pixar returns to their first success with Toy Story 3. The movie begins with Andy leaving for college and donating his beloved toys — including Woody (Tom Hanks) and Buzz (Tim Allen) — to a daycare. While the crew meets new friends, including Ken (Michael Keaton), they soon grow to hate their new surroundings and plan an escape. The film was directed by Lee Unkrich from a script co-authored by Little Miss Sunshine scribe Michael Arndt. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi
There was never any doubt in my mind that the third instalment of the major success Toy Story franchise would be anything but spectacular. As always, this movie is entertaining, with superior performances and amazing visual effects and cinematography. But what really makes this one special is the link it has to my childhood, growing up with the Toy Story movies, and now watching the third installment as an adult and enjoying just as much as I did the first two, but in a completely different way.
Toy Story 3 not only offers great family viewing, it appeals to everyone. If you are looking for a third movie in a series that doesn’t suck, go with this one. A timeless story with universal themes that will cross with everyone.
