Movie Info

Woody, a traditional pull-string talking cowboy, has long enjoyed a place of honor as the favorite among six-year-old Andy's menagerie of toys. Quick to calm their anxieties about being replaced by newer arrivals, Woody finds his own confidence shaken, and his status as top toy in jeopardy, upon the arrival of Buzz Lightyear, simply the coolest space action figure ever made. Woody plots to get rid of Buzz, but things backfire and he finds himself lost in the outside world with Buzz as his only … More

So ingenious in concept, design and execution that you could watch it on a postage stamp-sized screen and still be engulfed by its charm.

The film sports a provocative and appealing story that's every bit the equal of this technical achievement.

An entertaining computer-generated, hyperrealist animation feature (1995) that's also in effect a toy catalog.

As Lion King did before it, Toy Story revived the art of American children's animation, and ushered in a set of smart movies that entertained children and their parents. It's a landmark movie, and doesn't get old with frequent repetition.

Apesar de representar um imenso avanço tecnológico, a força do filme reside no carisma de seus personagens e no charme de sua história.

When Woody perks up in the opening scene, it's not only the toy cowboy who comes alive - we're watching the rebirth of an art form.

Introduced not one but two indelible characters to the pop culture pantheon: cowboy rag-doll Woody (Tom Hanks) and plastic space ranger Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen). [Blu-ray]

it is easy to see how virtually everything that is good in animation right now has some small seed in Toy Story

Q Network Film Desk

Though some of the animation seems dated compared to later Pixar efforts and not nearly as detailed, what's here is done impeccably well.

Perhaps the film is meant as a pre-emptive sop to any resistance to a new medium.

Turns out the real magic is nothing to do with technology: it's in the words, the voices, the story. But then, a child could have told you that.

Its lightness of touch has not diminished, nor has its near-miraculous kidult-fusion humour.

The 3-D viewing doesn't make much difference...but it is a joy to see these superb films back on the big screen, even after dozens of DVD viewings.

It doesn't enhance the experience, because the film's timeless appeal is down to great characters and wonderful storytelling; a classic that doesn't need goggles or gimmicks.

As such Toy Story in 3D is never overwhelming. Nor is it tedious, as many recent 3D vehicles have come too close for comfort to.

The fresh look serves the story and is never allowed to overwhelm it, leaving a beautifully judged yarn to unwind and enchant a new intake of young cinemagoers.

There's no denying 3D adds extra texture to Pixar's seminal 1995 buddy movie, emphasising Buzz and Woody's toy's-eye- view of the world.

If anything, it feels even fresher, funnier and more thrilling in today's landscape of over-studied demographically correct moviemaking.

If you haven't seen it for a while, you may have forgotten just how fantastic the snappy dialogue, visual gags and genuinely heartfelt story is.

Audience Reviews for Toy Story


A classic.

Arguably the biggest film of my childhood. Even today, I return to the film and recite certain lines because they are are so iconic or humorous. The voice cast of Tom Hanks and Tim Allen fit the characters of Woody and Buzz so perfectly, this film should be seen as a major highlight in their careers. From Pizza Planet, to Sid's House and the race for the moving truck, this film features plenty of memorable scenes and locations. Randy Newman's song "You've Got A Friend In Me" is undeniably one of the best songs to be featured in a Pixar film, shame it didn't win the Oscar for 'Best Original Song' that it deserved. Overall, this is my most favored Pixar film of all time.
PS: Steve Jobs personally funded Pixar to make this film possible. So those who grew up with this film, remember this is another reason on how Jobs changed the world.

Pixar's first major smash hit and one of the first entirely computer animated films may not have aged well, considering the huge steps CGI characters have taken since 1995. Its biggest assets, a huge beating heart and a great sense of humor, still work so many years later and let you forget about the sometimes flat textures. The story, the characters and the jokes are what draws you into the story and soon after you forget you're actually watching an adventure about living toys. The great voice acting helps too, of course. The result, a glorious collection of exciting and fun action scenes, is so perfect, you sometimes feel the urge to clap applause in responds to the events on the screen. A classic.

"Toy Story" has set the standard for animated films and has yet to be surpassed. So many iconic scenes and memorable characters. It's a classic and deserves to be. Surprising that the first feature-lengh animated film continues to be the best.
