Woody the Cowboy, Buzz Lightyear, and the rest of their friends from the toy box return in this computer-animated sequel to the 1995 hit Toy Story. This time around, Andy, the young boy who is the proud owner of most of our cast of characters, is off at summer camp, giving the toys a few weeks off to do as they please. Woody (voice of Tom Hanks) is unaware that in the years since his model went out of production, he's become a rare and valuable collector's item. An avid toy collector (voice of

No parent who's been roped into leading the troops to a matinee need fear being bored: gags are, Simpsons-like, conceived to tickle several generations at once.

Toy 2 is colorful and funny, and the computer-animation from Pixar Animation Studios creates a convincingly detailed environment for the toys.

Pixar, the animation studio that teamed with Disney for both movies, has broken technological ground since the first Toy Story, and TS2 shows off its newest expertise with one smart visual joke after another.

Filmgoers will need to remind themselves that [the characters were] created by a computer -- not exactly a medium we associate with this kind of love, tenderness and care.

It's a tough act to follow, but director John Lasseter and his Pixar crew have done about as well as can be expected with Toy Story 2.

'You can't rush art.' Pixar's bliss in art and play is part and parcel of both the creation and the meaning of Toy Story 2, a celebration of the pure joy of doing. [Blu-ray]

Toy Story 2 is the first mature Pixar film and a high watermark that, if Pixar's surpassed it in the last fifteen years, at least it hasn't often.

The film is a series of gorgeously conceived set pieces and terrific character interaction and, unlike newer films, it's not afraid to get a bit grim.

Audience Reviews for Toy Story 2

The sequel to the big computer animated landmark success does everything right. It keeps the characters that made the original a hit and gives them depth, new adversaries, friends and dilemmas. That's as heart-warming as hilariously funny, with even more great jokes, movie references and racy action sequences than the first film. The writing is perfect, always pushing the right buttons at the right time, switching from emotional to funny scenes without effort. Just try to keep your eyes dry during Jessie's song. It's also amazing what technical progress this film brings to the table, especially compared to its predecessor. As a rare example of a sequel that easily surpasses its original in every aspect, it is still a beauty to watch 13 years later, makes you laugh, cry and stand in awe of the perfection delivered here. Probably the best animated film ever made.

The sequel provides more laughter and satisfaction with the introduction to new characters and new story. Toy Story 2, although may not be topple it's original, still provides for a fantastic flick for the entire family to enjoy. 5/5

Pixar first foray into sequel territory yields great results. Manages to be just as much of a classic as the first, which is not an easy feat for a sequel.

Sequel to Toy Story. Andy goes to summer camp leaving the toys behind. Woody finds a cowgirl friend Jessie. My fave scene is where the toys have to cross the road under the cones.
