Movie Info

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

When teenaged Andy plops down on the grass to share his old toys with a shy little girl, the film spikes with sadness and layered pleasure -- a concise, deeply wise expression of the ephemeral that feels real and yet utterly transporting.

There are many sweet laughs and joking allusions to horror and prison-break movies, but the Pixar gang gets at the most primary fear -- being cast off and no longer of use.

It's still more inventive, clever and laugh-out-loud funny than any other movie out there now.

The 'Toy Story' films are deservedly seen as the gold standard for computer-generated animation...

It's sadder and scarier than its predecessors, but it also may be the most important chapter in the tale.

Genuinely moving and a beautiful farewell to a beloved series, Toy Story 3 is the must-see movie of the summer.

Consider it one last farewell to the innocence of youth and bid adieu to this Story.

Sit back, put on your glasses, and enjoy: It's summer, and Pixar has made you a treat.

While the concept has turned darker, Toy Story 3 carries it off brilliantly.

August 4, 2013 Full Review Source:

The whole project is so masterfully conceived and executed that you either go along for the ride or sit in stunned appreciation for how singularly Pixar has maintained control over the creative quality of its output.

From 1995's Toy Story to now, we know these are not mere toys. Woody, Buzz and the rest have inner lives of their own, demonstrating unconditional loyalty, love, camaraderie and tearjerking nostalgia.

This one wraps up the series perfectly and lets us all move on.

... this is [Pixar's] prison film, and they load it with suspense, clever references, invention and action.

While this is a good sequel, I wish it had had more of the emotion that had made the first two films so memorable.

Toy Story 3 is probably the best of the series ...

June 30, 2011 Full Review Source: The Ooh Tray
The Ooh Tray

Another worthy entry in a much-heralded series that amounts to a prison break story as exciting in its own way as Steve McQueen's "The Great Escape".

May 25, 2011 Full Review Source:

"Toy Story 3" is a bit on the safe side, hemmed in by its concept from offering the imagination that makes the best Pixar has to offer so good ... but the filmmakers still understand real heart.

March 21, 2011 Full Review Source:

I can understand the creators not wanting to sugarcoat life merely because the colors are brighter and voices chirpier, but why is Toy Story 3 so intent on being such a manipulative downer?

Woody, Buzz & Co. triumph again but lose a bit of magic.

December 25, 2010 Full Review Source:

Pixar have once again reminded me that there is a way to create a film that not only appeals to just about everyone, but also prove that three-quels need not suck.

November 15, 2010 Full Review Source: Movie Views

A story with timeless, universal themes: family, coming of age (and leaving behind childish things), and the inevitable time when, past our prime, we will all face potential social obsolence. [Blu-ray]

Audience Reviews for Toy Story 3

And so Pixar just goes and does it again, as if it's the easiest thing to do: They're taking characters that haven't been used in 10 years and throw them into this new adventure as if no time passed. The film blends perfectly into its two predecessors. Of course, the animation has taken huge steps in the meantime and is absolutely flawless and stunningly beautiful. Starting with a bang of a beautifully shot action sequence the film reminds reminds us of all the different characters from the gang of toys.
And that's what they are, characters. Although there are too many of them to give them all a lot of screen time it just takes seconds for us to feel for them. When Woody and his friends hold each other's hands later while facing their possible demise, we forget that we're looking at animated toys, we worry about them as if they were real. That's certainly the biggest asset of the film, taking its characters seriously while having fun with them. The story is a tad more serious than before, delivering one of the greatest prison breaks of recent movie history, there's great voice acting and the story develops quite a lot of speed in the last third with more spectacular and colorful sceneries than the two first films. Just try not to be deeply touched by the last couple of minutes. The result is en par with its fantastic predecessors: funny, sweet, touching, deeply entertaining. Another triumph for Pixar.

It follows a very familiar Pixar formula, but the studio's heart and soul is poured into every moment of this beautiful and hilarious movie, and the ending accomplishes incredible emotional feats.
