A few new faces-some plastic, some plush-join the adventure, including iconic swinging bachelor and Barbie's counterpart Ken, a thespian hedgehog named Mr. Pricklepants and a pink,

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

It takes a kind of genius to combine a children's movie for grown-ups and a grown-up's movie for children in one glittering digimated package, yet the folks at Pixar have done it time and again.

Maybe, sadly, there comes a time when the toys of childhood have to be packed away. But, not as long as this movie is playing which, we expect, will be forever.

As much as we may love Woody, Buzz, and the other characters in this toy box, Toy Story 3 shows it's time for Pixar to put away these toys for good.

Forget Butch and Sundance, Bogart and Bacall or Hepburn and Tracy. There is no more engaging double act in the movies than Woody and Buzz and the pair make a triumphant, long-awaited comeback in Toy Story 3.

It's sweet, innocent, intelligent, poignant -- and, most importantly, as wonderfully playful as movies can be.

While the franchise's sentimental mould is inviolable, this sequel has a darker, more satirical edge.

More than 10 years have passed since Toy Story 2 but that lengthy absence has only increased the appetite for a further adventure and allowed the geniuses at Pixar to devise an inventive and satisfying story.

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.
