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 companion. Joining forces to find their way home, the two rivals set out on an adventure that lands them in the clutches of Sid, a sadistic neighborhood kid who is notorious for dismembering and reassembling "mutant" toys in his bedroom. As "guests" of Sid and his dog, Scud, the two fugitive toys forge a genuine friendship and learn that only through mutual trust and respect do they have any chance of survival.

Critic Reviews for Toy Story

All Critics (89) | Top Critics (28) | Fresh (89)

  • Toy Story takes a number of surprising turns, and though I didn't fall in love with it -- there's a lot of routine clobbering, scrambling, and zooming about -- I remained interested and happy until the end (and children, I think, will adore it).

  • Toy Story remains the humanistic, vital film that created the mold for such classics as Finding Nemo and WALL-E.

    October 11, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Toy Story (1995) is the first completely computer-generated, animated feature film. The visuals were entirely generated from computers, creating a wonderfully-realistic 3-D world with lighting, shading, and textures...

  • This eighty minutes are an endless succession of novelties. [Full Review in Spanish]

  • If you haven't seen the original in some time, perhaps for fear that it won't hold up compared to the later, sleeker releases from Pixar, it's worth rediscovering its pleasures.

Audience Reviews for Toy Story

    A lot darker than I remember. Not necessarily in ways that were inappropriate for the audience but the screenplay does take a lot of narrative risks that mostly pay off (i.e. Buzz Lightyear's delusion regarding his identity that gets shattered, Woody's fear of being replaced that manifests in violence, everything with Sid). Pixar sort of reset to a more earnest approach to story after this one, which often results in great stuff but I'll always have a soft spot for this one.

    Simply one of the best animated movies ever made. Toy Story will live on in the hearts of many forever, including myself.

    Both cleverly written and a technical achievement, Toy Story is a fun adventure that the whole family can enjoy - and one that gets better with age.

    Toy Story is one of my favourite animated films! Even as an adult I can still watch it and be entertained. This film is not only nostalgic but is relatable, emotional and a lot of fun!
