Movie Info

Woody (Tom Hanks), a good-hearted cowboy doll who belongs to a young boy named Andy (John Morris), sees his position as Andy's favorite toy jeopardized when his parents buy him a Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen) action figure. Even worse, the arrogant Buzz thinks he's a real spaceman on a mission to return to his home planet. When Andy's family moves to a new house, Woody and Buzz must escape the clutches of maladjusted neighbor Sid Phillips (Erik von Detten) and reunite with their boy.

Critic Reviews for Toy Story

All Critics (90) | Top Critics (28) | Fresh (90)

  • 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).

  • With "instant classic" written all over it, Toy Story, the first full-length feature entirely composed of computer-generated animation, is a visually astounding, wildly inventive winner.

    November 29, 2018 | Full Review…
  • The rivalry between Woody the cowboy and Buzz the astronaut is worked out as a direct parallel to any other family quarrels and it is this sense of oneness that gives the film its kick.

  • 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.

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!
