The two films and the 10-minute intermission run just over 3 hours, bit much for the little ones who find sitting still that long agonizing.

The 3D revamp adds an intriguing new dimension to an already wonderful film that's both genuinely engaging and laugh-out-loud funny.

A magnificent film, created with a then unproven playful spirit that merges broad cartoon antics with an endearing eye toward nostalgia -- the heartbreaking years when wonder turns to knowledge and maturation.

An entertaining computer-generated, hyperrealist animation feature (1995) that's also in effect a toy catalog.

Kids are mad about it; it's far from painful for parents; the voice of Mr. Potato Head is Don Rickles. What more could you ask?

As Lion King did before it, Toy Story revived the art of American children's animation, and ushered in a set of smart movies that entertained children and their parents. It's a landmark movie, and doesn't get old with frequent repetition.

The film will probably be more fully appreciated by adults, who'll love the snappy, knowing verbal gags, the vivid, deftly defined characters, and the overall conceptual sophistication.

My 2-year-old runs around yelling, 'Buzz Lightyear to the rescue!' If that's not a testament to the power this movie has to connect to children, I don't know what is.

You wanna know what real "movie magic" looks like? Rent yourself the entire Pixar collection and try not to spend the next eight hours grinning from ear to ear.

Looking Closer
January 15, 2005
A return to the inspiration and genius that powered the old Disney classics. In some ways, its even better than the classics. This film is innovative AND it has a memorable, unpredictable, interesting story.
