Children will enjoy a new take on the irresistible idea of toys coming to life. Adults will marvel at a witty script and utterly brilliant anthropomorphism.

A good holiday movie for kids and adults. Although the story is easily understood by kids, there are plenty of jokes and innuendos that will sail right over most kids' heads.

Shot through with an exuberant and enviable sense of its own brilliance, Toy Story will continue to impress long after its technical virtuosity has been upstaged.

Although its computer-generated imagery is impressive, the major surprise of this bright foray into a new kind of animation is how much cleverness has been invested in story and dialogue.

Disney's witty, wondrously imaginative, all-computer-generated cartoon is far and away the best of the new holiday movies in town.

It's a nice change of pace to see the studio draw magic from this modern tale about ordinary 20th-century kid Andy and his eager-to-please playthings.

Besides the eye-popping look of the movie, Toy Story offers a good tale told with zest and humor, which is a roundabout way of saying you'll believe those toys are real.

Adult viewers also will have fun -- and not only because of the witty writing or the nostalgic trip back to the toy chests of our past.
