Audience Reviews for Toy Story 2
Even better than the first film, this sequel benefits from the fact that we already know and care about the characters, which is used in favor of a story that is much richer and more profound than the previous one, becoming just as well another instant classic.
The sequel to the big computer animated landmark success does everything right. It keeps the characters that made the original a hit and gives them depth, new adversaries, friends and dilemmas. That's as heart-warming as hilariously funny, with even more great jokes, movie references and racy action sequences than the first film. The writing is perfect, always pushing the right buttons at the right time, switching from emotional to funny scenes without effort. Just try to keep your eyes dry during Jessie's song. It's also amazing what technical progress this film brings to the table, especially compared to its predecessor. As a rare example of a sequel that easily surpasses its original in every aspect, it is still a beauty to watch 13 years later, makes you laugh, cry and stand in awe of the perfection delivered here. Probably the best animated film ever made.
The sequel provides more laughter and satisfaction with the introduction to new characters and new story. Toy Story 2, although may not be topple it's original, still provides for a fantastic flick for the entire family to enjoy. 5/5
