Movie Info

"Toy Story 3" welcomes Woody, Buzz and the whole gang back to the big screen as Andy prepares to depart for college and his loyal toys find themselves in... daycare! These untamed tots with their sticky little fingers do not play nice, so it's all for one and one for all as plans for the great escape get underway. A few new faces-some plastic, some plush-join the adventure, including iconic swinging bachelor and Barbie's counterpart Ken, a thespian hedgehog named Mr. Pricklepants and a pink, strawberry-scented teddy bear called Lots-o'-Huggin' Bear.

  • When teenaged Andy plops down on the grass to share his old toys with a shy little girl, the film spikes with sadness and layered pleasure -- a concise, deeply wise expression of the ephemeral that feels real and yet utterly transporting.

  • There are many sweet laughs and joking allusions to horror and prison-break movies, but the Pixar gang gets at the most primary fear -- being cast off and no longer of use.

  • I seriously doubt there will be a more hilarious and heartfelt blockbuster all summer.

  • It's still more inventive, clever and laugh-out-loud funny than any other movie out there now.

  • By [Pixar's] high standards this isn't the best, but by anyone else's, it's close to perfection.

  • I tried stuffing paper into my nose and into my mouth and in my ears to stop the flow. It was hopeless. Toy Story 3 is not only a masterpiece but is the most heart-rending film I have ever seen.

    Possibly the greatest animated film ever made, Toy Story 3 does the impossible and manages to be not only the best in it's respective series, but also be an amazing in it's own right -simply put, it will leave you in tears by the end.

    Toy Story 3 in my opinion is by far the best of the trilogy! It is the most emotionally investing out of all the Toy Story installments and is an outstanding entry to the Pixar library!

    When I first watched this nearly a decade ago in the cinema, I believe it was (and still is) the only movie I've ever watched in 3D that I've enjoyed. I was worried that it was that great theatrical experience I'd had that coloured my opinion of Toy Story 3 so positively, and that it wouldn't hold up to any further scutiny. But I gotta say, on re-watch? It absolutely holds up. In my opinion, strong contender for best work Pixar's ever put out.
