Movie Info

Woody (voice of Tom Hanks) has always been confident about his place in the world, and that his priority is taking care of his kid, whether that's Andy or Bonnie. So when Bonnie's beloved new craft-project-turned-toy, Forky (voice of Tony Hale), declares himself as "trash" and not a toy, Woody takes it upon himself to show Forky why he should embrace being a toy. But when Bonnie takes the whole gang on her family's road trip excursion, Woody ends up on an unexpected detour that includes a reunion with his long-lost friend Bo Peep (voice of Annie Potts). After years of being on her own, Bo's adventurous spirit and life on the road belie her delicate porcelain exterior. As Woody and Bo realize they're worlds apart when it comes to life as a toy, they soon come to find that's the least of their worries.

  • Toy Story 4 is so good it's criminal. The legislation it flouts is the law of diminishing returns which governs movies with numbers after their names.

  • The latest installment, "Toy Story 4," is perhaps the bleakest (and most beautiful) of them all.

    Jun 22, 2019 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…
  • It doesn't put you through the emotional wringer the way its predecessor did, but it's consistently inventive, funny, witty, and heartfelt. In other words, it's a lot better than it has any right to be. It's more than good enough to justify its existence.

  • Finding your purpose, embracing your destiny and accepting your mortality are mature themes for a children's film, but "Toy Story 4" handles them nimbly while still managing to be a colorful family adventure.

Audience Reviews for Toy Story 4

    I very much enjoyed Toy Story 4. I thought it was good, and I think it doesn't at all "undo" the perfect ending that the third entry gave us, which was a legitimate fear some people had. What I will say however, is that I don't understand just how much most people seem to have loved it. I have seen multiple people say it's the best of the four, and I more think it's the... worst. That's not a knock! This is a seriously good series (and also I think it might actually be either better than or maybe as good Toy Story 2). But I am not quite feeling the overwhelming positivity that it has garnered from a lot of my peers.

    Woody and the gang embark on one last adventure in Toy Story 4. While on a road trip with her parents Bonnie losses her new favorite toy that she made in preschool and Woody attempts to get him back, and along the way he reunites with Bo Peep, who's joined a traveling carnival. Most of the original cast returns along with several new additions, including Christina Hendricks, Tony Hale, and Keanu Reeves. Once again the series takes on some very poignant themes, but it isn't quite as nuanced as in previous films and comes off as kind of talky and heavy handed. The lack of a strong villain is also problematic. However, the comedy is incredibly well-done and delivers a lot of laughs. But it also has a lot of heart. Though it's not as strong as some of the other entries in the franchise, Toy Story 4 is a fun and heartwarming family film.

    It was funny, touching and charming and I enjoyed it. That said, I still felt it wasn't needed to add a fourth chapter. I have a feeling this is really the end and if so it ended on the right note. DIsney has does and will always know how to pull your heart strings.

    I was blown away by Toy Story 4 - amazed by the creativity and depth of the storytelling, and the brilliance of the animation. It's simply beautiful and must not be missed. I can't think of a better conclusion to Woody's story arc, which is deeply moving. It's funny yet scary, childlike yet philosophical, light yet deep -- all at the same time. You can't help but emphathize with the existential crisis of a toy - one day beloved, next day trash and start questioning your purpose of life! Brilliantly told and executed, thanks also to having a great cast of voice actors, including Tom Hanks. Seriously, WOW! Please, Disney. Start working on Toy Story 5. And make sure it's the same scriptwriters. Love them to bits.
