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.

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.

TS4 is still flying high on visual pow, pinwheeling fun and soulful feeling. And oh that Forky! As voiced by the incomparable Tony Hale, this plastic spork is an animated character for the ages.

The animation is striking, the jokes amusing and the story sweet, though this being Pixar, the tale is also melancholic enough that the whole thing feels deeper than it is.

Although parting is such sweet sorrow, I hope this is goodbye. It's time to go and the ending offers a graceful, hopeful exit.
