Movie Review by Zara
February 1st, 2007

Same Toys, New Adventure

The little boy from the first installment is getting older and both of his favorite toys are getting played with a little bit less. This version deals with getting older and what our values become. Some heavy subject material for a kid's flick.

What makes the movie watchable is the fact that we're so familiar with the characters and even though Andy might have abandoned them, we're still right by their side. When a weird toy store order steals Woody from the family's garage sale (where he was only there because he was rescuing another toy) we root for Buzz in finding his buddy. The roles are reversed, and the other toys get a chance to get out of the house as well.

Woody learns that he used to be a famous character on a popular children's TV show and if the toy store owner has his way, will be sold to a Japanese museum where he will be loved by children forever instead of eventually being abandoned by his owner.

This movie is slower and while still good, just not at the caliber of the first movie. Nothing good can last forever. There were plans to make a TOY STORY 3 that ended up getting scrapped with all the legal goings on between Disney and Steve Jobs, so we'll never see what would have happened if Buzz was recalled and sent back to the small Asian country where he was made... all the while followed by his toy friends.

Pity. That one sounded like fun.
