"A Gift For All Ages."
-New York Post
Celebrate the 10th anniversary of the movie that changed the face of entertainment. Toy Story, the first full-length computer animated feature film, is "a wonder to behold." -People
Experience a hilarious fantasy about the lives toys lead when they're left alone. Woody (Tom Hanks), an old-fashioned cowboy doll, is Andy's favorite. But when Andy gets Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen) for his birthday, the flashy new space hero takes Andy's room by storm! Their rivalry leaves them lost with a toy's worst nightmare - Sid, the toy-torturing boy next door. Woody and Buzz must work together to escape, realizing along the way that they've got a friend...in each other!
Now, in a magnificent special edition, Toy Story shines even brighter. With an all-new enhanced picture and a spectacular home theater mix as well as exclusive bonus features, including deleted scenes and a retrospective special with Director John Lasseter, this modern classic is one you'll enjoy to infinity and beyond.
This is, of course, the original Pixar feature film, the one that revolutionized children's animation. And while it is, indeed, an inventive, clever, and entertaining ride with a stellar voice cast, it just doesn't quite grab me the way some of Pixar's later offerings do. For one thing, certain parts of the animation aren't quite right - in particular, Sid's dog has a very odd and unnatural look to him.
Still, it's a fun and funny movie that all ages should enjoy.
Rated G (MPAA)
