According to Roger Ebert, this movie was suppose to go straight to video but the story was so good. I think they made the right decision because the movie made over 80 million just from Thanksgiving weekend (Weds-Sun).
The story is about Woody being stolen, and the gang of toys had to rescue him. I can’t give anything else anyway sorry. The animation is one of the best I ever seen, along with Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. Speaking of Star Wars, there is quite a few reference in this movie, also a funny Jurassic Park reference as well. The first movie was funny, but this movie was ten times more funnier. Characters that I liked in this one were, of course, Woody and Buzz Light-year, but also Hamm, Rex and Mr. and Mrs. Potato head. The reason why I liked them just as much as the main characters because they had a bigger part in the movie this time. Wayne Knight does the voice for Al from Al’s Toy Barn.
I thought he was good as the evil toy collector and the character was animated very well. I can remember back when I had more than one toy, I had to choose which one to play with more so I guess I can relate to the film and I’m sure most people will to.
This movie turned out great and better than I’d imagined and I think this has to be one of my top 5 best movies of the year. Definitely go see this is, if you saw the first one and like a good funny cartoon like I do.
