Pros: Animation, funny, lighthearted

Cons: None

Toy Story 2 takes off right where Toy Story left off. More adventures for Woody and Buuzz and the rest of the gang. The animation is wonderful and draws you right in. The beauty of this movie is that it appeals to a very wide audience. Children will love it yet the plot, dialogue and humor is sophisticated enough for adults to really enjoy it too. My big complaint about children's movies is that they are almost impossible for adults to enjoy them too, however this is not the case with Toy Story 2.

It's also very entertaining to guess which celebrity voice is doing which character. Tom Hanks reprises his role as the voice of Woody and Tim Allen with the voice of Buzz Lightyear. The voice of Woody's girlfriend is by Joan Cusak who does a simply wonderful job.

All around enjoyable, timeless movie.

I don't think Toy Story 2 was as great as its predecessor, but I still think it is a wonderful movie and one of the best sequels ever made. This is sadder than the first one, but that doesn't mean that it doesn't have all the heart, character, and humour that the first one had. The movie also introduced some great new characters like Jessie, Bullseye, and the Happy Prospector. It also keeps the standard of stellar animation, voice acting, and memorable characters as the first film.   …

Succeeds in Typical Pixar Fashion
   Nothing like the responsibility of trying to sequel what is commonly acknowledged as the motion picture that invented the computer animated film genre and yet this is exactly what Pixar was staring at when they set out to build Toy Story 2.      And to listen to John Lasseter, Ash Brannon, Lee Unkrich or any of the other Pixar writers and directors charged with the task of making the film a reality and it’s clear that rather than worry about the implied …

Everyone knows about the runaway success of the first Toy Story film in 1995.  When it first dropped down it instantly became one of Disney/Pixars best known classics.  When the idea of a sequel emerged, Disney was pretty sure it was going to be a straight to video affair.  This was in part because it was always how Disney had done their sequels and also because the track record of Disney sequels wasn't exactly something to be proud of.  Upon hearing this Tom Hanks and Tim …

Here is a sequel that equals its predecessor in sheer enjoyment. Wonderful new characters make the story fresh. Loved all the references to Star Wars. I will be one of the first to purchase the video when it comes out. Hope that this is only the first in a long line of sequels or possible television series.

Pros: Better than the first     Cons: none     The Bottom Line: make it a family movie night and definitely veiw this movie for yourself.     Plot Details: This opinion reveals minor details about the movie's plot. That would explain how it went when we took our daughter to see this film. It was so funny the entire theatre, young and old were laughing through almost the entire film.      The first Toy Story I found to …

About this movie

Wiki

In this dazzling sequel to the 1995 blockbuster, Andy heads off to summer camp, leaving the toys behind to fend for themselves. In much the same way Buzz discovered he is a mass-produced product in the first installment, Woody discovers that he is a valuable collectible spawned by a popular 1950s kiddie-puppet TV show, "Woody's Roundup Gang," when he is kidnapped by an evil toy collector, Al McWhiggin. Through Al, who plans to sell him to a Japanese toy museum, Woody is reunited with the toy versions of his TV cohorts--plucky cowgirl Jessie (Cusack), prospector Stinky Pete (Grammer), and trusty horse Bullseye. Woody must choose between seeing Andy grow up and forsake him and living a sterile but eternal life behind glass being admired--but not played with. Meanwhile, the rest of the original toy troupe undergoes a thrilling crosstown adventure to locate their kidnapped friend and restore him his rightful owner. Extremely entertaining, surprisingly touching, endlessly thrilling eye candy for anyone of any...
