Toy Story

This was a truly amazing film. My two-year old nephew went to see the film and he was utterly mesmerized. It's not very easy to find a movie that keeps a two-year old's interest all the way through. From that news alone, I thought this film must be spectacular. Like Who Framed Roger Rabbitt, it lives up to the expectations of the audience. The story is about what toys do when humans aren't around. The two lead characters, an old pull-string cowboy named Woody (voice of Tom Hanks) and a G.I. Joe type of space-hero, Buzz Lightyear (voice of Home Improvement's Tim Allen) are vying for control over the playroom. Woody is jealous, because the other toys think Buzz is hot stuff, while Buzz is such an egomaniac, he doesn't even know he's a toy.

Besides the excellent computer animation, the characters are well voiced by the cast. Other voices include Wallace Shawn (My Dinner With Andre) as a timid dinosaur, Annie Poitts as Little Bo Peep and Cheers' John Ratzenberger as a piggy bank. The best performance comes from comedian Don Rickles in a role he was born to play- Mr. Potato Head! The film is an enjoyable experience for both kids and adults. Kids can be as mesmerized by the film as was my nephew. Adults can just sit back and remember their childhoods and the toys with which they played or pick up on some of the more adult-tuned wit contained in this movie.
