In the third installment of the Toy Story franchise, we find Woody (Tom Hanks) and Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen) along with the rest of the gang of toys shoved in a box and long neglected by their owner Andy, who is now preparing to go away to college. As the toys fear for their proverbial lives, Andy chooses to stash the rest of the toys in the attic and bring Woody along for his collegiate debauchery.
After a series of miscues, the toys mistakenly end up in the trash and are eventually stranded at a chaotic daycare which is ruled by a sadistic but sweet looking bear, hilariously voiced by Ned Beatty. Woody decides that he can’t leave his friends, and ventures to the daycare center to rescue everyone and return them to their rightful owner, Andy.
As the toys hatch their great escape from tyranny and the abuse of unruly toddlers, the gang must face off with the bear and his devoted minions and avoid ultimate obliteration at the dreaded junkyard.
On the surface, Toy Story 3 may be another children’s movie, but excels by focusing on life lessons like mortality, the necessity of friendship, and coming to grips with the facts of life you can’t change. The film also manages to pack in tons of laughs along the way. Barbie and Ken (Michael Keaton) have a few hilarious interactions with Keaton’s manic energy bursting through the screen.
A great story of adventure and redemption, Toy Story 3 has something for everyone, young and old alike. Definitely worthy of your 90 minutes!
