John Lasseter and his gang of high-tech creators at Pixar create another entertainment for the ages. Like the few great movie sequels, Toy Story 2 comments on why the first one was so wonderful while finding a fresh angle worthy of a new film. The craze of toy collecting becomes the focus here, as we find out Woody (voiced by Tom Hanks) is not only a beloved toy to Andy but also a rare doll from a popular '60s children's show. When a greedy collector takes Woody, Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen) launches a rescue mission with Andy's other toys. To say more would be a crime because this is one of the most creative and smile-inducing films since, well, the first Toy Story.

Although the toys look the same as in the 1994 feature, Pixar shows how much technology has advanced: the human characters look more human, backgrounds are superior, and two action sequences that book-end the film are dazzling. And it's a hoot for kids and adults. The film is packed with spoofs, easily accessible in-jokes, and inspired voice casting (with newcomer Joan Cusack especially a delight as Cowgirl Jessie). But as the Pixar canon of films illustrates, the filmmakers are storytellers first. Woody's heart-tugging predicament can easily be translated into the eternal debate of living a good life versus living forever. Toy Story 2 also achieved something in the U.S. two other outstanding 1999 animated features (The Iron Giant, Princess Mononoke) could not: it became a huge box-office hit. --Doug Thomas --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

It is very rare to find a sequel that is just as enjoyable as its predecessor, but this is one of those rare cases. Since the first film, Buzz and Woody have become the greatest of friends and all in Andy's room has been happy go lucky until the day of the family garage sale. At the garage sale Andy's ends up inadvertantly putting himself up for sale, and even though Andy's mother finds him and tells a prospective buyer that he isn't a sale item, Andy still ends up going home with a collector believing in five finger disounts.
This is a touching story, with some great twists. The animation is flawless as usual and the enjoyment level, and humor are at any all time high.

I liked a lot about this video (didn't see it in the theatre), just about the worst thing in it was the approx. 9 minutes of movie previews and commercials for other videos. Once you get past that the viewer gets to see a little short PIXAR made about two desk lamps and their antics, just about anybody ought to like that. The story itself I won't really get into except to say that the plot while somewhat kiddish is entertaining with something for everyone altough I think some gags are aimed more at adults than children.
The thing I liked most about it is the way everything was rendered so well. Final Fantasy was completely computer generated but the characters had a certain artificial action in their movements, in Toy Story 2 everything moves very well indeed. Woody & friends move more like people than puppets, the lighting is realistic, details are amazing ( I certainly remember seeing Jessie's reflection in a window). If PIXAR can do so well now (see also Monsters, Inc.)what will they be able to achieve in another 5 years.

Toy story 2 fleshes out the charcter of Woody. Woody is kidnapped by a greedy toy collector who wants to put him in a museum with the rest of his round-up gang. Woody finds out he was part of a major children's puppet show (Like Howdy Doody) and that he is a very valuable doll. He meets Jessie who is part of his round-up gang. Jessie wants to go to the museum and hates being in storage.The rest of the round-up gang includes woody's horse Bullseye and the Prospector. Woody still holds loyalty to Andy.
In the meantime Andy's toys launch a daring rescue. They run into Barbie (Tour Guide Barbie). Of course Barbie is portrayed as a complete Airhead. The Round-uP gang convince Woody to join them. Andy is getting older and will out grow his toys. Jessie sings a beautiful song "When she loved me" about her child Emily. Emily outgrew Jessie and ended up giving her to charity. Of course Buzz and the Gang reach Woody.
Woody realizes he cannot stop Andy from growing up and he would not miss it for the world. The prospector tries to stop them. Eventually Woody goes back to Andy with Jessie and Bullseye.
This is a great story about loyalty and frienship. Most children animation shows are very violent. Toy Story 2, as well as the first movie, gives a possitive message to children and are a refreshing change of pace. Toy Story 2 shows that a Child is a toys entire universe and that they are crushed deaply when they are abandon. There are some children that do have an enotional attachment to their toys and do keep them into their adulthood. Some even pass their toys onto thier children. Toy story is a movie that can be enjoyed by both adults and children. The animation was fantastic. I like that "tongue in cheek" reference to Star Wars when Buzz confronted Emperor Zurge.
"You killed my father"
"Wrong, I am your father"
"No!!!"
Will there be a Toy Story 3?

I liked this movie better than the first one. The old gang is still here, with Buzz, Woody, Rex, Hamm, Sliky, and Potato Head, but the new characters introduced in this film are what makes it so good. Potato Head gains a spouse when Mrs. Potato Head arrives, along with her habit of making sure her husband has enough items in his "pouch", including his shoes and "angry eyes". Jessie, Stinky Pete, and Bullseye form Woody's round up gang. Woody meets these new toys after being kidnapped by Al, a toystore owner who wants to add Woody to his collection of rare toys. Woody's pals find out that he's been kidnapped and set off on a mission to bring him back to Andy's bedroom. They encounter some funny mishaps along the way, but in the end, everyone ends up safe and sound.
I have 2 young children ages 3 and 1 and they both adore this film. I also enjoy watching it with them, and I always seem to get a laugh from it. This is a good movie to watch as a family. The kids and the adults will enjoy it.

There is much to like about Toy Story 2. In fact, the only thing I dislike about the movie is its built-in commercial element, which I will discuss later.
The story continues the adventures of Buzz Lightyear, Woody and their friends, all of whom are toys which come to life when people aren't around. It's the perfect child's fantasy. Buzz is an astronaut, and Woody is a cowboy. When the kid they belong to goes off to camp, his mother decides to have a yard sale. Looking in the boy's room, she finds a toy penguin whose 'voice' no longer works. She puts it in the sale, much to the horror of the other toys. Soon, Woody, aided by the family dog, is off to the rescue. He is spied by a ruthless toy store owner who realizes Woody is a highly prized collectible and is worth a great deal of money. The man promptly steals him, and now it is Woody who must be rescued by the other toys.
The story is charming, but the magic is in the animation. This is Disney's third collaboration with Pixar Studios, which mainly uses state of the art computers and skilled technicians to create and animate its characters. In this case, we see the computer at its finest. Animation has been taken to the next level. The colors, the delineation and the attention to detail are all marvels to behold. This marriage of the computer generated and the hand drawn is nearly perfect. I imagine Walt himself would have approved.
The commercial drawback I mentioned is due more to modern marketing than to the movie itself. We are all painfully familiar with promotional tie-ins, all the toy sales that are generated by this type of movie. In this case, everything is almost too perfectly in place for Disney. The items created from the two Toy Story movies are literally toys based on toys.
