#244 - Toy Story 2

Breakdown: Toy Story 2 (1999). Written and directed by John Lasseter. Voiced by Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Joan Cusack.

When Woody is stolen by a toy collector, Buzz and his friends vow to rescue him, but Woody must decide between reuniting with his collectable toys or staying with his old friends.

Review: Here's a sure-fire way to make the sequel to your hit movie tank – plague the movie with obvious references to the original and forget about what made your audience love the first film so much. Here's a sure-fire way to make the sequel to your hit movie not tank – do what Toy Story 2 did. The sequel to one of the most highly-regarded animated films in recent history, Toy Story 2 maintains its integrity as far as the loveable characters we all met in the original, the distinct toy-world humor, its story line that feels so personal, and its "positive without feeling forced" message. Gary Busey, what do you think?

Favorite Quote:
Mr. Potato Head: I say we stack ourselves up, push the intercom and pretend we're delivering a pizza.
Hamm: How about a ham sandwich? With fries and a hotdog?
Rex: What about me?
Hamm: Ah, you can be the toy that comes with the meal.
