365 Movies: Toy Story 3 Review


Toy Story 3 stars Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Joan Cusack, Don Rickles, Ned Beatty, and Michael Keaton in this 2010 film. The toys are back in the third and final Toy Story film. With their owner Andy(John Morris) heading off to college, the toys are in fear of being thrown out. By mistake though, Andy's Mother(Laurie Metcalf) throws them out, not realizing they are in the trash bag. Barely escaping, the toys end up at a day care, where everything is not what it seems. The toys meet Lotso(Beatty) who seems like a cuddly sweet bear, but he's just the opposite. They also meet Ken(Keaton) a flamboyant and fashionable doll, who instantly falls for Barbie(Jodi Benson). It's adventurous and fun from the very start of the film. As a person, who has basically grown up with the franchise, this is by far, the best one. It's humorous and has so many fantastic moments. Usually, I don't like when a franchise brings in new characters, but I adored the newbies in this. My favorite definitely had to be Ken. He was so funny, and Keaton had absolutely perfect timing! Definitely a fun and enjoyable film!!

I think Ken was the star of the movie. I loved "Barbie has such pretty handwriting! I think Ken wrote that.." lololol
Ugh I seriously LOVED this movie.

This is so interesting. None of my family liked it because they said it was dark and harsh, with none of the light-heartedness or humor of the first two. I haven't seen it yet, so that's just second-hand info! After what they said, I was thinking I could just wait for the DVD. Now, after your review, which is the opposite, I'm thinking I may need to go see it and judge for myself!

I just saw this today and I thought it was really good. It's cool because, like you, I grew up with these movies...so I'm glad this one followed suit in being really awesome!

Just saw TS3 tonight - I thought it was great! It was a bit different, but would not call it 'dark'... still basically has the same witty spirit of the previous ones...
'tortilla potato head' and 'spanish buzz' are probably the two funniest parts... well, and the Ken-Barbie stuff, too...
what is funny for me is they use a LOT of the actual types of toys I grew up with... like the phone 'informant'...yup, had one of those just like that...
and I think the ending was a pretty neat 'wrap' to the series, so hopefully they will not try to keep going with it...

Keep It Gingery!
