Rating:
G

Toy Story is a groundbreaking family film, featuring the voice talent of Tom Hanks and Tim Allen in a heartwarming story about friendship and the joys of childhood. The film centers around one boy's toy collection who come to life when humans aren't around. Hanks provides the voice of Woody, an old-fashioned cowboy doll who loves nothing more than bringing joy to Andy, his owner. He's smart and responsible, the de facto leader of Andy's band of toys. Life is simple for Woody and his friends until Andy's seventh birthday, when a new action figure, Buzz Lightyear, joins the toy collection. Buzz, voiced by Tim Allen, is unaware he's a toy, thinking he's the heroic astronaut he's based on. When Andy's around, Buzz becomes the star of his games. When Andy's not around, Woody has to deal with Buzz's ridiculous attempts to return to outer space. After a misunderstanding that leaves the two action figures stranded in the human world, they'll have to put aside their differences and work together to make it back to Andy's room in one piece. Toy Story was the first fully computer-animated feature film, and the first collaboration between Pixar and Disney.

    The very good news is that, in addition to stylistic innovation, the film sports a provocative and appealing story that's every bit the equal of this technical achievement.
