  1. It not only pushes the computer-generated film envelope to the very edge, it's every bit as charming, funny and exciting as the original. In fact, I enjoyed it quite a bit more.
  2. Toy Story 2, like its forebear, will stand the test of time.
  3. One of those rare sequels that's even better than the original.

    So funny and smart that holding it up against its predecessor is as pointless as comparing peak episodes of "Seinfeld."
  5. Toy Story had a simpler, stronger story and the advantage of being the first of its kind. But it's quickly apparent that TS2 represents a major step forward in computer-animation artistry.
  6. The kitsch is back in full bloom.
  7. 50
    If you (or your kids) loved Toy Story, you'll like Toy Story 2 as well. Just don't expect any big surprises.

    Just as good as Toy Story, with the best action figure villian... "Zurg".

While arguably not as good as it's predecessor, it contains many funny jokes, a loving plot and a well written and perfectly performed script. It doesn't age (which is nice) and is still one of the best animated films I have ever seen. Not quite as good as Toy Story 2, but is Pixar's 5th best film. Expand

Most sequels milk a successful franchise while providing nothing but the same ol' thing, but I was surprised and moved by how wonderful the storytelling and acting were, but above all else how the folks at Pixar drew together a darker more unhappy element for neglected inanimate objects. I have been delighted to view this more than once. Definite buy for lovers of animated cinema. Expand
