Toy Story 3 (2010) G - 4½ Stars

Geeze what a cute movie that seems to end the series while tugging at the strings of your heart. Buz and Woody are back at it in Toy Story 3. This time Andy (John Morris), is all grown up and going away to college. He has to decide what to do with the items in his bedroom before he leaves. Gathering up all his childhood toys, he decides to put them in the attic for safe keeping. But the bags get switched and the toys end up at Sunnyside school where new toys are forced to play with the young children who don't know how to take care of them. Woody leads the gang into a daring escape to find there way back to the safety of the attic. Toy Story is one of those movies where the sequels are as good as the original. I still have some of my very favorite toys from my youth and of course when I look at their tiny smiling faces, I know I could never part with some of them. A great family adventures for the young and old alike. Perfect G rating.

Featuring Woody (Tom Hanks), Buzz (Tim Allen), Jessie (Joan Cusack), Mr. Potato Head (Don Rickles, Rex (Wallace Shawn), Mrs. Potato Head, (Estelle Harris), Hamm (John Ratzenberger), Barbie (Jodi Benson), and new members like Ken (Michael Keaton) and more.
