Toy Story was the first feature-length film animated entirely by computer. If this seems to be a sterile, mechanical means of moviemaking, be assured that the film is as chock-full of heart and warmth as any Disney cartoon feature. The star of the proceedings is Woody, a pull-string cowboy toy belonging to a wide-eyed youngster named Andy. Whenever Andy's out of the room, Woody revels in his status as the boy's number one toy. His supremacy is challenged by a high-tech, space-ranger action figure named Buzz Lightyear, who, unlike Woody and his pals, believes that he is real and not merely a plaything. The rivalry between Woody and Buzz hilariously intensifies during the first half of the film, but when the well-being of Andy's toys is threatened by a nasty next-door neighbor kid named Sid -- whose idea of fun is feeding stuffed dolls to his snarling dog and reconstructing his own toys into hideous mutants -- Woody and Buzz join forces to save the day. Superb though the computer animation may be, what really heightens Toy Story are the voice-over performances by such celebrities as Tom Hanks (as Woody), Tim Allen (as Buzz), and Don Rickles (as an appropriately acerbic Mr. Potato Head). Director John Lasseter earned a special achievement Academy Award, while Randy Newman landed an Oscar nomination for his evocative musical score.

A fantsastic movie for humans and toys of all ages. This movie shows a side of toys that you've never seen before. The toys are not much different from you and I. Filled with comedy and fun that will have you jumping out of your seat and bursting with laughter. Definetly worth the price.
What can I say about Toy Story? I purchased this because the old VCR player had conked out and my son so desperately wanted to watch it again. The old tape was wearing out and I had certainly enjoyed the movie in the theatres and the 20+ times we had viewed it at home. So off we went in search of Toy Story in DVD format. Needless to say it was out there due to the release of the new movie, but everyone had it in a two pack deal. Well we already have Toy Story 2 in DVD. So Barnes & Noble to the rescue! Just as I remembered, this movie is timeless. The characters are wonderful, the story line gripping (yes I said gripping) and there is nothing more enjoyable to a Mom than hearing her children laugh out loud with true, pure enjoyment. A DVD worth including in your family library!
LOVE THIS MOVIE!!!!! Basically the best Pixar movie ever made, next to Finding Nemo. It's the best movie ever!!!!
I really like this movie because ever since I was a little kid I have enjoyed watching it. It is a good kids movie baecuse it is fun for kids to watch, but it also has a few jokes for adults to enjoy. The movie also has good morals that it teaches kids like not to be afraid of change and it teaches forgiveness. This is an awesome movie for kids and adults and I would definately recommend it!!
I love this movie ever sence i was a little kid i have always found this movie interesting. This is a great children movie which is a lot of fun and you can never stop laughing. Woody is a little cowboy toy who runs the house and one day they get a visitor, its Buzz lightyear and he is a space ranger. throughout the movie buzz and woody become close friends. this is one of the greatest children movies i have ever seen and i would recommend this movie to all children that love toys.
A really great film.
I watched this as a kid growing up and still like this movie. Great cartoon and great characters.
It's hard to believe this animated story is 10 years old! It's just a wonderful example that good things stand the test of time. Woody and Buzz, an unlikely pair, are loyal toys to their little boy. Plenty of action and emotion in this DVD for all ages.
I knew it! Toys DO come to life when your not looking! The only other time I saw a toy come to life (on screen that is) was when I saw a Twilight Zone episode... remember Talking Tina anyone? Well maybe this movie wasn't that creepy...well it's not creepy at all...no, I take that back, Sid Phillips is pretty creepy. But before talking about Sid Phillips, let's rewind and give you a glimpse into this delightful, witty and absolutely fabulous computer-animated family film. Sheriff Woody, a cowboy pull-string doll, is Andy's favorite toy. Let's not forget to mention that Tom Hanks voices Woody...how awesome it that?! Other equally awesome toys include Mr. Potato Head (John Rickles), Rex (Wallace Shawn), Slinky Dog (Jim Varney), Hamm (John Ratzenberger), Bo Peep (Annie Potts), Sarge (R. Lee Ermey), and finally Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen)! When Buzz Lightyear, the new toy in town...errr..I mean "in the room" makes his debut, he sets Woody into a blazing jealousy fit. Not only does Andy start playing with Buzz more than Woody, but all the other toys start to admire Buzz... just a bit more than Woody. Woody decides to take the matter into his own plastic hands and tries to get rid of Buzz, actually he just wants Buzz to get stuck ..out of reach behind some furniture. But Woody's plan goes way out of control and now he's on a quest to bring Buzz back home to Andy. They better make it back soon because Andy's moving away in a couple of days! I don't want to spoil it, but Woody and Buzz end up in the hands of Sid Phillips, Andy's sociopathic next-door neighbor who tortures toys for fun! Oh no! How will they ever escape this torture chamber?! Watch and see...
Okay, so there's no point in writing this, but I'm going to anyway. I'm sure everyone in America has seen Toy Story by now. And if you happen to meet someone that hasn't, you might want to stear clear of them because they're probably some ex-convict who broke out of jail or something. I'm 26 and I just dusted Toy Story off and watched it last night. Even though I'm crazy about Pixar movies, I expected it to lull me to sleep since it was my bedtime. Well, truth be told, I couldn't sleep because I was laughing so hard. No one can deny that this movie is flat-out good. But funny is a tag that I never considered until last night. I was literally cracking up every 5 seconds. And there are some scenes where 4 different things, equally as funny, are going on at the same time. The humor is there, but most of it subtle. It's definately up there, comedy-wise with Anchorman and Dumb and Dumber. VERY funny movie, great characters, and spot-on perfect story. Can't wait for Part 3; I already read reviews expressing their amazement.
