This movie did not live up to all the hype and excitement surrounding the movie! We loved the Toy Story movies - this one was good, but not the best and I feel did not live up to the others. It was a bit of a dissapointment - even the kids liked the first two better.
We saw the movie in 3D and felt there was not nearly enough 3D moments - might as well save your money and see it with out the 3D....disappointing!

It's been over a decade since we last spent time with Andy's toys. Woody, Buzz, and the gang still reside in Andy's room, but now they've been relegated to the old toy box. Andy is now 17 and hasn't played with them in years, and the toys, fiending to be played with like drug addicts, hatch pathetic schemes just to get Andy to look their way.
Their existence is about to get much worse; Andy is moving off to college soon. The toys fret about their fate. Will they end up stored in the attic so Andy's future children might play with them, end up being donated to a day care facility, or end up in the back of a garbage truck. When the toys are mistakenly thrown out, they dejectedly submit to fate at Sunnyside Day Care, but as the toys are about to find out, not all is sunny there.
Toy Story 3 is easily the darkest of the series, dealing with fate, mortality, and the inevitability of letting go of the things we love. See it in 3D, so the glasses can hide your tears. Bravo, Pixar.

I JUST CAME BACK from watching a very well done movie. It was a work of art. BUT this movie is NOT for your 3 year old. My son has watched Toy Story 1 and 2 several times on DVD. He has also been to Disney world where he has watched several short movies (this was a year ago). So although this was his first movie outing, he was (I thought) ready for it. Well, the truth is, he would have been ready for it had it been Toy Story 1 and/or 2. Toy Story 3 is a different kind of a 'toy story'. The themes in the movie are a lot DEEPER.... MUCH TOO DEEP for a 3, 4 or even a 5 year old. I'd think 6 year old may start to be ABLE to comprehend some of these DARK themes. The movie was too loud, the characters were too intense, and although the ending was happy and - yes I admit - broke me down in tears.... I think my 3 year old may have been affected a bit by the intensity of it all. Look, it was a VERY well done movie - - and I really enjoyed it. But this is not for for kids < 6yrs age.
