Toy Story 3 (2010) review
Audiences have come to love the characters they met in Pixar’s game-changing 1995 first feature, “Toy Story.” Woody, Buzz, Hamm, Rex — they belong to us as much as they do to their onscreen owner, little Andy.
Even more importantly, though, the folks at Pixar clearly love their characters as well. That love comes through on-screen, and it’s perhaps the main reason why the computer-animation gurus from Emeryville, Calif., boast a flawless record of 10 straight hits.
It’s also the reason why their latest, “Toy Story 3, ” positively soars, yet another victory for the studio and another cinematic gem for movie-goers hungry for unqualified quality in this sub-par summer movie season
As repetitive as it’s starting to sound when discussing Pixar projects, it must be said: “Toy Story 3” is, simply, a masterpiece. Not only is it a rare sequel that lives up to expectations — and the third chapter in what instantly becomes Hollywood’s sturdiest trilogy ever — but it also represents something even rarer: a bit of big-screen cartoonery that parents will enjoy every bit as much as their kids.
You’d think that by now, the shtick — toys that come alive when their owner leaves the room — would be feeling worn around the edges. That’s not the case, however. From the opening moments of “Toy Story 3, ” when the first strains of Randy Newman’s “You’ve Got a Friend in Me” plays, it’s wonderful, heart-happy stuff.
Sure, Woody, Buzz and the gang are only toys, but seeing them on the big screen again evokes a very real emotional response, something hovering between giddiness and aching nostalgia.
This time, little Andy has become big Andy, and he’s leaving for college. Before he goes, he’s asked to sort his stuff into three bags. One will go to the attic. One will go to the curb. One will go to a day-care center.
Some of Andy’s sister’s toys — such as Barbie — are bagged for the day-care center. (Hamm: “I get the Corvette!”) But most of Andy’s gang are headed for the attic, where they figure they’ll at least be able to see Andy every once in while. Maybe they’ll even meet his kids one day.
But after a series of misunderstandings, Andy’s toys are fending for themselves in a preschool populated by drooling, besnotted toddlers. Also there: an insular clan of turf-protecting toys including a deceivingly friendly Teddy bear and a foppish Ken doll with a “Sex and the City”-size wardrobe.
(Incidentally, the new scene-stealing Ken, voiced by Michael Keaton, is also a comedy highlight of “Toy Story 3.” Points also go to the casting of Ned Beatty as the pitch-perfect voice of Lots-o’-Huggin’ Bear, a pink Teddy with a down-home country charm — and a not-so-cuddly dark side.)
Before it’s all over, there are not-too-big surprises as well as the inevitable, heart-pounding third-act chase scene that crops up in all animated movies. Not even Pixar, it seems, can help but succumb to snatches of formula from time to time.
At least this one is wrapped in a fun “Great Escape”-flavored prison-break story, which features nods to “Cool Hand Luke” and “Escape From Alcatraz.”
