In the movie, Andy's going away to college, and his mother tells him he has to clean out his room. Everything has to go, either to the dump, to the daycare center as a donation, or to college along with him. All mothers must get their ideas from the same place because the same thing happened to me. I can remember all too vividly the day my mother told me that I had to get rid of all my books and magazines or she'd throw them out. I called a friend with more understanding parents, and we loaded all of them into the back of his station wagon. I can still see them through the back window as he drove away.
But enough about me. The toys get donated by accident, and the daycare center looks like a great place, with an apparently friendly bear named Lotso in charge. But things aren't what they seem, and the toys need to escape. This leads to one of the more harrowing (and touching) animated sequences I've ever seen.
The voice acting is great. Is there an Oscar category for voice acting. If there isn't, there should be. The Pixar animation is as amazing as ever, if not even more amazing, and the writing and storytelling are top shelf. In fact, the more animated movies I see, the more I think the writing and storytelling are better than in the live-action films. Some adults can't get into animated movies, and that's okay, but I think they're missing something if they pass up stuff like this.
Bonus: Best use of deus ex machina since Eurpides.
Bonus: Stay through the credits to see Buzz Lightyear and Jessie do the paso doble.
