Toy Story Movie Review Summary

Actors: Tom Hanks Tim Allen

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Toy Story

This is a story about the secret life of toys, who come alive whenever humans are not around. Woody, a toy cowboy (voiced by Hanks), has long been Andy Davis's favorite toy. When Andy gets a flashy new astronaut called Buzz Lightyear (Allen) for his birthday, Woody feels neglected and jealous. Buzz is a not-very-bright jock type, who really thinks he is a superhero astronaut marooned on an alien planet. When he falls out a window, the other toys accuse Woody of trying to kill him. But there are real threats in store: the mean kid next door tears apart toys and puts them back together in creepy combinations, and when Andy's family decides to move, Woody and Buzz get left at a gas station and have to figure out how to reunite with their friends, which include green plastic soldiers, Tinkertoys, and Etch-a-Sketch, Mr. Potatohead (Rickles), Slinky Dog (Varney), Rex the cowardly Tyrannosaurus (Shawn), and others. This 1995 hit was the first fully computer-generated feature film, and a huge success in every sense of the word.

The review of this Movie prepared by David Loftus

Tim Allen and Tom Hanks play, respectively, Buzz Lightyear and Woody the Cowboy. The two action figures are part of a young boy's toy collection. Allen and Hanks generate a thousand laughs every minute, and the animation is spectacular. Buzz Lightyear even gets a movie based on him!
The review of this Movie prepared by Teddy

The First fully computer animated movie, shows us what happens when toys come to life. Tom Hanks is the voice of Woody, the cowboy in charge of Andy's room. But when new toy Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen) arrives, the rivalry between them begins. Destined to be a classic. Followed by a sequel (Toy Story 2)
