Toy Story 2 (1999) Movie Review

After the box office success of the first Toy Story movie, this Pixar classic must have its sequel.

Toy Story 2 is considered by many as one of the few sequels that are better than the original. Its 100% Rotten Tomatoes rating stands tall against other giants.

Plot Overview

Toy Story 2 still follows the story of our main characters, Woody, Buzz Lightyear, and their other toy friends. One day Andy accidentally rips Woody's arm while playing and leaves him. At night, Woody dreamt of Andy leaving him behind. The following day he encounters Wheezy, a broken penguin toy left behind on the shelves for a while. Andy's mother takes Wheezy to a garage sale with other old toys and materials. Woody tries to rescue him, but Al, a greedy toy collector, finds him and steals him from the garage sale. Buzz and the others notice this and decide to rescue Woody from Al.

At Al's apartment, Woody meets three other toys, a cowgirl, a horse, and an old miner, Jessie, Bullseye, and Stinky Pete. Along with Woody, all of them belong to a popular kid's program named Woody's Roundup. Woody discovers they will be sold to a toy museum in Japan and decides not to go because he knows Andy is waiting for him. He gets repaired but is reluctant to go to them because of Andy. He learns that Jessie once had an owner but abandoned her. Woody decides to stay with the gang.

Meanwhile, Buzz and the other toys begin their journey to Al's apartment and rescue Woody.


The second installment of the Toy Story franchise is not only a box-office hit but is beloved by many as one of the best-animated films ever. It premiered on Thanksgiving Day, topped the sales charts, and beat the classic James Bond' The World Is Not Enough. This proves that people adore the Toy Story franchise more than others.

Returning from the first film, Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Don Rickles, and many more still provide the main characters' voices. Joining them are Joan Cusack and Kelsey Grammer.

It's easy to fall in love with Toy Story 2. It's easy-to-understand, the story is heartwarming, some scenes are relatable, and it brings a lot of fun and humor.

A perfect 5 out of 5 stars.
