Woody (Tom Hanks), Buzz (Tim Allen) and the rest of the toys find themselves dumped in a day-care center after Andy leaves for college.
" Toy Story 3 may not be a masterpiece, but it still had me in tears at the end. "
" When teenaged Andy plops down on the grass to share his old toys with a shy little girl, the film spikes with sadness and layered pleasure -- a concise, deeply wise expression of the ephemeral that feels real and yet utterly transporting. "
" It's sadder and scarier than its predecessors, but it also may be the most important chapter in the tale. "
" A bona fide summer delight loaded with action, humor, nostalgia, a veritable blizzard of pop-culture references and general good vibes. "
" I seriously doubt there will be a more hilarious and heartfelt blockbuster all summer. "
" Toy Story 3 succeeds not because of its glossy and gleaming high-tech pixels, but rather because it is so well-written that you could tell it with low-tech hand puppets and still thrill and reach an audience of children and adults both. "
" The story mixes comedy, drama and action with impressive skill, except this is beyond skill -- this is inspired. "
" A worthy finale to a fantastic franchise. "
" The 'Toy Story' films are deservedly seen as the gold standard for computer-generated animation... "
" Consider the oft-amusing, terribly clever G-rated sequel Toy Story 3 as the brightest student in the class delivering a very fine B paper. "
" As Lotso, Ned Beatty offers the most compelling portrait of avuncular villainy since, well, Ned Beatty in Network, and Michael Keaton's Ken is the quintessence of himbo-ism. "
" 'Toy Story 3': Alternately affecting, hilarious and heartbreaking and the most original prison-escape movie ever made "
" At its best, most moving moments, Toy Story 3 is a story about the pang of a young adult moving away from home and leaving child-like things behind. "
" The best movie of the year so far. "
" The gags are all of a piece, right up to the forlorn yet enchanting finale. "
" It's a sequel. It's in 3-D. It has no kiddie-flick competition. Really, how good does it have to be? Apparently, as good as Pixar can make it. "
" It hits every button from laughter to tears and lifts you up on waves of visual dazzlement. And you don't need to take a kid along to appreciate it... Tag it as one of the year's best. "
" There are many sweet laughs and joking allusions to horror and prison-break movies, but the Pixar gang gets at the most primary fear -- being cast off and no longer of use. "
" I won't tell you what that ending is, but it took my breath away, and I'll bet it takes yours. Do see this lovely film sooner than later. "
" It's still more inventive, clever and laugh-out-loud funny than any other movie out there now. "
