Trivia

When the toys enter the airport, the announcement "Passenger Leon Krich" can be heard from the P.A., a pun on co-director Lee Unkrich. The subtitles for the above announcement reads "Passenger Twitch, passenger Leon Twitch." See more »

Goofs

When Rex tells Buzz #2 about how to defeat Zurg, Buzz makes 'notes' on his "computer" on his arm, which is really a sticker and therefore shouldn't be making any beeping noises. However, this is allowable within the fantasy toy-biology of the movie. See more »

Quotes

Buzz Lightyear: [landing on Zurg's planet in the Buzz Lightyear Video Game] Buzz Lightyear to mission log: All signs point to this planet as location of Zurg's fortress, but there seems to be no signs of intelligent life anywhere...

Even Better Than The First 'Toy Story'
21 April 2006 | by See all my reviews

Here's yet one more sequel that more than lived up to its original great start. The first Toy Story was outstanding. This is just as good, if not better.

Very fast-paced and very entertaining, this doesn't have a lot of laugh-out-loud parts but is definitely fun to watch with many good lines. What I appreciated was the lack of a nasty villain and any evil overtones, as was the case with the rotten neighborhood kid in the first film.

I also appreciated the fantastic surround sound on the DVD, along with the magnificent colors. Not to be forgotten is a wonderful, tear-jerking song in here, sung by Sarah MacLaclan. It gets to me every time.

When you factor in all the nice characters, music, colors and sounds, this has to be one of the most beloved animated films of the modern era.
