Goofs

The cover of Life Magazine has a headline which reads "Sputnik - First Photos Revealed" and is dated 12 January 1957. Sputnik wasn't launched until 4 October 1957. This is simply a bit of fun poked at the movie industry in general where photos from the set are revealed a long time before the movie actually hits theaters and not a reference to the launch date of the Sputnik. The date itself is a reference to director John Lasseter's birthday. See more »

Better than the original
24 November 1999 | by (New Hope, MN) – See all my reviews

I thought the original Toy Story was great. I went to this movie hardly knowing anything about it. Toy Story 2 exceeded my expectations; it's better than the original Toy Story. This movie works on two levels. It's aimed at younger kids, who will love the wackiness of the characters and the situations they find themselves in, though some of the jokes might sail over their heads (but they'll laugh anyway). It's also aimed at adults, who, when I saw it, laughed louder than the kids at some points. The voice work is excellent, especially Tom Hanks and Tim Allen, reprising their roles from the original. The supporting toys (Mr. Potato Head, Slinky Dog, et al.) have much bigger roles this time around.

This movie has everything: Andy's new dog Buster; two dueling Buzz Lightyears; partying Barbie dolls; three 3-eyed aliens from the original; even the Evil Emperor Zurg! I can't emphasize enough how great this movie is and I highly recommend it for kids and adults.

10/10
