The toys are mistakenly delivered to a day-care center instead of the attic right before Andy leaves for college, and it's up to Woody to convince the other toys that they weren't abandoned and to return home.
In order to power the city, monsters have to scare children so that they scream. However, the children are toxic to the monsters, and after a child gets through, two monsters realize things may not be what they think.
While Andy is away at summer camp Woody has been toynapped by Al McWiggin, a greedy collector and proprietor of "Al's Toy Barn"! In this all-out rescue mission, Buzz and his friends Mr. Potato Head, Slinky Dog, Rex and Hamm springs into action to rescue Woody from winding up as a museum piece. They must find a way to save him before he gets sold in Japan forever and they'll never see him again! Written by

One of the inspirations for this sequel was when John Lasseter was traveling with his wife and kids. When they stepped of their flight into an airport, Lasseter saw a little boy holding a Woody doll and showing it to his dad. Lasseter immediately knew that his characters are not just his but everyone else's. When he sees the movie, Lasseter always thinks of the little boy. See more »
After Andy's Mom realizes that Woody somehow got downstairs and into Al McWhiggin's hands, she takes Woody and puts him in the cash box for safe keeping. After Al steals Woody, we never see Andy's Mom worrying or calling the police to report theft. Nor does she say anything to Andy (as Andy arrives home from cowboy camp all cheerful and eager to see Woody). How did she go through the entire length of the movie not knowing that Woody had been taken/stolen and didn't do anything about it herself. Kinda hard to believe that she didn't notice the wide open cash box and no Woody inside it. See more »

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.
