some mild flirting


In a dream sequence, Woody is thrown into a trash can and dragged down by the arms of other discarded toys. And in a video game, Buzzs torso is vaporized, leaving only his smoking legs. Stinky Pete ends up with a pickax in his back in a TV cartoon. He also tries to sabotage Woodys escape plans by cruelly and coldly using his ax to tear Woodys shoulder stitching and thus disable the sheriffs arm.

Buzz destroys enemy robots in an opening scene. A pair of RockEm SockEm Robots get punchy and one gets his "block knocked off." Woody and Jessie scuffle. Two Buzz Lightyears square off in battle, resulting in one being tied up and returned to his packaging. Woody loses that aforementioned arm, though it causes him no pain. Cars wreck trying to avoid road cones. Andy dangles Bo Peep over a toy shark and asks, "How shall she die, shark or death by monkeys?"

In a battle with Buzzs nemesis, Emperor Zurg, and other action sequences, various characters are battered about.


Red's dream was shown with the EXACT point of when he points his middle finger

Some impolite words.


Emporor Zurg and The Prospector may scare some young viewers.

Woody has a nightmare about falling into to dumpster and getting pulled down by toy parts that come to life, this may disturb younger viewers.

A sequence includes a story of how Jessie is abandoned by her owner while a depressing song plays, this may be very emotional for some viewers and several people (including stars Tom Hanks and Tim Allen) have admitted to crying upon watching this scene.

Is definitely toned down from the first with much less name calling and only a few intense scenes. However, this film is darker and more depressing than the first.

Jessie's backstory is quite possibly one of the saddest Disney moments ever.


Like the first, this is suitable AND recommended for ALL ages
