OK but doesn't match Pixar's usual high standard - 77%
2 January 2014 | by (Hampshire, England) – See all my reviews

Another day, another "Toy Story 3" spin-off short story in a similar vein to the amusing "Hawaiian Vacation". But while that outing focused on giving the brilliantly funny Ken more material, this film goes back to the classic 'Buzz-in-peril' plot that we've grown used to. It also isn't as funny or warming as its stablemate but provides an entertaining enough distraction.

During a trip to Poultry Palace, Bonnie (Emily Hahn) takes Buzz (Tim Allen) and Rex along with her. Everything is going smoothly until a much smaller version of Buzz given away in a promotion (Teddy Newton) escapes from his display cabinet and switches places with the real Buzz. While Woody (Tom Hanks) and the rest of the gang try to figure out what's gone wrong, the real Buzz struggles to escape not just the closed branch of Poultry Palace but the therapy group for discarded toys run by Neptuna (Jane Lynch).

Maybe I'm getting used to these shorts now but Pixar are showing signs that there are running out of steam. There are a couple of moments that raise a smile but given how successful Pixar have been in producing broad grins and belly laughs since 1995, high standards should be the norm. There isn't much in the way of performances as most characters have a line or two so they can receive a credit with the exception of Buzz and Mini Buzz who do well enough, I suppose. But personally, I felt the film's biggest problem was that it simply felt like a piece of homework for everyone involved, something that was cobbled together over lunchtimes for a month or so in order to eke the last bit of cash out of the franchise. Basically, there isn't much love behind it and this is why I'm struggling to love it as well.
