I've been telling people for years that there is nothing Pixar can't do. They've been making feature length films for 15 years now, and there hasn't been a stinker in the bunch. Leave it to them to create a third film in a series that not only doesn't suck, but more than lives up to the legacy of the first two. Toy Story 3 is a ton of fun, and surprisingly, emotionally deep.
Andy is heading off for college, and the toys are preparing for the abandonment. A misunderstanding leads them to Sunnyside Daycare, an eden that soon turns out to be a prison. The rest of the film concerns the toys trying to break out of the daycare and get back to Andy. In between, there are some great references to old prison break films and some really cute new characters.
I wasn't surprised that the film was good, but I was surprised by a scene towards the end of the film that justreport this review for TOS violationpletely blew me away (I won't ruin it for you). Pixar has always been known for adding emotional weight to their films, but this scene was so deep, so incredibly heartbreaking, that I couldn't believe I was watching a children's film. It just proves that when you trust your audience, you can make an incredible film.
