"No parent who's been roped into leading the troops to a matinee need fear being bored: gags are, Simpsons-like, conceived to tickle several generations at once."
‑ F.X. Feeney, L.A. Weekly
"Pixar's 1995 Toy Story and its superlative 1999 sequel ushered in the supremacy of computer-generated animation."

‑ Ann Hornaday, Baltimore Sun
"Faster, funnier and wilder, with more cunningly contrived computer effects."
‑ Lawrence Toppman, Charlotte Observer

"Pixar, the animation studio that teamed with Disney for both movies, has broken technological ground since the first Toy Story, and TS2 shows off its newest expertise with one smart visual joke after another."
‑ Jami Bernard, New York Daily News

‑ David Sterritt, Christian Science Monitor
"...explores the same themes, but running in place has never seemed as witty, touching and visually engaging as it does here."
‑ Josh Larsen, LarsenOnFilm
"Toy Story 2 is the first mature Pixar film and a high watermark that, if Pixar's surpassed it in the last fifteen years, at least it hasn't often."
