Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"So ingenious in concept, design and execution that you could watch it on a postage stamp-sized screen and still be engulfed by its charm."
‑ Derek Adams, Time Out
"The film sports a provocative and appealing story that's every bit the equal of this technical achievement."
‑ Leonard Klady, Variety
"To an entire generation of filmgoers, it just might represent the most significant leap in storytelling that they will ever see..."
‑ Shaun Munro, What Culture
"When Woody perks up in the opening scene, it's not only the toy cowboy who comes alive - we're watching the rebirth of an art form."
‑ Josh Larsen, LarsenOnFilm
"Though some of the animation seems dated compared to later Pixar efforts and not nearly as detailed, what's here is done impeccably well."
‑ James Plath, Movie Metropolis
"The year's most inventive comedy."
‑ Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine
"An entertaining computer-generated, hyperrealist animation feature (1995) that's also in effect a toy catalog."
‑ Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
"Pixar classic is one of the best kids' movies of all time."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"Introduced not one but two indelible characters to the pop culture pantheon: cowboy rag-doll Woody (Tom Hanks) and plastic space ranger Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen). [Blu-ray]"
‑ Peter Canavese, Groucho Reviews
"Perhaps the film is meant as a pre-emptive sop to any resistance to a new medium."
‑ Walter Chaw, Film Freak Central
"A winning animated feature that has something for everyone on the age spectrum."
‑ David Ansen, Newsweek
"As Lion King did before it, Toy Story revived the art of American children's animation, and ushered in a set of smart movies that entertained children and their parents. It's a landmark movie, and doesn't get old with frequent repetition."
‑ Michael Booth, Denver Post
"Apesar de representar um imenso avanço tecnológico, a força do filme reside no carisma de seus personagens e no charme de sua história."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"it is easy to see how virtually everything that is good in animation right now has some small seed in Toy Story"
‑ James Kendrick, Q Network Film Desk
"Time has been kind to it, and future years I imagine will still be kind; a classic is forever."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
