Toy Story was the first feature-length film animated entirely by computer. If this seems to be a sterile, mechanical means of moviemaking, be assured that the film is as chock-full of heart and warmth as any Disney cartoon feature. The star of the proceedings is Woody, a pull-string cowboy toy belonging to a wide-eyed youngster named Andy. Whenever Andy's out of the room, Woody revels in his status as the boy's number one toy.

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
