When the little boy Andy and his family are about to move house, he would rather be in his room playing with his toys, especially the cowboy Woody. However his plans start to go awry when Andy has his birthday just before they move and he gets a new toy, the latest and greatest Buzz Lightyear, who unlike the others, doesn’t realise he is just a toy.
Unfortunately Woody and Buzz don’t get on and Woody keeps trying different ways of getting rid of the new “toy on the block” Buzz. Then before they realise what has happened they are both lost, and need to get back to Andy before they get left behind.
The catch is that they will have to make it out of the house of the ruthless toy killer, Andy’s neighbour, Sid Phillips who is determined to send Buzz into space on the biggest firecracker he’s ever managed to get his hands on.
Even after having seen this movie now probably 5 or 6 times, I still just don’t feel it. Look, I mean I get the story, I get the entire premise, I just don’t feel it. I don’t get sucked into the emotional journey of the race to get home to not get left behind.
