...and, while not the artistic accomplishment of TS II, it truly dazzled and entertained. The story worked well, and, even as it revisited earlier motifs and plot lines, made not a few memories of its own. For example, the bad guy's really bad, and I even believed at one point that none of the toys would survive (how great a stunnner would that have been!). Most importantly, it really drove home the truth that a boy and his toys are in many ways closer than a boy and his family could ever be, so bring a hanky just in case, gentlemen.
I did miss hearing a poignant Randy Newman song like "When She Loved Me" from II or "I Will Go Sailing No More" from the original, and I won't be surprised if there's some objection to, well, not so much the characterization of Ken as to the fairly cheap laughs the script has at his expense.
My big laughs: Barbie's rights of the governed speech, a nehru jacket, and the harmonica coming from the cell!
Go see it...a worthy denouement to a fine cinematic trilogy!
