Woody has always been confident about his place in the world, and that his priority is taking care of his kid, whether that's Andy or Bonnie. So when Bonnie's beloved new craft-project-turned-toy, Forky, declares himself as "trash" and not a toy, Woody takes it upon himself to show Forky why he should embrace being a toy. But when Bonnie takes the whole gang on her family's road trip excursion, Woody ends up on an unexpected detour that includes a reunion with his long-lost friend Bo Peep. After years of being on her own, Bo's adventurous spirit and life on the road belie her delicate porcelain exterior. As Woody and Bo realize they're worlds apart when it comes to life as a toy, they soon come to find that's the least of their worries.
Animated Adventure Comedy - This is the fourth film in the wildly, widely popular animated
adventure/comedy series, with appeal for adults and kids alike. Tom
Hanks and Tim Allen return as the main
characters Woody and Buzz, while new characters are added and the
character of Bo Peep, absent in the third film, returns here.
Parents of kids of all ages will find this to be safe viewing for all
ages though there are some gags involving some creepy looking dolls
that could disturb very young kids.
Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Good The animated series may have lasted one film too many but at least the latest installment doesn't diminish the power of its predecessors. I'm going to miss Woody, Buzz, and the rest but, although parting is such sweet sorrow, I hope this is goodbye. It's time to go and the ending offers a graceful, hopeful exit.
Roger EbertFull Review Excellent This franchise has demonstrated an impressive ability to beat the odds and reinvent itself, over a span of time long enough for two generations to grow up in. It's a toy store of ideas, with new wonders in every aisle.
NY PostFull Review Above Average Does it tug the heartstrings? Absolutely. Is it funny? The funniest of the quartet, in fact... ...at times feels more like a high-budget episode of television than a sweeping film. The film succeeds more as a collection of zany characters than a particularly well-told story.
Rex ReedFull Review Excellent Toy Story 4 animates our fears and frailties with precision, pathos and such a generosity of both spirit and humor (no doubt, this is the funniest film of the year) that to watch it feels like opening a wondrous gift at an age well after you thought it possible to receive a gift capable of instilling wonder.
Slant MagazineFull Review Good Toy Story sequels have remained true to Woody, even deepening his character by finding new existential crises to throw him into. Toy Story 4, though, finds the series suffering from brand fatigue.
