    Well this is a great kids/adult film ( god I feel like Barry Norman) the only way you will not enjoy this film is if your dead! Woody gets stolen by a toy collector and the rest of the gang go on a rescue mission it`s fun all the way!
    There`s new characters, and plenty of action, the only negative point was the ending, I thought it was a bit lazy and rushed, still that`s was a minor piont.

    I liked Toy story better but there`s not much between them both, but I think Sid and the Pizza planet gave the first one the edge, still Toy Story 2 is a great family film and the best test of that was it kept my bunch of kids glued to a TV for 80 odd minutes, brilliant film buy them both. well done Disney!

    I have to say that I did not think it would have been possible to make a sequel that was better than the original Toy Story… but I was wrong. This film is bigger, better, and downright funnier than the original. I dread to think why Disney even considered not giving this film a cinema release (it was the first Disney sequel not to go straight to video – and rightly so!).

    As with the original, the extras are a little thin on the ground although this time around there are a few more at least. We get a Luxor Jr animated short which is just wonderful, a `Woody`s Round-up` Music Video, a Monsters Inc. preview, outtakes which are just as funny (if not funnier) than the film, and a Coolest Toy Feature which involves Tom Hanks and Tim Allen arguing over who is the coolest toy – absolutely brilliant.

    Altogether, a magical film, although if you are going to buy this film (and you really should), I would go for the Toy Story 3-disc set which has heaps more extras (and the original film!).

    Not as much fun as the first one, the plot is rather silly this time, something about being put in a museum for toys etc, the Buzz lightyear thing has become a bit tired this time...
