Toy Story 2

Everybody and their mother has already seen this film by the time I'm sitting down to write this review, so I won't say much, other than I found it highly enjoyable. Not everybody can make a sequel work, but Pixar clearly has some of the best story people working in American cinema today. Toy Story 2's narrative is airtight and fast-paced, with an off-kilter sense of humor that's just hip enough to endear it to even the more jaded audiences who believe animation should be more like South Park and less like Disney. If anybody has been putting off seeing this film because they missed the first Toy Story, then don't be a boob – you don't need to see the first to enjoy this one.
