Disney have improved on Toy Story, which is a huge achievement. It is great for Kids on a Kid level but it has so much to offer to adults too. The original film explored the idea that Toys come to life when their owners are not around and that they exist as mini-guardians to their children. Toy Story 2 obviously continues the theme but also explores new territory. The big question is TS2 is "what happens to a toy when its child owner grows up". The original characters return for more of the same sharp humour and jokes that work on Child and Adult level. When Cowboy Woody is captured by an unscrupulous Toy Collector he learns that he is in fact a valuable Toy and missing piece of a collection. He is flattered and is torn between his new life as a celebrity Toy and his old life as his owner Andys favorite. While all this is going on, Space Ranger Buzz and the gang are mounting a hilarious rescue mission for Woody which is laugh out loud funny. Meanwhile Woody meets Cowgirl Jessie, part of the Toy collection and learns of how she became part of the soon-to-be Museum Collection. Jessie sings "When she loved me" and the story is told in flashback, charting the relationship between Jessie and her beloved owner and how gradually she was outgrown. It really is a heartbreaking couple of minutes and if you arent moved by it, check your pulse. What could have been sentimental and maudlin is beautifully judged and more effecting than an animated film should be! From here the story moves to Woody and Jessie, with the assistance of Bullseye the horse making their escape and returning to Andy and where they feel they belong. This is a perfect film that is a joy from start to finish. A word of warning. Once you have seen this, you will never throw away another Toy, because as I now know, they have feelings too.
