As great as Toy Story is, Toy Story 2 is even better. Everything about it makes the original look "bad" by comparison. Even though the technology since the fist installment had improved greatly, I'm glad that John Lasseter kept the look and feel the same. Had they gone down the road of altering the look because they had the opportunity to "upgrade" it, the film would have suffered for it. Once again, the stellar voice work of both Tom Hanks and Tim Allen as Woody and Buzz Lightyear elevates this one to 'Infinity and Beyond'. Sorry, it couldn't be helped.  I think what I love most about TS2 is expanding the universe and giving the characters the ultimate road trip. Sure, it's only 19 blocks, but to them it's a huge endeavor to save Woody before he is shipped off to Japan to become a permanent fixture in a Museum.

There are so many sight gags and inside jokes, that the movie itself benefits from multiple viewings. My favorite inside jokes obviously would be Jurrasic Park (T-Rex in the sideview mirror) and Empire Strikes Back ("I Am Your Father"!). The writers really went all out and gave us an epic tale. It's just so much bigger and badder. There's a ton of quotable lines here. Props to the writers. Fans of the series and Pixar in general will also pick up on a cameo by Geri as the Toy Repairman.

This is a definite Buy, just for the movie alone. But you owe it to yourself to pick up the Toy Box Set, which comes with both Toy Story and Toy Story 2 along with a 3rd Disc devoted entirely to Bonus supplements.
