 Toy Story is not only one of the greatest animated movies of all time, but it is also one of the greatest movies of all time, period. The movie revolves around a group of toys that belong to a kid named Andy that is always there to play with them. Even though Andy and the rest of his family don't entirely realize that the toys are alive, when nobody is watching them, the toys move around and manage to talk with one another, giving them lives that are always exciting and action-packed. One of the toys, Woody, is an honest cowboy that belongs to Andy and believes that he is the favorite. However, Woody sees this position as jeopardized when Andy's parents buy Andy a new toy in Buzz Lightyear, a cool action figure with several different functions. To make matters worse, this Buzz Lightyear doesn't understand that he's a toy and believes that he is a real spaceman on a mission to return to his home planet, which means that Buzz Lightyear and Woody never get along from the very start. Even though Buzz and Woody are far from being friends at first, they must put aside their differences when they are forced to escape the clutches of a devious neighbor named Sid Phillips after Andy's family moves to a new house. If they are going to have any chance of reuniting with Andy, they must learn to work with one another and become the friends that they were always meant to be. 

 Toy Story combines together the world of toys and the power of friendship in a fresh manner that will be sure to please. The movie is simply well done throughout, and there's action, intensity, drama and emotion galore. The characters of the movie become meaningful in the audiences' eyes and are just as capable of provoking emotions as are people. The toys are able to produce an entire spectrum's worth of emotions and are able to become some of the most noteworthy animated characters in the history of cinema. 

 Toy Story surprisingly has a fantastic plot that shines on its own. The beginning of the movie brilliantly introduces audiences to the eccentric, incredible world of toys and manages to introduce viewers to Woody and Buzz Lightyear, as well as all of the other toys that belong to Andy. The middle of the movie marvelously progresses the story along and jam-packs the adventure with character development that helps allow each and every character to progress, especially the relationship between Buzz and Woody, who are two of the most important characters in the entire movie, if not the most important. The enticing ending of the movie proves to be both exhilarating, heartwarming and will certainly emotionally touch a few. The movie is at its best when its showing the raw emotion and grit of its toy characters, and these characters are showcased at their very best in the epic conclusion that magnificently wraps up the entire adventure cohesively. 

 Toy Story has the rare ability to be beloved by both critics and viewers alike. Rotten Tomatoes gave the movie a perfect 100%, which is just as impressive as it sounds, and an outstanding 93% of Google users liked the movie, justifying that this movie truly proves to be an outrageously popular hit with a wide variety of audiences. 

 Toy Story is an animated movie that has stood against the test of time and managed to shape the film industry as a whole, as well as the animated industry. This movie is a truly great adventure that is perfect for just about anyone and everyone, including children and adults alike. This story is worth watching in every sense of the word and will triumphantly surpass any and all expectations. For those who have not yet seen it, this movie is a true classic that has a story that absolutely deserves to be seen. It's that good.

"Why would Andy want you? Look at you! You're a Buzz Lightyear! Any other toy would give up his moving parts just to be you. You've got wings, you glow in the dark, you talk, your helmet does that... that whoosh thing. You're a Cool Toy. As a matter of fact, you're too cool. I mean - what chance does a toy like me have against a Buzz Lightyear action figure." - Woody
