Our Score
Though this magnificent film will go down in history as the first completely computer-generated animation feature, it is much more than just a technical tour de force. Director John Lasseter has delivered a great adventure story that will not only entertain children but can also be enjoyed as a jokey parable by adults. In a suburban bedroom, Woody (Hanks), an old-fashioned pullstring cowboy, lords it benevolently over Mr Potato Head (Don Rickles), Bo-Peep (Annie Potts) and Rex the Dinosaur (Wallace Shawn) and remains his owner's favourite toy until the arrival of birthday present Buzz Lightyear (Allen), a hi-tech space-ranger. Apart from the brilliant characterisations of Hanks, Allen and the rest of the cast, mention should also be made of Randy Newman's masterly score, which was Oscar-nominated along with his song You've Got a Friend and provides a perfect complement to the action.

Summary

A jealous string-pulled cowboy doll's status as his owner's favourite plaything is threatened by the arrival of a charismatic hi-tech astronaut figure, who refuses to believe he is simply a toy. However, the rivals are forced to work together when they are left stranded in the outside world. Pixar animated adventure, featuring the voices of Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Don Rickles and Jim Varney.
