The reason I think it gets to people is because in a sense, we are Andy. When the original Toy Story came out in The Netherlands, I was five years old. As I watch this movie, I am twenty years old and I have moved away to college, just as Andy does in this movie. In a way, this movie makes you miss the innocence of childhood you have somehow lost along the way.
Or maybe that's just me.
While I (along with many other grown-men, apparently) found myself openly weeping at the emotional ending to this film, I nonetheless was slightly disappointed by the meandering nature of the middle third of the film. Too many characters come and go and, for 30 minutes or so, I found myself -- like the film's protagonists -- feeling a bit trapped in the film, waiting for some kind of meaningful escape.
Nonetheless, the film's final act almost makes up for its earlier unnecessary indulgences with the most emotional animated-finale I've ever seen.
Best one of the 3. Not going to lie, I cried.
