SEX/NUDITY 1 - A few kisses on the cheek. Some "male" toys admire lots of dancing Barbies in swimsuits.

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - Nearly all played for laughs: In a sequence that turns out to be a video game, we see a character exchanging laser beam fire with an army of robots; some robot parts fly to the ground after an explosion and a character gets its torso shot off. A toy flies into a door, a toy is tied onto cardboard and put in a box, a toy is used as a battering ram, a toy tackles another and pulls its arm behind its back, a toy tries to hit another with a pickaxe, a couple of toys scuffle, two toys shoot at each and two boxing toys punch each other. A dog picks up a toy with its mouth, shakes it around, throws it to the ground, then licks its face. A toy's arm rips off and is stitched back on; in a later scene, a toy uses a pickaxe to rip out some of the seams again (and again, the arm is stitched together). A couple of punches and scuffles; several falls and pratfalls. In a dream sequence, a boy throws a toy into a trash can filled with broken toy parts; when the toy tries to climb out, an arm pulls it back down. Twice, a toy grabs onto a moving vehicle and once the toy falls off and rolls on the ground, uninjured. Toys cross a busy street while carrying orange cones over themselves; many cars swerve and screech to a halt to avoid them (some are nearly smashed by truck) and two cars crash into each other. Reckless driving; in one scene, the toys drive a car on a busy street. A man burps on a toy that is standing next to his mouth. Some yelling.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Being forgotten by loved ones, collecting toys, greed, friendship.

MESSAGE - Toys are meant to be played with and loved, not collected and sold.

(Note: An extended preview of an upcoming film shown before Toy Story 2 contains a scene that could frighten children: a snarling dinosaur jumps out of a forest, chases after several other dinosaurs and steps on some dinosaur eggs.)

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
