Number 1000!!! Friday, October 28th - Larry H. publishes his one thousandth movie review 1997-2022
Toy Story 2
Released:  November 13, 1999
Its Saturday and the show starts at 4:00 pm so I had to leave the competitive pistol match shortly after I shot my last stage. A man's got to have his priorities straight. I swung by the house to pick up the boy (Eric H.) because he was pretty amped up to see TS2 as well as his old man. I intentionally arrived at AMC five minutes early so we would get a good seat. NOT. The crowd was awesome. We tried sitting in the upper section where the normal folks sit rather than the lower section which is for losers. Tough cookies. We could not find a seat so Eric H. suggested that we sit down front. And he meant front, as in front row. Being the adventurous sort and wanting to please the little tike, I said "sure! as a matter of fact let's just sit smack dab in the middle of the front row... that'll show 'em that they can't push us around.?" I literally sat in the absolute middle of the front row. Man, those screens are big. And wide. And loud. My whiplash is worse!

Disney and Pixar ( Apple's Steve Job) have got this animation thing figured out. Its a great show with wonderful voices from Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Joan Cusack, Don Rickles, George Constanza's mother, and Cheers' Cliff. Music is splendid punctuated by Robert Goulet's "You've Got a Friend in Me." Buz and the other toys must save Woody the Cowboy who is stolen by a character that looks and acts like Newman from "Seinfeld" which is no coincident since Wayne Knight is the villainous voice.

I do not recommend sitting in the front row unless one is very limber and tolerant. I am neither. Therefore, unfortunately, my movie experience was tainted and a meaningful grade can not be rendered. Rock 'n Roll.

Grade NR. Larry H.
