An entertaining movie that mixes animation and comedy is Toy Story 2. In this second toy story, a young boy named Andy, goes to camp leaving his toys to take on a life of their own. Once Andy is gone, his mother begins searching for old toys to put in her yard sale and she picks up a little penguin with a broken squeaker. A toy cowboy named Woody, with the voice of Tom Hanks, sneaks outside and tries to rescue the penguin when a toy collector named Big Al spots Woody. Big Al excitedly offers to buy Woody and when Andy’s mom says, “No, Woody is not for sale.” he steals him. Woody is taken to a toyshop, painted and fixed up to look like new. He is then added to a Woody Round-Up set to be sold as a collector’s item. Back at Andy’s house, a toy astronaut named Buzz Lightyear, with the voice of Tim Allen, sees Big Al steal Woody and asks the other toys to volunteer to rescue Woody. They manage to make it down the steps, out the front door and down the street with out any mishaps. Now the hard part: how do the toys cross the street without being flattened like a bunch of Pokemon cards? They put orange caution cones over their bodies and run for their lives. Maybe I should try that; I could put an orange cone over my head when I want to cross the street since cars won’t stop for my white cane. They manage to cross the street, find the toyshop and locate Woody. But does Woody want to come home? With a name like Woody, I think I would stay away, too. This is a great film for children and adults because it’s an amusing story full of fun and adventure. There is even a beautiful song that a little girl sings about her love for one of her toys. I give this wonderful movie an A rating.

Although I am blind, I can appreciate a good movie as well as sighted individuals.
I rely more on a good story line than special effects.
