Toy Story 3 (review)

toy.storyGrandma and I took the GC to see Toy Story 3 today.  I found it rather dark and intense for a children’s movie; “Babe” or “Milo and Otis” it ain’t.  The GC was visibly upset during some of the more disturbing scenes.

And the theme of the film is drawn directly from today’s news stories:  after years of faithful service, Woody and Buzz get laid off.  They sign up with an outplacement service which turns out to be a total rip-off: they are even physically assaulted.  When they try to leave their new job, they find out they cannot; probably because they couldn’t repay the service fees due to predatory lending practices.  But they finally get offshored and are happy, at least when the movie ends.
