Reviewing A Movie....
...chosen by lmnop stuffing the ballot box popular vote!

 Grandma J was so pleased with all the  movie titles  her blister and blogger friends suggested.  Heck, some of them were from non-blogging friends, but friends just the same.

Grandma J has seen The Proposal and It's Complicated.   Babies isn't  playing anywhere in the area.  Maybe it's too new for Central Texas?   Karate Kid looked cool as did A-Team.....but because Grandma J misses her slinky, and because her friend lmnop named her late precious dog Woody after the  cowboy in Toy Story, and because she posted three times, Grandma J decided to see Toy Story 3.

Then, Grandma J got the following notice on her door.......

So, Grandma J waited for this all important interior examination of her abode......but no one came.

So, Grandma J decided to go to  a Saturday see a children's movie...on it's opening weekend.   Forgetting that movie theatres fill up on Saturdays, she didn't get there early.

It's been ages since Grandma J had to sit in row 2....with her neck arched back, looking almost straight up at the screen.   Lots of babies and little kids crying, and other children running around.  And yes....most kids enjoying the movie.   

Enough whining about logistics.....let's review this movie!

Little Andy is all grown up and getting ready to leave home for college.   His mother wants his room cleaned out so his little sister can take over.    Andy has three options for all his junk loot......

1.  Boxed up for college
2.  Packed away for the attic
3.  Trash!!

The toys....the ones who have lived with Andy all these years where stunned by the announcement.   They were even more saddened when Andy decided to store them all in the attic...except for Woody, who was going off to college with him.

When Woody saw Andy's mom mistakenly take the trash bag full of toys meant for the attic out to the curb, he panicked, and slid down the rain gutter to salvage them.   

The toys took refuge in the back of the family's station wagon, and ended up at the local daycare.   At first they liked the idea of kids playing with them.... 

But these kids are nasty and distructive.

You see, Lotso, the pink overstuffed bear is in charge....and all of Andy's toys had to earn their stripes in the room with all the toddlers who liked to break stuff and write on stuff, and step on stuff........

So Andy's toys rebeled, and asked to move up the chain, but Lotso got nasty.....and Ken wasn't much better.

Baby was the enforcer....and a bit scarey... Grandma J thinks Baby is what made all the kids in the theatre cry.

Andy's toys tried to escape....but ended up at a dead end......overlooking a dumpster.   So, if you want to know how it ends....go see it, you won't be sorry.

Grandma J loved the movie....more than she thought she would!  

 That's why she's giving this movie 5 out of 5 toy chests!

I hope that Big Foot enjoyed the movie as much as you did. Me, I will wait until it is out on DVD. 1 1/2 weeks until I join you in being retired. Wouldn't you know it, I found out Friday I am going to be working my rear end off until the 30th. Looking forward to my big dinner on Thursday though. Actually I am happy I will be so busy I won't be able to think!

: )
We went to see Karate Kid. I did such a good job of trying to convince you that I convinced myself. Kaishon and Shoshi LOVED it. There was a mean man sitting next to us that told the boys they were too loud even though they were barely whispering so that made the experience a little less than satisfying. The movie theater was PACKED to the gills. Holy wow. The man gave us the finger when we were driving home. Kid you not...
But the movie was good. It was just like the first one. Except the kid is 13 : )

...I didn't mean to leave 3 comments...they just wouldn't show I did it again...and it still didn't so I tried to remember what I said adn type it again...hence 3X!

Yes, BIG Foot loved the movie...and I just may splurge and go see it in the theatre!

Happy Sunday, XXOO, lMnop

Five out of five! Even with that creepy Chuckie baby!

I loved the other two, so I'm sure I would love this one, too.

I know 4 grown men who saw it this weekend and wept. It must be sentimental for sure.
I didn't see the other 2, so I'll probably need to do that first.
Glad you enjoyed it.

Well, if Babies comes, then go see it! It was so sweet;)

Saw this over the weekend, too! I will share with you and you alone...I teared up at the end. I am such a sucker!
Now the trilogy is complete and I can go onto Harry Potter movies as I have seen ZERO!
Always love your movie reviews!
