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 Matinee.....to 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
1. Boxed up for college
2. Packed away for the attic
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!
