Toy Story III

Movie:  Toy Story III
Like/Don't Like:  Loved.  No, really.

Camille has been Without Gall and cooped up in the house since Friday and felt like it was time to get out.  So we picked up some ice cream in honor of Grandma and went to the movies.  Neither of us was particularly excited to see this movie because we're both hard hearted curmudgeons.  Or, you know, we're just not that excited about animated movies.  But it was either that or the A-Team and I'm still not sold on that movie.  Why mess with a classic?

Well, let me tell you, I was wrong to not be excited.  So wrong.  Because this movie was great.  I laughed, I cried, I laughed again, and then again.  The story was fresh and there were enough new characters and a good plot line to keep it interesting the whole way through.  It was suspenseful and heart warming and funny.  And kind of scary in parts.  The kids in the audience didn't really seem scared but there is a droopy eyed baby doll in it that FREAKED ME OUT.  Oh, the nightmares I will have over it.  But that's just me.  It probably won't even faze you when you see it.  Which you should.  Soon.  Because it's that good.  And this coming from a hard hearted curmudgeon.

I was also totally freaked out by the droopy eyed baby, but what freaked me out more than that was the red-eyed cymbal monkey. I have never liked those because I think they are mega creepy. Tim even leaned over and asked if I was as freaked out as he was by it. I'm glad you saw it. It really is good. Especially compared to all the other animated crap that keeps coming out. I cried my eyes out.

I cried like a little girl at that one part (I don't want to give away the ending). It was one of the sweetest animated moments ever. Cute movie.

It was medium for me. I had a four-year old with me who was completely bored, and so that was not fun. However, there were some laugh out loud parts for the adults. I loved the hedgehog!

Finally, I think you should have said that Camilled was "without unmitigated gall". :)
