| Better than the original
I thought the original Toy Story was great. I went to this movie hardly knowing anything about it. Toy Story 2 exceeded my expectations; it's better than the original Toy Story. This movie works on two levels. It's aimed at younger kids, who will love the wackiness of the characters and the situations they find themselves in, though some of the jokes might sail over their heads (but they'll laugh anyway). It's also aimed at adults, who, when I saw it, laughed louder than the kids at some points. The voice work is excellent, especially Tom Hanks and Tim Allen, reprising their roles from the original. The supporting toys (Mr. Potato Head, Slinky Dog, et al.) have much bigger roles this time around.

This movie has everything: Andy's new dog Buster; two dueling Buzz Lightyears; partying Barbie dolls; three 3-eyed aliens from the original; even the Evil Emperor Zurg! I can't emphasize enough how great this movie is and I highly recommend it for kids and adults.

10/10

Trivia

The shot of Andy's Buzz Lightyear climbing up the display only to encounter the new Buzz Lightyear standing tall resembles the one of Woody climbing up Andy's bed only to encounter the original Buzz standing tall in Toy Story (1995).


Quotes

Buzz Lightyear: Buzz Lightyear to mission log: All signs point to this planet as location of Zurg's fortress, but there seems to be no signs of intelligent life anywhere...


Goofs

When Mr. Potato Head tells Rex that "Woody's been shelved", he is seen plugging in his right ear, despite the fact that it has been attached the whole time. It was his left ear which Andy had removed moments before, as well as various other parts.


Crazy Credits

Heimlich and Flik from "A Bug's Life" make a cameo appearance in the credits.


Alternate Versions

In the original 1999 theatrical version, the end credits played over a black background, while the songs "Woody's Roundup" and "You've Got a Friend In Me" played out in full. This version was used for the original 2000 DVD release, and the 2005 release. Approximately one month after the original theatrical release, the original version of the end credits were replaced with the "outtakes" version. This version of the end credits was used for the 2010/2011/2015 Blu-ray/DVD/Blu-ray 3D/Digital HD release. A reformatted version, with the outtakes at the top of the screen instead of on the side, had been used for the original 2000 VHS and DVD release. The outtakes itself had also been included as a special feature on the 2000 DVD release, the 2005 release and the 2010/2011/2015 Blu-ray/DVD/Blu-ray 3D/Digital HD release. For the later TV airings, due to the split-screen credits, they show the outtakes and credits separately. The 2019 UHD release uses the "outtakes" version of the credits, but the clip of Prospector chatting with the Barbies in his box has been removed. It was also cut from the versions available digitally.
