| This is Great
If you've never seen this special, I recommend watching it. It can be a very basic concept, an orphan wanting to find a family, but it's more than just that. There's a lot of other characters, both humans and toys, that make different contributions to the story. They put much in this short special, but the end result is pretty good. I'm not sure how else to review this movie than by saying that it's great. Such a simple thing with various characters all wanting something better with their lives. Some parts may not be realistic in the end, but it's hard to worry about that in a lot of different movies and specials. I hope that you can see it because I like it and I don't know why others wouldn't.
