We had planned to go see Toy Story 3 yesterday, but at the last minute, decided to go see it at the nearby drive-in.
So we stocked up on candy and headed out. We ended up getting there two hours before the sun went down and the movie started, but it was a good thing because they’d opened the gates early and we were able to get a good parking spot.
The weather was beautiful and Eclipse was playing on the other screen, so it was pretty busy! I’ll admit that I was a little bit wary of a third Toy Story – really Pixar? You can’t be bothered to make up new characters? – but it was really good! It is a little more sinister than Pixar usually are (and OMG, Big Baby is super creepy!), I think, but kids won’t notice – and it will make you cry and want to check up on your childhood toys (hence the post title – I texted my mom at intermission and asked her to go check on my toy stuffed dog), but it’s also very funny and there are some fun new characters. Definitely go see it but bring your tissues!
