Overall A-

It is a toy's worst nightmare to be discarded by his or her owner (as we learned in Toy Story 2). And Woody and Buzz Lightyear (voices of Tom Hanks and Tim Allen) are about to go through this rude awakening when a college-aged Andy heads off to school and the pair, along with the rest of his playthings, are donated to a day care center.

Why is Toy Story 3 rated G? Toy Story 3 is rated G by the MPAA

Violence: There are many perilous scenes in this film while the toy characters are locked in a daycare that is more akin to a prison. Children aggressively play with them and knock them apart. Battered and bruised, they spend the night trying to escape, depicted in dark scenes with scary music. Some characters are frightening looking, including an evil cymbal-clapping monkey and a large baby doll with one broken eye. Later, at a landfill, characters are about to be shredded and then burned, creating a very intense scene. Separation between characters may also be emotionally troubling for young children. An opening sequence features characters trying to save a runaway train headed for a bridge that has been bombed.

Sexual Content: A couple of vague sexual references are heard. A male character is seen without a shirt.

Language: The word "butt" is heard. A character makes a vague scatological remark.

Drugs/Alcohol: Nothing noted.

Other Content: Characters are gambling in one scene.
