QUICK TAKE:
Computer-Animated Comedy: A group of toys that come to life whenever humans aren't around try to find their human girl's favorite new toy that's flown the coop, all while dealing with a doll and her ventriloquist dummy henchmen who want something from the toys' leader.
PLOT:
Having been given to another child by their previous owner who's grown up and gone off to college, various sentient toys that come to life whenever humans aren't around are still adjusting to young Bonnie (voice of MADELEINE McGRAW). She's about to start kindergarten and thus cowboy toy Woody (voice of TOM HANKS), despite no longer being the favorite toy of the bunch, thinks someone should go along and comfort her.

Accordingly, he sneaks off in her backpack and watches as she creates a new toy, Forky (voice of TONY HALE), out of a spork and various odds and ends. Being new to the world, Forky doesn't know what's going on but senses his place is in the trash and thus repeatedly tries to get into trash cans and such.

When Bonnie's parents head off on an RV road trip, Bonnie takes along all of her toys, but when Forky flies the coop out the window, Woody jumps out after him. They then hit the road for the RV camp that happens to be next to a small town. There, something in an antique story reminds Woody of his former toy friend, Bo Peep (voice of ANNIE POTTS), and he and Forky enter the place only to encounter baby doll Gabby Gabby (voice of CHRISTINA HENDRICKS) and her small contingent of huge ventriloquist dummy goons.

Seeing that Woody has a fully functional pull-string voice box, Gabby Gabby decides she wants that to replace her defective one, all to fix her defect and thus have the shop owner's granddaughter take her as her toy. Woody manages to escape, but with Forky held hostage, he and his array of friends -- that include space ranger toy Buzz Lightyear (voice of TIM ALLEN) and Jessie the cowgirl (voice of JOAN CUSACK) among others -- set out on a rescue mission.

They end up running into Bo and her friend Giggle McDimples (voice of ALLY MAKI) who offer to help, as does Canadian stuntman figure Duke Caboom (voice of KEANU REEVES) as well as plush carnival toys Ducky (voice of KEEGAN-MICHAEL KEY) and Bunny (voice of JORDAN PEELE). But with Bonnie's parents getting ready to leave the RV park to continue on their travels, the various toys race against time to rescue Forky, all while contending with Gabby Gabby and her ventriloquist dummy goons.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
