    7 / 10
    The sequel to Toy Story is slightly better (and funnier) than the original, but still, it`s no masterpiece of storytelling.
    The only truly funny character is Mrs. Potato Head (the incredible Estelle Harris).
    The video transfer is good. There are no visible compression signs and the colors are nicely saturated. Obviously, the CG is better than in the original movie.
    The DD 5.1 soundtrack is good. The surrounds are nicely used.
    There`s also a DD 5.1 French soundtrack.
    The menus are still and silent.
    The extras include about 15 minutes of behind the scenes featurettes, some funny "outtakes" and the very first Pixar movie from 1986.
    Bottom line - while it`s better than its prequel, it`s not as good as I was hoping for.
