Can't believe all the parents freaking out over the mild animated violence in this movie, seriously, it's not that big of a deal, all you have to do is point out to your children that it's a bad way to behave/act. Also your kids will pick up on the fact that anytime woody or buzz, (mainly woody), says mean things, has physical fights or just a general bad attitude, things do not turn out well or easy for them, (they suffer consequences for their actions.) Sid is supposed to be the "bad guy" of the film, so of course parents, he's not going to behave like a perfect angel. As for calling him a sociopath, that is beyond exaggerated and completely ridiculous. I would go as far as he's a rebellious, destructive brat who doesn't appreciate his toys. Due to the fact that they portray Sid in a negative light, it teaches kids that they need to take care of their toys. Woody is jealous of buzz throughout a good portion of the movie, so it could be a good opportunity to explain to your children what that is and why it is wrong, (woody also realizes this in the end.) I think this movie is generally acceptable for children ages 3 and above, or even possibly 2, depending on the child. Questionable content includes a disturbing/scary scene when woody first sees the deformed toys. Could be too frightening for children younger than 3, kids 3 to 5 should see with an adult the first time. Good messages include woody learning that his jealous behavior toward buzz was wrong, and learns to share the attention of their owner, could be especially good for children with a new sibling to see. Buzz learns that he is not a real space ranger and is depressed that he can't be what he always dreamed to be, but learns at the end to have a new positive outlook on what he is and he can do. Sid learns that his mistreatment of his toys was wrong, and should always take care of them :) All in all, wonderful children's movie!
