"Small Fry"

Title: "Small Fry"
Year: 2011
Length: 7 minutes
Director: Angus MacLane
Writer: Josh Cooley
Starring: Tim Allen
With: Tom Hanks, Jane Lynch, Teddy Newton
Music: John Powell
I saw it: in the theater, a couple days ago
Synopsis: a fun meal toy swaps places with Buzz Lightyear

My reaction
Concept: 3/4 (Good)
Story: 1/4 (Bad)
Characters: 3/4 (Good). It's getting ridiculous how many characters there are in the Toy Story world. A 7 minute cartoon should not be loaded with celebrity cameos. Most of the new characters are very funny, though.
Dialog: 3/4 (Good)
Pacing: 3/4 (Good)
Cinematography: 2/4 (Indifferent)
Special effects/design: 3/4 (Good)
Acting: 2/4 (Indifferent)
Music: 2/4 (Indifferent)
Subjective Rating: 6/10 (Okay, 2/4). One expects more from Pixar. It's cute and entertaining, but, for Pixar, it's only just a step above a DVD bonus feature.
Objective Rating (Average): 2.4/4 (Okay)
