On Friday, Toy Story 3 was the rare film beloved by 100 percent of critics (and, as of this morning, Rotten Tomatoes is still giving the film a 100 percent Tomatometer rating), but the New York Press's famously contrarian critic Armond White has, as expected, tarnished that clean slate, calling the film superficial and boring:
"Toy Story 3 is so besotted with brand names and product-placement that it stops being about the innocent pleasures of imagination and strictly celebrates consumerism ... none of these digital-cartoon characters reflect human experience; it’s essentially a bored game that only the brainwashed will buy into."
"I admit to simply not digging the toys-come-to-life fantasy (I don’t babysit children, so I don’t have to) ... It's a sap's story."
