“Toy Story,” Pixar’s first feature, is a film beloved by millions, but it requires a lot of suspension of disbelief. That’s where Cinema Sins (motto: “No movie is without sin”) comes in.
In less than nine minutes, the site breaks down its many beefs with the animated classic, chief among them the fact that the toys are never caught talking and moving around, despite being pretty reckless. The video takes to task Andy’s poor spelling and handwriting for his age, the creepy sexual innuendo between Woody and Bo, and the oh-so-convenient fact that Andy always seems to leave his bedroom door closed when he leaves, allowing the toys to do whatever they want without anyone seeing them.
As for the film’s second act, when Woody and Buzz are discovered by devilish next door neighbor Sid, Cinema Sins finds it strange that the boy “just happens to be at the Pizza Planet because evil always lurks at pizza-themed restaurants.” There are items missing from certain shots, questionable uses of a remote control car — and did the video mention that NO ONE notices these toys racing down the street chasing a moving van?
In all, Cinema Sins tallied 76 different grievances. While we’re sure that it feels good for the site to get that off of its chest, we have to wonder if they’ve ever heard of the concept of a fictional film. It’s not supposed to be 100 percent believable, guys — especially when the protagonists are talking toys.

Gallery | Animated Movie Mistakes
- ‘The Lion King’ (1994)
While we don’t want to admit there’s anything wrong with this Disney classic, we can’t keep lying to ourselves. In a few scenes, Nala’s eyes change color from blue to green, then back to blue. Or is the other way around? Either way, turns out “The Lion King” isn’t the perfect movie.
- ‘Shrek’ (2001)
In one touching and funny scene, Shrek and Donkey are sitting by the fire and looking at the stars when Donkey asks Shrek about “our swamp.” Shrek promptly tells him “there’s no we, there’s no our.” In that moment, Shrek blinks and you can see his eyeball slicing through his eyelid. That one definitely slipped by the movie’s animators.
- ‘Aladdin’ (1992)
When Jafar is holding Jasmine captive, she attempts to convince the sorcerer that she is in fact under his spell, during which we can clearly see a gold bracelet on her right arm. After Jafar figures out the princess is tricking him, he pushed her down, and that gold bracelet magically switches arms.
- ‘Beauty and the Beast’ (1991)
While the Beast is throwing a temper tantrum towards the beginning of the animated classic, he slashes a picture of his still-human self. The cuts in the painting initially go downwards from left to right. However, when Belle wanders into the forbidden wing of the house where the picture is kept, the slashes go down from right to left.
- ‘Chicken Run’ (2000)
When mean Mr. Tweedy collects the chickens’ eggs, he diligently makes note of which birds were “eggless.” The problem is, he’s actually horrible at keeping track. In one shot, a close up reveals that chickens 276 and 277 did not lay any eggs, but, in the next wide shot, the dashes next to those numbers turn into checks.
- ‘Lilo & Stitch’ (2001)
In one of the movie’s first scenes, Lilo is taking a hula lesson, at which two men are serving as drummers. In one shot, both men are holding yellow drums shaped like bowling pins. But in another shot, the man on the right is holding a completely different drum.
- ‘The Little Mermaid’ (1989)
While Grimsby is presenting Eric with a very creepy statue of the prince, a sailor has a magical quick-change moment. In one shot, said sailor’s shirt is white with blue stripes, and in the next, it’s blue with blue stripes.
- ‘Monsters, Inc.’ (2001)
When “Monsters, Inc.” scarer George exits a kid’s room, he takes home a memento: a sock. In one shot the child-contaminated article is facing the middle of George’s back. In the next shot, the sock is flipped around, facing the monster’s shoulder.
- ‘The Simpsons Movie’ (2007)
In the movie theater when Homer ever so gracefully gets up to tell his fellow moviegoers that what they’re watching sucks, we can clearly see the characters’ original seating arrangements: Lisa is next to Marge, Marge is next to Homer, etc. In the next shot, a spontaneous game of musical chairs must’ve taken place because a lot of the characters’ seats have changed.
- ‘Toy Story’ (1995)
While stuck in Sid’s toy torture chamber, Woody tries to figure out a way to stop Buzz from getting blown to bits. While that’s all well and good, take note of the clock on wall. In the beginning of the scene, the time reads 3:10, but a few minutes later, the clock reads 10:00.
