We have tickets to see Toy Story 4 today. My 4 year old is excited and I don’t have anyone who can watch my 2 year old, so I was planning on bringing her along. I just read reviews and have found out how scary it is. I am able to leave the theatre with my 2 year old anytime and my 4 year old will be able to stay with friends if he chooses. Those who have watched the movie, will it be possible to leave for the scary parts or are they weaved throughout? When do they happen?

we saw it on Monday....not too sure which scary bits the reviews are referring to....

Semi Spoiler Alert

there are creepy ventriloquist dolls - they are featured throughout pretty much...would be hard to pin point a time that you could leave - it’s  possible your kids may not get the scary reference?

there’s a bit right at the end when some plush toys have a kind of “hulk” fantasy..from memory that’s when the credit roll, so you feasibly leave before then.

The scary bits as above are the ventriloquist dolls and the toy fantasy - but unless you know what movies they are referencing I don't think they are scary.  Most kids in the theatre when I went found them funny.  You could distract your 2 year old with some food when the toys go into the antique store but overall the movie isn't really scary.  I think the common sense reviews are generally a bit over the top.

We saw it with DS11 and think we liked it more than DS, the last 20mins or so dragged but I thought it was great.

Thinking for a 2 year old the ventriloquist dolls may be a little scary possibly but no overall I can't imagine anything too bad in it.

DS would not have made any whole movie at that age as that but you know your child so if they will sit through it it should be fine.

I was expecting a little scare for DD because of reviews.  It wasn't scary at all for her. I think you would be able to distract your 2 yr old easily enough.

My 3 year old wasn’t scared
The dolls are more frightening for adults then kids I think!

The dolls jumping out were a bit scary. I think the 2 year old would likely be fine if on your lap and eating popcorn. I don’t think you’ll be able to leave, they are kind of peppered throughout, which is probably what makes it kid friendlier.

As with pp, I think the adults were more disturbed by the dolls than the kids.

DS5 was a bit freaked by the dummies, mainly during the part where they are trying to rescue Forky from Gabi Gabi. He normally puts his hands over his ears and hides his face. The section of suspense is about 2 minutes.
We just did Secret Life of Pets and again he wasn't happy with the wolves chasing scenes and there was 2 of them. But over in 1 minute or so. I try to only go to animated films as they dont look real. We won't be going to The Lion King or Aladdin anytime soon as they are live action or very lifelike.

Actually now I think about DS when he was 5/6 was terrified by Chicken Run

It is the only time he has ever mentioned (in his life) having nightmares.

(sorry not quoting you for any reason other than your post reminded me!)

I didn’t think it was scary but thought it was a bit slow. My 6yo agreed. (I think they should have left it at 3 movies).

Lol ah, I took my 10 year old to see it on Saturday and it's not scary at all.

Dd and I loved it and thought it was possibly the best movie in the series yet!

I thought it was scary.

4yo thought it was scary.

The scary parts are peppered through the storyline.

If it helps (with the benefit of hindsight) the 4yo would probably have thought Toy Story 3 (the toys in the childcare centre and also the scene with the garbage/incerator) scary too.

Oh well, no long term damage I don't think.
