No, it's too well-loved to be a cult. Definitely a classic. And even though some might describe it as a chick-flick, it definitely isn't. A lot of men like this film, and everyone knows that you don't put Baby in the corner.

*clapclap*

My thoughts exactly, I just couldn't put them so well :P I'm not a big fan of skipping-jumping-dancing-and-a-thousand-elephants movies and I've only seen Dirty Dancing once (which was enough) but it doesn't seem fair not to call it a classic! Most people know it, or know about it, isn't that enough? Not everyone likes The Godfather (I do!) but that's classic nr1...
Listen.

It's regenerated. Whether it's still any good is a matter of opinion. :|

In that case surely 'Disney becoming more Pixilated' would suffice, Pip? :lol:

I'm not so sure I would call the Disney/Pixar films classics. They're enjoyable and the animation is good, but I don't think they're keepers. I mean, toy gets jealous of another toy, toys make friends, the end. Not exactly Citizen Kane, is it?

Well personally i think Citizen Kane is overated . Its good but its not as great as some critics like to have us think.
And any story can be stripped down to its bare bones to make it sound simplistic (Clerks 2 Lord of the Rings rant is a great example of this) :D

But Toy Story doesn't need stripping, it's just bones!

:lol:

I agree, Toy Story's bare bones in the hands of Dreamworks would lead to a non-classic... :wink:

Actually, don't many of them still have bits of flesh on them, like the titular Corpse Bride? Only Tim Burton could make a film about necrophilia into a classic. :)
