          Toy story is a buddy movie or an adventure tale with the two main characters are cowboy Woody and the old-time favorite space ranger Buzz Lightyear as the battery-operated newcomer. This story is about Woody, a traditional pull-string talking cowboy, has long enjoyed a place of honor as the favorite among six-year-old Andy’s menagerie of toys. Quick to calm their anxieties about being replaced by newer arrivals, Woody finds his own confidence shaken and his status as top toy in jeopardy, upon the arrival of Buzz Lightyear, simply the coolest space action figure ever made. Woody plots to get rid of Buzz, but finally he and Buzz was lost in the outside world with Buzz as his only companion. Joining forces to find their way home, the two rivals set out on an adventure that lands them in the clutches of Sid, a sadistic neighborhood kid who is notorious for dismembering and reassembling “mutant” toys in his bedroom. As “guest” of Sid, Woody and Buzz forge a genuine friendship and learn that only through mutual trust and not easily give up is their only chance of survival.
          “Friendship will never end”. We always heard that sentences and we also might agree with it. It is true that friendship will never end if it base on a genuine friendship. Without a genuine friendship, the relationship that has been build will surely become estranged or even worse, might be break. Example of friendship that we can see from this movie is a friendship that has been build between Andy and Woody. Even though Woody is only a toy, but for Andy, Woody is his best friend and when Woody is missing from home, Andy felt so sad. Another example that we can see in this story is when Woody show this quality of friendship when he tried to save Buzz from being exploded by Sid using an explode-rocket. Even though Woody had tried to get rid of Buzz, but at the end of the story they become best-friend because of that incident.   As a conclusion, a good friend is a friend that always will stand by your side no matter in what condition.  
          Second lessons that I learn through this movie is the important of mutual trust in a relationship. Mutual trust is a shared belief that depend on each other to achieve a common purpose. In this story, mutual trust is shown when Woody and Buzz tried to escape from Sid’s room. Woody and Buzz build a mutual trust by teamwork in their mission to find their way out. Another mutual trust example that we can see from this movie is when the tiny little soldiers are cooperate to get down from Andy’s room to scout out the new arrivals of present on birthdays and Christmas.  In conclusion, it is strongly recommended that mutual trust is a critical value that relationship should have so that the relationship will last forever. Without a mutual trust, a relationship that been build will be fragile and easily break.
          Third lesson that I get from this story is don’t let jealously control your thinking or get in the way of making new friend. In this movie, because of jealously, Woody tried to get rid of Buzz because he think that Andy’s will never play with him again after Buzz is coming into Andy’s “world”. But things backfire and Woody finds himself lost in the outside world with Buzz as his only companion. Nevertheless, Woody had to cooperate with Buzz to find their way home to Andy’s room. Furthermore, jealously will only getting a relationship in a worse condition. So, as the conclusion, we must tried to get rid of our jealously if we care about the relationship that has been build.
          Last but not least, as the conclusion, genuine friendship and mutual trust is the most critical value that friendship should have in a way of having a long-lasting relationship. In addition, don’t let jealously get in your mind and control your thinking or get in the way of making new friend so that we will be able to get more new friends. :)
