4. Toy Story 3
Year released: 2010
Overall U.S. box office gross: $415 millionThat's one big pile of money soaked in grown adults' tears. Disney and Pixar once again hit all the right emotional notes and brought the underpinnings of the Toy Story series -- the fickle wonder of childhood and its fast fade into adulthood -- to a their heart-wrenching conclusion. None of the Toy Story movies go easy on Woody, Buzz Lightyear or any of the other assorted playthings, but this look at the lives of toys once childhood is over sent American parents sprinting to their own parents' attics to see if their beloved plush pals were still there. It's a fine line between memory and masochism, but Toy Story 3 walked it deftly.
