Andy is 17 years old and headed off to college, meaning he doesn't have a place in his life for childhood things. The toys (save for Woody), fearing they'll be packed away in the attic and forgotten about forever, are mistakenly donated to the local daycare facility. There, their wishes to be played with once again are fulfilled all too well. They also meet a new collection of toys, including Barbie, Ken, Mr. Pricklepants, Chuckles the clown, and the grandfatherly Lots-O' Huggin' Bear, who may not be exactly who he seems to be. When Woody realizes that Andy still wants his toys, it's up to him to stage a daring rescue effort and break his friends out of Sunnyside Day Care

In the early 1980s, Charlie Wilson is best known as a womanizing US congressional representative from Texas. He seemed to be in the minor leagues, except for the fact that he is a member of two major foreign policy and covert-ops committees. However, once Charlie is prodded by his major conservative supporter, Joanne Herring, Wilson learns about the plight of the people who are suffering from the effects of the brutal Soviet occupation of Afghanistan. With the help of the maverick CIA agent, Gust Avrakotos, Wilson dedicates his canny political efforts to supply the Afghan mujahideen with the weapons and support needed to defeat the Soviet Union. Ultimately, Charlie learns that while military victory can be obtained, there are other consequences and prices to that fight that are ignored to everyone's sorrow. Based on a true story
