    Winner: Woody, Buzz and the Toy Story 3 Gang. A children’s adventure that tackled very adult issues without being dopey or pedantic, it took in more money -- $443 million -- than any other film, and if it doesn’t get a Best Picture Oscar, they may have to expand the field to 15 films.

    The popular movie review aggregator RottenTomatoes.com Tuesday named Disney's "Toy Story 3'' critics' top movie for 2010.

       The "Golden Tomato'' award for the best-reviewed wide-release film went to the animated Pixar release, which had a 99 percent positive rating based on 248 reviews.
      
    "Pixar and Disney hit yet another home run with 'Toy Story 3,''' Rotten Tomatoes editor Matt Atchity said. "Once again, the talented filmmakers at Pixar have shown that animation is as powerful a method of storytelling as live-action, and both audiences and critics were won over by 'Toy Story 3.'''
      
    It was the fourth year in row that a Pixar film has won the award.
      
    The worst reviewed movie was "Vampires Suck,'' which was given the "Moldy Tomato'' award for its 4 percent rating.
      
    The Chinese documentary "Last Train Home'' was awarded the Golden Tomato for best-reviewed film in limited release. All of its 45 reviews by Rotten Tomatoes critic were positive.
