Plot Summary: "Growing up can be a bumpy road, and it's no exception for Riley, who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job in San Francisco. Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions - Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness. The emotions live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley's mind, where they help advise her through everyday life. As Riley and her emotions struggle to adjust to a new life in San Francisco, turmoil ensues in Headquarters. Although Joy, Riley's main and most important emotion, tries to keep things positive, the emotions conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house and school." - Written by Pixar
My Thoughts: To be honest, I was impressed with this one. I love animated movies, but I thought that this one wouldn’t be very good. Thankfully, I was proven wrong! Inside Out was far better thought out than I had expected, and it gave me an interesting new way to personify the inner workings of the mind. The ending made a lot of sense to me, despite never having the same experience as the child in the film. If I had any criticism, it would have to be with the personified emotions. I thought it was strange that the representations of the emotions could also feel other emotions. For example, Joy could feel sad. Other than that, I thought the film was well done.
Verdict: See it in theaters!
