Top Critic

Earnestness doesn't fully excuse the low-key schmaltz peddled by Life Inside Out, the type of indie that your mother might politely describe as "touching" if she could manage to stay awake for its entirety.

Top Critic

"Life Inside Out" is a gentle, poignant drama whose heart and head are squarely in the right place. Engaging, naturalistic performances and nicely explored real-world issues add to this absorbing film's down-to-earth appeal.
