In the first half of the film, I was being piloted by Confusion and Dissatisfaction. But by the end, Joy was very much in charge.

Inside Out [is] a bold, gorgeous, sweet, funny, sometimes heartbreakingly sad, candy-colored adventure that deserves an Academy Award nomination for best picture.

Tthe ordinary trauma of an 11-year-old girl coming to terms with a new life and school while losing all her old, comforting, childish certainties has become a glittering, bravura piece of cinema, a comedy both wise and tender.

This is a movie that dares to explore existential crises, in the middle of the summer, in an animated movie that's aimed at the whole family

On the scale of inventiveness, "Inside Out" will be hard to top this year. As so often with Pixar, you feel that you are visiting a laboratory crossed with a rainbow.

The challenge here involves maintaining a believable humanity while also making an entertaining case that humanity is impossible without the proper emotional configuration. And in meeting that challenge, the movie keeps surprising and delighting you.

Inside Out is the best American-produced animated film we have seen in many summers and deserves to be recognized as such.

Inside Out is the first psychological thriller that's fun for the whole family. Really psychological. And really fun.

Inside Out is imaginative and ambitious, even if it sometimes feels a bit manically overstuffed. And it's definitely a big step up from some recent Pixar films, such as Cars 2 and Monsters University.

At times, you ache to put the brakes on the chaos, but still Pixar manages to do what it does best, turning the everyday rough and smooth of childhood experience into a thoughtful, inventive adventure.

Not since Up, has the studio taken on the gnarliness of being human and made it so visually delightful and emotionally resonant.
