Movie Info

Riley (Kaitlyn Dias) is a happy, hockey-loving 11-year-old Midwestern girl, but her world turns upside-down when she and her parents move to San Francisco. Riley's emotions -- led by Joy (Amy Poehler) -- try to guide her through this difficult, life-changing event. However, the stress of the move brings Sadness (Phyllis Smith) to the forefront. When Joy and Sadness are inadvertently swept into the far reaches of Riley's mind, the only emotions left in Headquarters are Anger, Fear and Disgust.

  • 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.

    August 14, 2015 | Rating: 4/4
  • 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.

  • Inside Out is animated cinema's brainstorm of the year, possibly the decade.

  • It is the universality of the film that makes it an instant classic. Inside Out combines simplicity with extraordinary formal daring and sophistication.

  • 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

    Widely original, funny and powerful all at the same time, Inside Out is a very strong showing from Pixar - and one that cements Pixar as the geniuses of this era of filmmaking.

    I may not be the target audience for Inside Out, but I know when Pixar is on form, and Inside Out meets the criteria. Given that the last Pixar movie I watched was Cars 2, I'm sure you can forgive me for being nervous going in to this latest effort. Thankfully, Inside Out completely dissuaded me of my fears, and brought forth a very message-centric film that is still entertaining for all those young and old.

    Funny, heart-warming, original. The best film by Pixar in years!

    Maybe the best animated movies I've ever seen, 'Inside Out' is very creative and touching at the same time. It makes you think about everything that could be going on inside the mind of a child when she's going through difficult adjustments in her life, and more generally, what goes on inside all of us. I'm not sure why the film has drawn such ire from some viewers, maybe it's just one of those love/hate movies, or maybe you (or a loved one) have to have gone through a serious struggle to have it resonate. I loved the poignant scenes of leaving childhood memories behind (wow! these were just stunning to me), and how the somewhat unlikely hero turned out to be little Sadness.
