Movie Info

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 (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith). 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. -- (C) Pixar

Almost as if someone realized that kids were people too...Inside Out truly pushed the envelope when it comes to kiddy flicks.

Inside Out, which is co-directed by Pete Docter and Ronaldo Del Carmen, may be [Pixar's] most inventive film yet.

June 10, 2016 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

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.

Audience Reviews for Inside Out

I have to say I am not the target audience for this at all, so my review should probably be taken with a grain of salt if you like kids movies. I personally can't stand them and find them cloying and irritating. This was no exception. Goofball island? Family island? Oh please... (Needless to say, I watched under protest). It looks great and I could handle the disgust character. That's probably the best I can say for it.

Inside Out is the typical Pixar formula of laughs, heart, adventure, and dazzling visuals, though not as memorable as The Incredibles or Up.

After a series of middling disappointments, Pixar returns to glory with the animative "Inside Out". Loaded with imagination, color and crackling with emotion, "Inside Out" is quite magical. The story of the going-ons inside a young girl's head prove to be an amazing device on how to convey that all emotions are important in achieving true fulfillment in life. While at the surface it looks like a children's tale, "Inside Out" strikes that perfect Pixar balance of fun for both adults and kids. The voice performances are superb with Amy Poehler and Phyllis Smith as standouts. Colorful and delightful - one of Pixar's best offerings in years.
