At the movies: Inside Out

January 21, 2016

Inisde Out

Riley is a happy child who enjoys school, friends, family, and hockey.  Things are different, though, when her family moves to San Francisco for her dad’s job.  Riley is unsure of herself and has trouble fitting in.

Riley, and her emotions (who live in Headquarters), work to help her settle in her new environment but it’s not easy.  Joy, her primary emotion, has her hands full trying to keep things in balance.  Things aren’t going well, but Joy believes in Riley and sacrifices everything to help her adjust.

Inside Out is an animated film about emotions that will tug at your heart strings.  It’s a movie children will enjoy and adults will appreciate.  I’ve heard others say the movie made them cry but I remained dry eyed throughout.  I enjoyed the movie and thought it was funny and sweet but I’m glad I waited to watch it at home.

    I’m kind of relieved that you didn’t cry – I’ll put this on our queue.

    I think this looks like lots of fun. I think I need to watch it soon. Not very up on movies for the younger set as we don’t have any of those around. LOL

    I will probably watch this at home, since the other person in my house definitely would not go to the theater with me for this one!

    I think I liked it better than you did. I saw it with a bunch of adults and gave it a 3.5/4.

    I love these animated movies. I haven’t seen one in a while.

    This one seems like it’s very helpful for children. Moving…

    I really liked this one, but my daughter was less than enthused the first time she saw it. She likes it but its not something she’s obsessed with like she is with other animated shows.

    I didn’t cry either but I did really like the movie! I thought it was super adorable.

    Kathy, I saw this one a few months ago. I enjoyed it.

    I love this movie–and my daughter does too. I imagine I will grow tired of watching it . . . over and over and over and over and over . . . you get the point. LOL

    This is one I really want to see.

    I think Gage will like this one, if he can ‘get’ the concept. We’ll see 🙂

    It seems like Inside Out will win the Oscar for sure for animated film. Did you see Carol? I thought it good but not sure it lived up to the hype.

    My kids and I are dying to see this one!!! Based on what I’ve heard, I’m surprised you remained dry-eyed!

    I love animated films and this one sounds good. I’ll add it to the queue.

    My kids and I really liked it. I stayed dry-eyed too. My favorite thing was Lewis Black as Anger. Perfect casting!

    I cried a little. But I honestly enjoyed Shaun the Sheep more.
