I love how the movie talks about how emotions are and even helped me in my life and the movie is great for everyone in the family.
Notice that there are just a bunch of feelings in there, fighting it out for supremacy. There isn't any ego or soul that referees or sets goals or anything like that. This is remarkably similar to what we learn from modern brain science, e.g., "How the Mind Works," by Pinker. I'm surprised the religious commenters haven't picked up on this. How are they going to roast you in hell properly, if there's nobody in there who's responsible?
A really solid movie overall. I love how it plays with the 4th wall.
Now ponder this. What if feelings had feelings?
At first I didn't like this movie because it wasn't easy. But now it's one of my favorites, and perhaps the animated movie that I value most. It's really quite beautiful and humorous, sad and joyous, and very rewarding.
Who’s your friend who loves to play?! Bing-Bong... 😭
Emotional diversity is so important and I'm so glad a mainstream children's film addressed it (and addressed it well!).
Pixar does a fantastic job mixing emotions together in this movie voiced by lots of hilarious former SNL cast members.
First toys had feelings, then cars had feelings, & now feelings have feelings: Joy, Sadness, Fear, Anger and Disgust to be exact. We journey into the minds of our characters to explore the reasons for their behaviours and reactions. The best example of this mental metaphor is demonstrated in the closing credits within the mind of a cat. Some people may object to the gender stereotypes in the film, but stereotypes don't exist because of this film, they generally mirror the broad general behaviour of society; hence, the perfect stereotypical cat in the closing credit sequence.
Inventive and entertaining animation about a little girl's emotions when her family leaves the Midwest for San Francisco. Recommended.
Inside out is a Disney movie about what the emotions are doing in a pre-teens mind. The girls name is Riley and she is a happy, hockey-loving 11-year-old Midwestern girl. However, her world turns around completely when she and her parents move to sunny San Francisco, California. Riley's emotions are led by her lead emotion Joy. Joy tries to guide her through this difficult, life-changing event. The changes, the pressure and the stress of the moving forces Sadness to the forefront. Because Joy and Sadness could not get along, they end up in the far reaches of Riley's mind. This is definitely one of my all time favourite children’s movies because the story is set up for kids and has a deep, meaningful message. The movie teaches children what is most important in life while keeping everyone in the audience entertained. The movie was obviously well thought out and it definitely shows. I do feel that this movie went under appreciated and deserved more credit when it came out. That is why i would recommend this movie to everyone. Overall, I would rate this movie five out of five stars. @Sapphirereads of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board
“Inside Out” is one of the best movies I have ever watched. The really interesting thing I found in this movie was the voices used for each character. If I were to give my emotions a voice they would be the exact same, and I mean exact. That is very strange and that's what makes the movie more entertaining. I would have never been able to describe how they sound like. I am shocked that these are so accurate and I wonder how they did it so perfectly. Another great thing that I noticed about this movie is that it’s very relatable and anyone can understand it. The creative put into creating this movie must have been very time consuming and I hope that they make more movies like this in the future. 5/5 rating.

Inside Out is very good movie and I definitely think that you should watch it! It is one of those movies that can be entertaining to many ages! The comedy and voices in this movie are hilarious! This is one of those movies that put you through an emotional roller-coaster (in a good way). Inside Out teaches children to express their emotions, and learn how to handle themselves. It has a very entertaining and intriguing story. I also think that the voices of the characters fit them perfectly! I’m sure everyone can relate to at least one thing in things movie, especially with the emotions.

It was a good friendly movie. I enjoyed it. I loved the humor in this movie and this movie was well thought out. I loved all of the emotions in the film and the storyline was good as well. Because of all these things the plot was good as well. One thing I loved about the movie was the that it was really relatable to both older kids and young kids and did a wonderful job teaching kids some good lessons. This movie had amazing animations, colors, and themes. I think this movie teaches kids to express themselves and helps them to understand themselves better. I totally recommend this movie to ages 2-12. I give this movie a 4.5 out of 5 stars. -@terrificbooklover of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library
Such a beautiful story. Very deep for a children's movie. There were so many moments sprinkled in that only adults would understand and I loved that. I might have to buy a copy of this movie for myself!
The story of Riley's emotions struggling with growing up is - in classic Pixar tradition - funny, thoughtful, and touching. The music is also beautiful.
I liked it. I am a 55 year old man and I haven't seen a Disney movie in decades.
I would say that it is classic Disney.
I was impressed by some of the animation, like the little girls hair. At times it looks real.
Very thoughtful. Great imaginations and analogy. Very nice for kids and adults too.
I enjoyed this cartoon DVD. It helps young children to learn how to visualize working through their emotions. The plot was strong. It is emotional. There are some scary parts in the movie for young children.
Great movie, fun for little ones, introspective for tweens, totally hits the spot for parents. Without sadness, pain and fear there cannot be joy.
