This is a great family film overall. It is smart, inventive, fun, emotional, and quite clever.
The storyline is very creative and original. It takes the viewer inside a person's mind and features emotions in the shape of characters. It also explores a whole world inside the mind featuring memories, dreams, and imagination. This is quite possibly Pixar's most original idea since Toy Story.
The characters are likeable and entertaining. We have the four emotions, Joy, Sadness, Anger, Disgust and Fear who operate the feelings of a young girl named Riley as she and her mom and dad have moved to a new home. You care for Riley as things go wrong in the world inside her mind. You also care for the emotions as Joy and Sadness set out on a quest to set things right while Anger, Disgust and Fear are left on their own, and you want the emotions to succeed. My favorite character is Anger.
Pete Docter did a great job directing. It has gorgeous and colorful animation and unique and stylish designs.
It is also very funny at times. This is one of those where the humor actually works and I laughed more than I usually do at he theater. I am not going to spoil anything but you may want to stick around during the credits.
Overall, Inside Out is another very impressive animated family feature from Pixar and I would highly recommend it to anyone who is a fan of animation.
Inside Out is now in theaters and I would recommend seeing it on the big screen.
