Inside Out

{5/5} “All these facts and opinions look the same. I can’t tell them apart.”

Inside Out, released in 2015

Riley is an 11-year-old girl. Inside her head, her emotions try to keep things under control. Joy, Sadness, Fear, Disgust, and Anger all have their role to play. When Riley moves to a new city she has some trouble adjusting. Joy and Sadness inadvertently get thrown far away from their office. Fear, Disgust, and Anger try to do what Joy would do but they fail miserably.

This is a perfect movie. It has the cleverness of Monsters, Inc. and the tenderness of Up. It’s also extremely funny. It takes its place in the top tier of Pixar films — along with Monsters, Inc., WALL-E, Toy Story 1 & 2, and The Incredibles.

Hiring Lewis Black to play Anger was a brilliant move.

Stars the voices of Amy Poehler and Mindy Kaling. Directed by Pete Doctor (Monsters, Inc.) and Ronaldo Del Carmen.
