Inside Out is only the third movie I have seen in theaters this year. We debated going to see Jurassic World instead but we opted for this one instead.
We made the right choice. It was worth every penny.
This is Pixar storytelling at its finest, taking an abstract idea about emotions and feelings and turning it into a whole new world.
It was hard not to fall in love with Joy immediately because AMY POEHLER. Joy was very much a Leslie Knope type character, trying to keep the team at its best.
(I just lost like 20 minutes because I went over to tumblr and typed in “Inside Out Gifs” and then proceeded to save WAY too many of them…because this movie).
I’m not going to spoil it for you. This movie was beautiful. The characters were well written, the voice acting was top notch, and the story was classic, perfect, Pixar. It was truly a film for all ages, as a child, teen, young adult and adult could all watch this movie and get it in all the feels. I had tears rolling down my cheeks by the end, that same swirling of emotions that I got when I saw the final moments of Toy Story 3. (and Pixar knows you will be sniffling at the end, so they put some silly moments in as the credits start to roll to help you laugh the tears away).
Just go see it. Now. Go experience it in a dark theater with a group and hear them laughing and sniffling with you.
I give this movie all the stars. All the thumbs up. It will be a part of my collection as soon as I can purchase it on blu-ray.
