Growing up, I was convinced that we had little men in our tummies breaking down the food and sometimes, I even thought that we had little people helping us make our choices. I guess I wasn’t the only one who had these very thoughts! Disney Pixar has created one of the most heartwarming movies to date.
More About the Movie:
Do you ever look at someone and wonder what’s going on inside their head? Disney-Pixar’s “Inside Out” takes an exciting and hilarious journey into the mind to find the answer. Based in Headquarters, the control center of 11-year-old Riley’s mind, five emotions are hard at work, led by lighthearted optimist Joy. She strives to make sure Riley stays happy as she operates alongside fellow emotions Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness. It’s “an instant classic,” raves Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times. Experience it like never before on Disney Blu-ray!
All Your Emotions.
I took my girls to watch this movie on a girl’s night. They absolutely loved it, especially Sadness and Disgust. I particularly loved the story because as much as happiness and joy is essential in life and everyday situations, you do need all of the other emotions to help you make the right decisions.
Mimi was convinced that I was sadness, Gabby was Joy and she was Disgust. I have to say, I am completely okay with being Sadness after we finished watching the movie. You’ll love it because it is unique, it mostly takes place inside of 11-year-old Riley’s head who just moved from Minnesota to San Francisco. What happens on the outside is pretty normal tween stuff, she gives attitude to her parents, she doesn’t do well at a hockey try-out and she misses “home”. All of this is normal stuff but, as well all know from going through it, it can cause a lot of inner turmoil.
This movie is all about how we deal with emotions. Life isn’t always rainbows and unicorns, sometimes it requires a lot more so that we can successfully survive it and learn from it.
This movie makes a great gift for kids and any big kids who love Disney Pixar. This is one for the collection!
