I finally saw Inside Out last night and let me tell you… this movie gave me all the feels. By the end of it we were all thinking “Wow I thought this was a kids movie” In honor of the movie being about the different feelings and how they interact, my review will be broken down into those categories.
CONSIDER THIS YOUR SPOILER ALERT!
- The part that scared me a little was the one where they decided that an 11 year old should travel from California to Minnesota by herself. What? No! That’s the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard of. Thankfully it didn’t happen though. Also, the clown was a little creepy…
- To be totally honest, Sadness made me very angry. Why would you touch the memories?! Maybe the first time she could get a pass but after you learn that you completely alter the memory why would you continue to do it?
- I understand why she did it, but I was kind of disgusted when Joy left Sadness behind. Despite the fact that the whole thing was her fault, I feel like that should have been out of character for her since she is usually the comforting one.
- Oh where do I begin? There’s the part where Riley starts crying in class, when the control panel broke and Riley couldn’t feel anything, but the most heart breaking part of the movie is when Bing Bong jumps off of the wagon so that Joy could make it and then is completely forgotten. 😦 Poor Bing Bong
- Other than that one scene, Joy is definitely a little ray of sunshine at the beginning. And of course my favorite part is at the end when they fix everything and realize that she can feel more than one thing at a time.
If you haven’t seen this movie yet I recommend it. BUT I don’t think I’ll ever watch it again because it was a lot for a kids movie. 4/5 stars (minus one because of all the frustration)
