Movie Review: Inside Out

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.




  • 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)

    I can understand beijg frustrated at Sadness for touching the memories, but it’s as if she was compelled to do it. She didn’t even know why she was touching them, which is why she was so depressed with herself. I love the fact that they had sadness touch these memories though because it shows how we can associate both joy and a twinge of sadness at certain memories. It also made sense because she will no longer feel complete happiness with these memories being that they were of her old life back home. So I really enjoyed the reasoning behind Sadness touching the happy memories.

    As for Jo breaking character and leaving Sadness, it showed how we can’t always be joyful all the time. We tend to break character at times because it’s what makes us human.

    Oh Bing Bong!!! Even my 4 year old son still talks about how sad he is that billabong Bong disappeared!

    Love this movies so much ☺️.

    I loved this movie!! I thought it totally got what depression could really be like – especially the part where sometimes you don’t even understand why you’re sad yourself. I watched it on the plane flying from Australia to London, and I cried. (Although, when I got up to go the toilet, and I was waiting in line … I saw everyone that was watching it was crying, too.)
