Storyline

Growing up can be a bumpy road, and it's no exception for Riley, who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job in San Francisco. Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions - Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness. The emotions live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley's mind, where they help advise her through everyday life. As Riley and her emotions struggle to adjust to a new life in San Francisco, turmoil ensues in Headquarters. Although Joy, Riley's main and most important emotion, tries to keep things positive, the emotions conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house and school. Written by Pixar

Goofs

Sadness reads the mind manuals, indicating evidence that she knows how to read. However, later when Bing Bong misreads a sign that says "Danger" as "Shortcut," Sadness doesn't point out that the sign says "Danger" when she tries to convince Joy to go around instead, which she should have been able to do, since she knows how to read.

people's emotions are "little personas" that live inside their heads.
29 September 2015 | by See all my reviews

awesome premise, horrible execution.

in one word describing this movie: misandrist.

why do you say do i say this movie is anti-men?

so there are characters for each "emotion" all the male characters have male emotions..the females all have female emotions.EXCEPT ANGER..its male only and except FEAR it's a bubbling idiot of a "man"

the man hating comments almost never end.

i could go through every scene but i simply do not want to put myself through watching it again.

when Hollywood stops hating on men maybe they can get an acceptable role in movies representing responsible parts of the family again.

otherwise expect more and more men going their own way.
