When the newly crowned Queen Elsa accidentally uses her power to turn things into ice to curse her home in infinite winter, her sister, Anna, teams up with a mountain man, his playful reindeer, and a snowman to change the weather condition.
In order to power the city, monsters have to scare children so that they scream. However, the children are toxic to the monsters, and after a child gets through, two monsters realize things may not be what they think.
The toys are mistakenly delivered to a day-care center instead of the attic right before Andy leaves for college, and it's up to Woody to convince the other toys that they weren't abandoned and to return home.
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
Originally Joy would be teamed with Fear rather then Sadness. The creators thought they would be the funnier pairing. They ended up going with Sadness instead when Pete Docter was on a Sunday walk and then had a bad train of thought. He feared he'd get fired and lose his friends. Because of this he realized Joy needed to realize it was ok for sadness to be at the controls once in a while. See more »
Sadness has the ability to change any memory she touches into a sad one, but no other emotion has this ability (Joy and Fear both handle memories with no effect). This is because there has been a huge change in Riley's life and for the first time it is possible for emotions to change. As Riley grows and matures the other emotions will be able to change memories too, but for now Sadness is the only one with this ability. See more »
Do you ever look at someone and wonder, "What is going on inside their head?" Well, I know. Okay, I know Riley's head.

I just got home from seeing Inside Out with my wife. We both thought it was the absolute worst movie Pixar has ever done.
I am a huge fan of Pixar's movies - they've done so many that are so astoundingly good, it's hard to say which one is the best. This movie, on the other hand, easily qualifies as their worst ever. No charm, no humor, no engaging, memorable characters. I kept waiting and waiting for the story to become what other Pixar movies have had - at least some humor or charm or something compelling to keep you watching. It had none of these things. It was a sad, depressing, boring, lackluster affair from start to finish. I'm truly amazed that so many people have found this to be one of Pixar's best efforts. It doesn't even come close to the Toy Story movies, A Bug's Life or my favorite, Finding Nemo. On a scale of 1 to 10, IMHO, Inside Out isn't even on the scale.
If you're thinking about going to see it, don't waste your money! A truly awful effort from a company that has set the bar incredibly high and failed, miserably, to live up to that bar.
