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.
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.
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.
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
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.

Do you ever look at someone and wonder, "What is going on inside their head?" Well, I know. Okay, I know Riley's head.

This is one of few movies I've gone into with high expectations and still came out blown away. I was anticipating this movie since I saw the trailer, but not as much as other upcoming movies. I still didn't think it'd be as fantastic as it was, but went to see it in theaters anyway.
Inside Out is superb. It's proof that when Disney and Pixar work together magical things happen. And I'm not joking about that, Inside Out is truly amazing. I was a little annoyed by the amount of praise it received for originality, because the idea itself isn't exactly original. It's been used before, its just not as common as other types of movies. That's not to say the rest of the movie isn't original, however.
All the main characters are fantastic, each one clearly and perfectly depicting their particular emotion throughout the movie. And yet somehow they don't feel flat or like they defined by a single emotion. They feel real. They actually work together which builds their relationship and really adds to their development. Outside the mental world, Riley feels very real. She's relatable, which really adds to the movie as no one can relate to only a single emotion. Some people I've heard complained about her sudden mood swings, but I have those all the time. I want to do something, then I don't, then I do again. It makes sense, and Pete Docter does an excellent job at this.
The way everything works in the brain is very interestingly and creatively explained, such as why songs get stuck in your head or how you forget things. It's all very fun to watch and see what Disney and Pixar came up with. It all makes sense without taking itself too seriously.
This is the only movie (other than the Iron Giant) that has ever made me cry. Making someone like me feel emotion is a true feat for a movie. And I wasn't the only one. I could hear my manly rugby- playing friends crying harder than I did next to me. This is truly an emotional movie. Even after having the ending spoiled to me I still cried under my 3D glasses.
Overall, Inside Out is a superb movie. I wouldn't say it's absolutely flawless, but it's pretty darn close. No rating other than a 10/10 could be justified for a movie like this. For children and adults alike, I recommend this work of art. It's funny, creative, emotional, well-acted, realistic, and very, very well done. If you don't/didn't enjoy this movie, then I truly feel sorry for you, because it is a masterpiece. If you can spare 94 minutes, then I recommend Inside Out, and if you don't have 94 minutes, make time to watch it. You won't regret it.
