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

Although the journey of Joy & Sadness through the mental maze is of course metaphorical, it's still depicted incorrectly. Since the first row of long-term memory shelves radiate away from the cliff edge for just a short distance, there's a clear path running all the way around the memory dump, which greatly simplifies the journey.

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

clever idea poorly executed, equals a boring waste of time
6 July 2015 | by See all my reviews

While the concept is clever, and it does have some humorous bits, especially in the closing credits, the overall execution of the story is poorly done. The story drags slowly, is very disconnected, and does not engage the viewer, ending up with the movie being a totally boring waste of time. I did not enjoy this film at all, even though it had a unicorn as a minor character.

The plot is one dimensional and does not go anywhere interesting. It really needed more time spent in development to really make something worthwhile out of the concept. I do not understand why it is doing so well. There is nothing creative in this film as opposed to Tomorrowland which was amazing and and brilliant! Do not waste your time on this film. It is not worth it.
