A great first date
26 December 2017 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

Absolutely adore 'Inside Out'. One of my favourite Pixar films and ranks very highly by when it comes to animated films in general. Pixar have been responsible for some classic short films. 'Riley's First Date?' is not one of the classics but it's very good and at its best great all the same.

'Riley's First Date?' may lack the imagination of 'Inside Out' and it is for my tastes too short, would have given it a couple more minutes myself. Having said that, it was really fascinating seeing how a very relatable and relevant subject, that a vast majority of people go through, affects Riley's parents with the same idea with the emotions as with 'Inside Out'.

It's a great looking short, vibrant in colour, very rich in detail and with natural and expressive character designs. The music is a nice fit in how it's orchestrated and the mood it creates.

Writing is very funny (Anger in particular) and very sincere, and there is a sweet, fun and touching story. The characters are easy to engage with and the voice acting is very good from particularly Diane Lane and Kyle MacLachlan. Didn't think personally that Kaitlyn Dias was too old.

Overall, very good and great at its best. Would have been even better with a longer length. 8/10 Bethany Cox
