The Ins and Outs of Inside Out


Sydney Wagner, Staff Writer

Whether your emotions are always shown or if you keep them inside, “Inside Out” is a good movie that most people can relate to. It is a perfect movie to sit down and watch with your family.

“Inside Out” is an animated family movie that portrays the feelings of an 11 year old girl named Riley (Kaitlyn Dias). In the movie, Riley has five characters inside her head that act as her feelings. The characters, Joy (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Sadness (Phyllis Smith), Anger (Lewis Black), and Disgust (Mindy Kaling), control Riley’s actions and the way she expresses her feelings.

The five characters go through each day and are faced with new challenges but always make sure the day is great and that Riley is happy.

When Joy and Sadness get taken out of headquarters, the movie takes a surprising turn. They are taken to a different place in the brain, so they aren’t able to control her feelings anymore.

Joy and Sadness have to try to make their way back to headquarters with the rest of the characters. They are faced with challenges on the way back and fear that they might never make it, until they encounter a special memory from Riley’s past that helps them find their way.

“Inside Out” was overall a good movie but some parts really appealed to me and made my opinion a good one. I think the animation in the movie was done really well and I liked the plot of the story in the movie. I thought the characters perfectly portrayed the emotions in your head.
I think most kids and adults would like this movie because it seems like a movie that everyone would like and it is very funny, but still has some sad parts.
