My family and I were so excited for the opportunity to view Inside Out on Monday! The movie was simply a great Pixar movie. My oldest named Inside Out her favorite Pixar movie of all time and My husband told me that we are buying the movie the day it comes out on DVD. Before I get to the movie I have to mention the fantastic short Lava that plays right before Inside Out. Lava is about a volcano looking for someone to love. The song is so beautiful you want to cry and once you add in the spectacular animation you will become at least misty eyed! I would go to the movie just to watch the short! That being said Inside out is just as fantastic. I might be a little bias, as I grew up near San Francisco, but Pixar made the Golden Gate bridge and San Francisco even more beautiful. Now most of the movie takes place inside Riley's mind (an 11 year old that is moved from Minnesota to San Francisco.) We get to meet her emotions, Joy, Sadness, Fear, Disgust, and Anger. (The casting was perfect!) As you can imagine moving away from your home and all your friends in the Midwest and moving to San Francisco, which is very different, would be hard for an 11 year old. We get to see how her emotions interact and how they affect what Riley does. I don't want to give too much of the movie away so I will just tell you to go and see it! Take your whole family, from your little ones to Grandparents, it is a movie everyone can watch and will love.
