INSIDE OUT

PG

Animated; comedy

Ever wonder what goes on in the mind of an eleven year-old? Pixar Films explores the brain of young Riley, voiced by Kaitlyn Dias, in this newest Disney animated presentation.

After she is uprooted from her life and friends in Minnesota and moved to San Francisco, Riley’s emotions – Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness – conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house and school.

A stellar cast of voices Joy (Amy Poehler of “Parks and Recreation”), Sadness (Phyllis Smith of “the Office”), Fear (Bill Hader from “South Park”), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling), Bing Bong (Richard Kind), Mom (Diane Lane), and Dad (Kyle MacLachlan) makes “Inside Out” a fun movie for the whole family.

This unique, humorous story is by Peter Doctor and Ronaldo Del Carmen while the Screenplay was by Meg LeFauve & Josh Cooley and Peter Doctor. “Inside, Out” was directed by Peter Doctor who has directed other Disney hits, “Monsters, Inc.” and “Up.”

I saw this in 3-D at a screening Monday night at Wehrenberg’s Galaxy 14 in Chesterfield but I don’t think it is necessary to see it in 3-D. The primary and secondary colors are so rich and vibrant that you don’t need 3-D glasses although it was so cute to see little bitty kids running around wearing their little pink or blue 3-D glasses.

Also, I thought that maybe the concepts would be too complex for many youngsters to grasp but the kids all laughed in the right places and “Inside Out” seemed to keep their attention. At the end of the movie, there was applause and cheering. That always speaks volumes to me. Talking with children after the film, I found that every child I talked with seemed to love the film. Since the story was about a girl, I wondered whether the boys would like the film but the five boys I talked to liked it as well. As in most Disney films, all the parents loved the film and found it refreshing to bring their children to a film that was not violent and filled with bad language.

“Inside Out” opens today at AMC Eastgate Showplace 6 and AMC Showplace Edwardsville 12. Give yourself a treat and take your children or grandchildren to this fun-filled film. Or heck, just go by yourself, who cares if you take a kid or not.
