I took my kids to see Inside Out in the theater and we all walked out after just…happy! I don’t love taking my kids to see animated films. The exception to that has always been Disney movies. They just rarely go wrong. They always have humor adults can appreciate and messages that we ourselves are trying to drive home to our kids.
I was especially interested in Inside Out because of the focus on emotions. I thought it was so well done the way that they so vividly expressed Riley’s emotions and the characters even looked like you’d imagine them to feel.
Sadness was actually my favorite character. I just thought she was hilarious. The voice was perfect for the face and her one liners were a crack up. Ironically, sadness made me happy! My daughter’s favorite was Disgust just because she had the best outfit and she liked her eyelashes. Kids! They’re so easy to please. My son liked Anger the best which didn’t entirely surprise me. I did think it was interesting that my son was more interested in an emotion often attributed to men and my daughter to one attributed to women; but that’s a whole other subject matter!
As always, the DVD/Blu-Ray combo is the best value. I put the Blu-Ray in our main TV room and the DVD in the car for when we’re on the road. The digital copy is great to have too if I want to key it up in another room. Yes we are one of those families with multiple TV’s. Some people think you would never need all those copies but I definitely use them all! Bonus features are always fun and this is a movie that’s full of them!
Yesterday I shared about the Disney Short Film Collection we got and sadly, my new favorite Lava wasn’t on them but I have it now on this DVD! When it came on in the theater I was instantly in love and I was actually disappointed when I realized it wasn’t part of the movie we were watching. Not for long of course! Now I have them both!
Inside Out is a movie for the whole family with lovable characters, memorable moments and a lesson for everyone to remember. This would make the perfect stocking stuffer!
About the DVD/Blu Ray
Growing up can be a bumpy road, and it’s no exception for Riley (Kaitlyn Dias), who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father (Kyle McLaughlan) starts a new job in San Francisco. Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions – Joy (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith). 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.
