Riley (Kaitlyn Dias) was born in Minnesota. From the moment she was born, the emotions in her head controlled her actions. In the beginning it was really easy. Mostly Joy (Amy Pohler) ran things as she was a happy baby, but occasionally Sadness (Phyllis Smith), Anger (Lewis Black), Fear (Bill Hader), and Disgust (Mindy Kaling) would take their turns at the controls. Another major task of the emotions was to keep the memories safe, and to transfer them to long term memory at night when Riley slept. But as she grew older, and the family moved to San Francisco, bad things happened and Joy and Sadness were locked outside the control room and they had to work long and hard to try to get back to the control room to prevent something awful from happening to Riley in this animated Pixar feature.

It’s interesting that this film is rated PG, as it’s not a kids film. But the kids will love it, just the same. The meaning of all the goings on here require a lot of life experience to understand, but the colors are bright, the characters are all fun, and the fact that the kids cannot understand the nuances here won’t make any difference. This means that for the grown ups, this film will be very enjoyable as the concepts are complex and little things will remind you of your childhood experiences with an adults understanding of what was going on. But it’s a great film for the kids to enjoy as well. Then 10 or 15 years from now they’ll run across it again, and have a whole new experience seeing how complex this film really is. The price of admission is worth it, just for the short feature “Lava” at the very beginning. Pixar always starts us off with a very good cartoon. This one is a Hawaiian legend put to song that is really good. The movie itself is also very good for all ages, and this is a shoe in for the best animated film of 2015. Pixar has another winner. If you can still get a chance to see this in the theater, it’s certainly well worth it, but if you miss it, be sure to catch it as soon as the DVD is released. This is a MUST SEE movie.
