Friday night was family movie night around here and we had the privilege of watching the newly released Inside Out. We didn’t get a chance to see this wonderful movie in theatres so this was our first time watching it and I have to say it was AMAZING!
I personally loved every minute of it and thought it was a great movie to show kids how they can successfully mix their emotions to create wonderful long lasting moments. It was delightful to see Joy realize the importance of Sadness in Riley’s life. When she realized that some memories were still important even though there was sadness at the event being remembered. I found the movie very relatable in terms of how moms and dads think differently and it was interesting to see how Anger, Disgust, and Fear tried to deal with issues while Joy and Sadness were trying to get back to headquarters. I think it may have given some parents (myself included) some insight into why our children might be acting the way the do……
We were only able to watch the movie with our two oldest boys but they really loved the movie and I could tell they were feeling many emotions themselves throughout the movie. I love how “into” movies my boys get. They really get attached to the characters and when sad things happen they are sad and when happy things happen they are happy. It’s so wonderful to watch their expressions during particularly emotional scenes.
About the film:
Do you ever look at someone and wonder what’s going on inside their head? Disney-Pixar’s “Inside Out” takes an exciting and hilarious journey into the mind to find the answer. Based in Headquarters, the control center of 11-year-old Riley’s mind, five emotions are hard at work, led by lighthearted optimist Joy. She strives to make sure Riley stays happy as she operates alongside fellow emotions Fear, Anger, Disgust, and Sadness.
