The movie relates to children growing up and how they learn to adapt. Riley the main character is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father 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).
Riley's 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.
Ellie's Little Opinion: I really liked the movie, but I don't think kids under 5 would understand it. My favourite character was Disgust, she was very funny and made me laugh! I liked at the end how the core memories in Riley's mind turned from one colour to two or three colours. It was fun to see what happens inside the brain. After the movie I was filled with Joy and a little disgust!
Mum's Big Opinion: I thought this movie was very funny and at times only the adults where laughing in the cinema ( I was told after the movie I was constantly laughing!!!). The movies storyline may be hard for the little ones to follow. At times I had to remind Alyssa that these emotions were in Riley's brain and no they where not going to come out and play. It was great to see the range of emotions and the movie did a good job providing the kids with common examples on how we feel these emotions. Cannot wait for the puberty button (NOT!!).
