The Characters of Inside Out
Joy’s goal has always been to make sure Riley stays happy. She is lighthearted, optimistic and determined to find the fun in every situation. Joy sees challenges in Riley’s life as opportunities, and the less happy moments as hiccups on the way back to something great. As long as Riley is happy, so is Joy.
Fear’s main job is to protect Riley and keep her safe. He is constantly on the lookout for potential disasters, and spends time evaluating the possible dangers, pitfalls and risk involved in Riley’s everyday activities. There are very few activities and events that Fear does not find to be dangerous and possibly fatal.
Disgust is highly opinionated, extremely honest and prevents Riley from getting poisoned – both physically and socially. She keeps a careful eye on the people, places and things that Riley comes into contact with – whether that’s broccoli or last year’s fashion trend. Disgust always has the best of intentions and refuses to lower her standards.
None of the other Emotions really understand what Sadness’s role is. Sadness would love to be more optimistic and helpful in keeping Riley happy, but she finds it so hard to be positive. Sometimes it seems like the best thing to do is just lie on the floor and have a good cry.
Anger feels very passionately about making sure things are fair for Riley. He has a fiery spirit and tends to explode (literally) when things don’t go as planned. He is quick to overreact and has little patience for life’s imperfections.
When 11-year-old Riley moves to a new city, her Emotions team up to help her through the transition. Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness work together, but when Joy and Sadness get lost, they must journey through unfamiliar places to get back home.

I knew from the trailers and reading a book about Pixar that this film was going to be different from the other ones that Pixar has released. I knew it was a gamble. But it also struck me as being more intelligent, more thoughtful, and perhaps more from the heart and soul than some of their other films (and that takes some doing). I was not wrong and I am glad I ventured out to a theater to see this film.
It's an ambitious undertaking to try to tell a story about the emotions in control of a person's mind, and even moreso when you dive into the other parts of their brain like the subconscious, dreams, and memories. On the surface this is a story of creatures trying to do their job who run into problems (two of the emotions get lost and have to find their way back), and the little girl who's life is undergoing changes that make her inability to express said emotions somewhat heart-breaking. But there is so much more going on here.
You can looks at this film and think that the people in it are being pushed around by the emotions in their head. You can see it as people being at the mercy of these emotions and other forces. Or...you can look deeper and see the introverted message of this film. That everything that happens inside of this young girl represents her reactions to events in her life. Have you ever felt that your dreams were really bizarre? Did you ever feel like you were out of touch with your emotions? Did your train of thought ever derail? In this film all of those events literally happen. And to me, there's a strong message about accepting yourself, and the different parts of yourself, and no telling them to just go away when times get tough. In my mind, as everything that happens to the girl in the real world is very much plausible for just about every kid growing up, the adventure inside of her head is actually happening in a similar way to every kid growing up (whoa!).
The entire journey is more consistently funny than any other Pixar film I've seen, as the dialog is extremely witty, the adventures more clever (a film studio that literally is "Dream Productions", maintenance workers sending commercial jingles up to a person's conscious mind because they think it's catchy, etc), but the true brilliance came in the mastery of the ordinary. All of us know what's it's like to be sad and embarrassed, or to lose part of ourselves, but those simple moments captured in this film had me tearing up like I was watching a Frank Capra film.
Very early in the film the child has a sad reaction that hit me very hard, but at the end of the film I felt an entire stream of tears falling off my face. It wasn't anything that everyone on Earth hasn't experienced in real life (family love when you are deeply sad) but the honesty of it got to me. My wife wasn't touched by any of that, but when a cherished memory is sacrificed to save the girl, she was crying too.
This isn't a sad movie, or a depressing one, but it a deeply touching one. It is also very much an adult, intelligent, introverted movie. Some kids may enjoy it, but others may not (the kid behind us in the theater said quite loudly that he was bored). As for me, I wanted to own this one. I'm not a Pixar fan in general, but I am a fan of this film. If you enjoy intelligent and heartfelt films go see it. You will probably deeply enjoy it, and might even feel yourself changed for the better.
What a wonderful movie! It was funny, heartwarming, and had a wonderful message about empathy.
I took my daughter to see this in the theater. We laughed. We cried (she was really affected by the feelings of the characters at the end and was bawling because she felt their sadness. That sounds sad and pitiful, but it is amazing how easily this movie connected with a 4 year old on a deep emotional level). It was just an all around amazing movie experience.
The way it breaks down complex psychological profiles into 5 funny and entertaining characters is fantastic. And it delves into some pretty intensive psychological concepts in a way that comes across as fun and entertaining. It's a funny movie. It's a heartwarming movie. And it's a very intelligent movie.
I loved the way it presented complex emotions and feelings as things that were much more relatable to a child. (Little colorful creatures acting like they feel) This let me have some pretty deep discussions with my daughter after the movie about feelings and how to understand them, recognize them, and talk about them. That's a pretty incredible thing to be able to do with a 4 year old as 4 year olds tend to be mostly impulse driven and act out specifically because they often don't understand what they are feeling. When you factor in that this ability to help a small child understand complex emotions comes from a cartoon about little brightly colored creatures....that's a pretty amazing.
I also loved how the story shows that there are no such things as 'bad' emotions. It clearly demonstrates that things like anger and sadness play an important role in who we are and that those emotions need to be explored, not ignored.
And my 4 year old little girl is a huge hockey fan, so the main character being a girl who plays hockey was just a super added bonus for us.
I literally could not have been more impressed with this movie. It's my favorite animated film since Finding Nemo.
