In order to power the city, monsters have to scare children so that they scream. However, the children are toxic to the monsters, and after a child gets through, 2 monsters realize things may not be what they think.
When the newly crowned Queen Elsa accidentally uses her power to turn things into ice to curse her home in infinite winter, her sister, Anna, teams up with a mountain man, his playful reindeer, and a snowman to change the weather condition.
The toys are mistakenly delivered to a day-care center instead of the attic right before Andy leaves for college, and it's up to Woody to convince the other toys that they weren't abandoned and to return home.
Growing up can be a bumpy road, and it's no exception for Riley, who 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, Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness. 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. Written by
When Joy runs through the cloud person in cloud town, the police officer starts to run after her and another officer says to him "Forget it, Jake, Its cloud town." This seems like a reference to the quote "Forget it Jake, its Chinatown." From the film Chinatown (1974) See more »
In the opening scene, the newborn Riley sees her parents in full-color. Human infants are born colorblind. The eyes' rods and cones (ergo, the ability to see color) don't fully form until about six months. See more »
Do you ever look at someone and wonder, "What is going on inside their head?" Well, I know. Well, um, I know Riley' head.

This was clearly written, acted, and directed by people who really understand the subtle shades of emotion. "Inside Out" ranks alongside "Up" for beautiful, intelligent story-telling.
The comedy is well-done, providing plenty of laughs without overwhelming the story, so the film stands up to repeated viewing. Fair warning: if you go in expecting laugh-a-minute, mindless slapstick, then you'll probably be disappointed. But if you are willing to acknowledge Sadness, you will be rewarded with a story that stays with you long after the credits are finished.
TL;DR? Ignore the haters, and enjoy being turned inside out.
