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
This movie is Breaking The Waves for kids. An hour and a half of ever deepening misery is not mitigated by a two minute happy ending. Wrap it in Christmas paper and call it "It's a wonderful life Jr." Why would you drag yourself over emotional broken glass for this long in the hopes of a positive resolution? Do you find joy in hitting yourself on the head with a two by four, because you know that eventually the pain will stop, like when you pass out? We watched this thing and got two, count 'em two laughs. Not belly laughs, not guffaws, just mild chuckles. The rest was a harrowing, bewildering slide down into the depths of despair while trying to comfort children who were showing more and more signs of emotional distress. A waste of time and a waste of the talents involved.
It just plain sucks.
