Storyline

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 Pixar

Trivia

The scene with the two subconscious guards arguing about the hat is a reference to the absurdist play Waiting For Godot. As a further nod to the absurdist nature of the scene, the guard Dave is played by Frank Oz, while the guard Frank is played by Dave Goelz (reversing the names.) Both these actors previously worked together for various Muppets Related Stuff. See more »

Goofs

During dream production, when Riley is dreaming that her teeth are are falling out, a production worker is dropping "teeth" in front of the camera. Since the camera is supposed to show Riley's point of view the falling teeth shouldn't be seen by the camera. See more »

Quotes

Joy: Do you ever look at someone and wonder, "What is going on inside their head?" Well, I know. Well, um, I know Riley' head.

Nasty movie, not for kids...or anyone with a sense of happiness
26 July 2015 | by See all my reviews

Do not take kids - or anyone to see this. What you will witness is the emotional breakdown of a teenager. How is that the subject of a kids movie?

There is no fun. There is nothing positive. There is nothing to celebrate about this movie. Do not waste your time or money.

Revisit Monster's Inc, and have fun together at a movie.

Listen, if a teacher gave your 5 or 6 year old a lesson on how to be a moody, unengaged,depressed teenager, then you'd be after their neck. But, stick a Disney sign on it, and it's entertainment? Are you kidding me?

This is sick stuff people, dreamed up by sick people!

STAY AWAY FROM IT!!!
