I saw the movie last night, and I absolutely loved it. It was so funny and clever, and extremely cute.
I loved that Riley is the only character to have male and female emotions in her head. Nice touch.
The whole world created made of Riley's thoughts and memories was just amazing. And Joy is such a precious character.
It was also really cool to have Sadness save the day near the end, every feeling is important in shaping personality. It was a much stronger message than just needing to be happy all the time and at all costs.
Thant running gag with the Gum song really cracked me up, as did Fear's reaction to Riley's nightmare.
Seeing the portal with the different colors of memory balls reminded me of an episode from "Fox's Peter Pan and the Pirates." I wonder if it inspired this bit?

I have gone to see the movie twice, and both times I cried and laughed really hard. Its such an 'emotional' movie! The short before the movie had me in tears as well. I told my family we are definitely buying it on DVD when it comes out of theaters. I hear that included with the DVD there's going to be another little short called 'Riley's First Date'. I can't wait to see what happens. Hahahaha!

^ I finally got the chance to see this yesterday on DVD. It was super cute, and I enjoyed it very much.
I too liked that Riley was the only one with both female and male emotions inside her head. Also, that these emotions were a combo of what she inherited from her parents. That was hilarious.
There was a lot of psychology in this movie, with core memories, how they are organized and how each emotion affects them. I like the nod to depression, i.e. what happens when "Joy" is out of the control room and is desperately trying to get back. I like the visual gags for things like Train of Thought, which ceases to move when one is asleep.
Sadness saving the day was a nice touch, and I love how at the end it showed that all the emotions have to be in balance to have a healthy outlook on life.
I'm sorry that the short, Riley's First Date was not on the DVD, but I look forward to seeing it elsewhere.
Overall, another winner from Pixar and Disney.

This was a cute movie. I went to the drive in theater and saw this and minions. I was disappointed in the minion movie but this was cute. I was super excited to see this movie however, I'll admit that I was a little disappointed in it because I was way too hyped.
But I need to see it again. I loved the psychology behind it. I loved all the emotions. I was partial with Sadness because I remember feeling just how she had felt at certain times. I'd highly recommend this movie to anyone of all ages.
