After young Riley is uprooted from her Midwest life and moved to San Francisco, her emotions - Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness - conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house, and school.
There was a major public push to get this film nominated for the Academy Award for Best Picture. Film critic Richard Roeper even said "Inside Out is a bold, gorgeous, sweet, funny, sometimes heartbreakingly sad, candy-colored adventure that deserves an Academy Award nomination for best picture." When it didn't get a Best Picture nomination, it was widely considered a snub for the category.
Do you ever look at someone and wonder, "What is going on inside their head?" Well, I know. Well, I know Riley's head.
In the opening scene, the newborn Riley sees her parents in full-color. Human infants are born color blind. The eyes' rods and cones (ergo, the ability to see color) don't fully form until about six months.
The movie's title appears during the scene where the Andersens are driving to San Fransisco, just as they are exiting the tunnel; giving a subtle reference to "Inside Out".
Riley hating broccoli was changed to peppers in the Japanese version.
