Inside Out

When a young girl is uprooted from her Minnesota home and moved to San Francisco when her father takes a new job her emotions, personified in their various manifestations, must traverse these new foreboding waters and, when Sadness runs out of control, must go to extremes to restore balance.  Inside Out is a high concept film geared towards kids, though it takes a higher, somewhat darker aim in its latter stages.The animation ranges from cheesy to exceptional and the voice work is equally hodgepodge, all resulting in a fine rebound for Pixar but not nearly the triumph it has been proclaimed to be.
