Saw Inside Out this weekend.  Fantastic.  Agree with Master Qui-Gon above - another masterpiece.  Can't really say anything bad about it.  Voice Talent was about the best match-up casting I've seen from them yet.

Even the Lava short before the flick was awesome. :)

I saw it.  Didn't work for me.  I just didn't buy into the stakes, I think.  I'm not even sure.  The woman two seats over from me sobbing for the last third of the film suggested I was supposed to be feeling something, but I just didn't.

I don't think I want to take my kids to see any movie that is going to induce anyone to sob for 1/3 of it. We can get enough soul-crushing sadness out of regular life, thanks.

I don't think either of my girls were impacted that way.  They weren't blown away by it either.

But this woman, I'm talking body-shuddering sobs.

The kids and I saw it last saturday and really liked it. I think it's the best Pixar movie since Toy Story 3. The story was great and heart warming and the characters were really well designed and thought out. This movie is Pixar back at their A team again. Go see it!

We went on Friday with the kids and friends of the family with their kids... The other dad was saying the woman next to him was crying as well.  Maybe the women are recalling the loss their imaginary friend?

We saw this on Friday and loved it as well. Definitely up there with Pixar's best I think, at least for me. I thought the general premise was pretty clever, and liked the way they portrayed a lot of the memory/emotion stuff as well. Not sure why it would cause anyone to sob, but maybe she had some stuff going on in her life. It does have that bit of emotional punch, similar to other Pixar stuff, but nothing too extreme

Saw Inside Out today. Another Pixar masterpiece. Oozing creativity. Every kid will love it and every parent will love it for a whole separate set of reasons.

+1  Saw it with the family and it was pretty good.  A little complex for younger kids I think and I got bored with the dialogue at times, but its a solid story and good ending.  The scenes in the credits were actually some of the most fun.
