You know how you see previews for a movie and it stays on the list for a "must see?"  I don't know about your house, but at ours, the list gets rather lengthy if the kiddo is in charge of it.  We saw the preview for Inside Out at some point and it hit his radar as one to watch, so then every time it was on TV, he had to mention again and again and again...  
To say I was happy to get an invite to an advance screening would be an understatement.  We were THRILLED.
  Not only to see the movie, but also so that I would not have to be reminded over and over and over again that he really, REALLY wanted to go see it. 

We headed to see the movie and after popcorn and a drink, we were ready to go. 
Have you seen the previews for Inside Out yet?  Let me give you the synopsis:
Do you ever look at someone and wonder what is going on inside their head? Disney•Pixar’s original new film “Inside Out” ventures inside the mind to find out
Based in Headquarters, the control center inside 11-year-old Riley’s mind, five Emotions are hard at work, led by lighthearted optimist Joy (voice of Amy Poehler), whose mission is to make sure Riley stays happy. Fear (voice of Bill Hader) heads up safety, Anger (voice of Lewis Black) ensures all is fair and Disgust (voice of Mindy Kaling) prevents Riley from getting poisoned—both physically and socially. Sadness (voice of Phyllis Smith) isn’t exactly sure what her role is, and frankly, neither is anyone else.   
When Riley's family relocates to a scary new city, the Emotions are on the job, eager to help guide her through the difficult transition. But when Joy and Sadness are inadvertently swept into the far reaches of Riley’s mind—taking some of her core memories with them—Fear, Anger and Disgust are left reluctantly in charge. Joy and Sadness must venture through unfamiliar places—Long Term Memory, Imagination Land, Abstract Thought and Dream Productions—in a desperate effort to get back to Headquarters, and Riley.
Directed by Academy Award® winner Pete Docter ("Monsters, Inc.", "Up"), produced by Jonas Rivera, p.g.a. ("Up") and featuring an original score by Michael Giacchino ("The Incredibles," "Ratatouille," "Up"),
 Disney•Pixar's  "Inside Out" opens in theaters on June 19, 2015. 
 
To say that this is a good movie does not give it justice. As I watched the movie, it sort of gave me, as the parent, a friendly reminder of all the thoughts and emotions that you deal with while growing up.  Yes, as adults, we have our fair share, but remember, as a child, we are still learning what all they mean and how to deal with them... Is it sadness or fear?  Are you angry? I have since learned that they thought about adding another emotion to the group, but ended up deciding against it.  I am glad that they didn't as it might have started to be a bit "too much."  The emotions involved are the basic ones and they had plenty of time to shine in their own light.  I did think it was neat that you had "headquarters" where all the emotions were (in your head) and it was cool to see them looking out at the different "islands" of emotions... Each seeming to be an equal distance from one another, not giving one more importance over the other...  There were islands such as "goofball island" and even "friendship island"  each holding lots of great memories!  It was a cute way to let kids see that they are not the only one dealing with all sorts of emotions at their age and having the vocabulary being basic was a great way to allow them to understand it better (in my opinion.)  Not only do they reach the kids through the movie, showing the emotions of the adults was hilarious!!!!  
I thought it was a good movie and yes, I will even say it is a bit emotional at times (especially if you are pregnant) , Broxton said it was a bit sad.  He did enjoy it, but as I said... he thought it was sad and had hoped it would be more silly throughout. 
If you are looking for a great family movie to watch soon, plan to go see this. It is not only a great movie to watch, it is a great conversation starter for you to have once you get home!
