Some of you wanted to get my “review” of Inside Out, which I saw with my beloved family this afternoon. In short, I thought it was terrific. This was no surprise, since I tend to like Pixar films anyway (Cars notwithstanding) and since I already had seen that, of all the Pixar films, this new one is pretty much the highest-rated.
