Joe Morgenstern at the Wall Street Journal, gave it a great 100 score, saying: ” The level of invention is so high, and the density of detail is so great, that it’s impossible to absorb everything in a single viewing.”
Matt Zoller Seitz from RogerEbert.com, gave it a 100 score too. He said: “The best parts of it feel truly new, even as they channel previous animated classics (including the works of Hayao Miyazaki) and explore situations and feelings that everyone has experienced to some degree.”
Ann Hornaday over at the Washington Post, gave it a 100 grade. She said: “This is that rare movie that transcends its role as pure entertainment to become something genuinely cathartic, even therapeutic, giving children a symbolic language with which to manage their unruliest emotions.”
A.O. Scott from The New York Times, gave it a 100, saying: “Inside Out is an absolute delight — funny and charming, fast-moving and full of surprises. It is also a defense of sorrow, an argument for the necessity of melancholy dressed in the bright colors of entertainment.”
Kenneth Turan from the Los Angeles Times, gave it a 100 score. He said: “Inside Out manages to be honest and unafraid but never cheaply sentimental where emotion is concerned, evoking a largeness of spirit whose ability to be moving sneaks up and takes us by surprise.”
Peter Travers from Rolling Stone, gave it a 100 grade, saying: “The idea has been tried — remember TV’s “Herman’s Head”? — but never with the artful brilliance of filmmaker Pete Docter (Up; Monsters, Inc.).”
Lou Lumenick from the New York Post, gave it a 100 score. He stated: “A hilarious and touching animated masterpiece that takes a gloriously imaginative, sometimes scary leap into the mind of a girl on the cusp of adolescence.”
Joe Neumaier at the New York Daily News, gave it a 100 grade, claiming: ” Inside Out is the year’s best film so far. After you see it, you’ll say that’s a no-brainer.”
Chris Nashawaty at Entertainment Weekly, gave it a 100 score, saying: “There’s enough slapstick and silliness to keep kids entertained…. But the film also has a bittersweet streak about the loss of innocence and the fleetingness of childhood.”
