Sisters’ Subversive Party Comedy Clicks!

The Nest

Sisters is one of the best crude-with-a-heart movies of the year – and the most subversive because the epic party being thrown isn’t through the efforts (and fantasies) of high school or college guys but a couple of middle-aged women.

It’s also great fun because its stars – Tina Fey and Amy Poehler – play against type (and, in fact play middle-aged versions of each other’s characters in 2008’s Baby Mama).

Inside Out Is Pixar at Its Best!

Disney•Pixar's "Inside Out" takes us to the most extraordinary location yet - inside the mind of Riley. Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions - Anger (voiced by Lewis Black), Disgust (voiced by Mindy Kaling), Joy (voiced by Amy Poehler), Fear (voiced by Bill Hader) and Sadness (voiced by Phyllis Smith). The emotions live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley's mind, where they help advise her through everyday life. Directed by Pete Docter and produced by Jonas Rivera, "Inside Out" is in theaters June 19, 2015.

After commercial hits like Cars, Cars 2, and Monsters University – which did not yield unwavering critical acclaim – it is wonderful to note that Inside Out is a multi-layered, exquisitely rendered film that ranks right up there with WALL-E and UP.

The idea for Inside Out is that we are looking at a year in the life of eleven-year old Riley (voiced by Kaitlyn Dias) as seen from inside her mind, where her emotions take on somewhat familiar forms and interact like any group of friends – with love but also  lots of ups and downs.
