Twelve reviews in, the film holds a 100% "fresh" rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Variety, Vanity Fair and The Hollywood Reporter, to name a few, have all published reviews singing the film's praises. Some have also taken to Twitter to express their love of Pixar's latest:
INSIDE OUT is extremely clever, and all about emotional manipulation, so all bets are off on that front. Top tier Pixar. #Cannes2015— Jordan Hoffman (@jhoffman) May 18, 2015
INSIDE OUT is very sweet & clever. You can watch it on 2 levels: an enjoyable journey story or a funny look at psychology #Cannes2015— Alicia Malone (@aliciamalone) May 18, 2015
Inside Out (Docter) is Pixar's Spirited Away, and one of their very, very best. Review up soon #Cannes2015— Robbie Collin (@robbiereviews) May 18, 2015
So far, Inside Out is shaping up to be Pixar's biggest critical hit since Toy Story 3. Cars 2 was the studio's first film to not receive critical acclaim, and though Brave and Monsters University were both received positively, they were not the critical darlings that, say, Up, WALL-E, or the Toy Story films were. Inside Out, however, seems like it will silence those still claiming that Pixar has "lost its touch" and will no doubt become another cherished classic in the Pixar library.
Inside Out opens June 19; just one month from now!
