Inside Out gets five bears. This is so satisfying to finally type for only the second time. The bear-in-question is only in the movie for maybe five seconds, but that’s more Bear-Per-Frame than literally every other movie I’ve Bear Reviewed so far. Is it an ideal representation of bears in media? Not quite. The bear is wearing a T-shirt, but Riley’s emotions also acknowledge that a bear is a valid thing for a young girl to fear. I’m tempted to knock off a bear because while we see the dog and the cat’s inner emotions working, we don’t see the bear’s, but perhaps that is just because director Pete Doctor understands that a bear’s emotions are too complex for us humans to understand.
