Another fantastic family hit from Pixar

Finding Nemo

Finding Nemo

YOU MUST SEE THIS MOVIE.

There. Now that I've said that, I should tell you that this is NOT solely a childrens' movie, but will be enjoyed as much (if not more) by adults. The cleverness of Pixar will never cease to amaze me. Only they could take a concept like a full-length movie about fish and make it totally believable. This film succeeds n being very, very funny. Heck, I'm 16 and saw it in the theater with only my mother. The two of us were laughing hysterically throughout the entire thing!

There's alot of sadness and emotion in this movie and some absolutely terrific voice acting--the voice cast is top-notch. There are some touching moments and subtle messages to be heard by all, not just kids. I look forward with anticipation to the DVD release of this wonderful movie. The suspense never lets up; encounters with jellyfish, a whale, and a deep-sea lanturn fish make every moment exciting.

As we know, every Disney/Pixar film is associated with its own special "short." Well, this one is the best yet, and the short film sets you up for the great feelings you'll have while seeing "Finding Nemo." I won't give away the storyline, but it involves a cute snowman, a water globe, and some tropical souvenirs that completely ready one for the overwhelming tropical-ness of the feature film.

One thing I can't get over is how true-to-life these characters are. The attention to finding a unique species for each fish is incredible and adds a whole new, educational, dimension to the movie. There are some memorable characters in "Finding Nemo." First and foremost is Marlin, the lovable clownfish who is an overprotective father to his adventurous son, Nemo. Then there's Dory, the regal blue tang with the memory problem. She provides much of the comic relief but is also an immensely "real" character. Bruce is a mako shark who wants to get rid of the typical image of sharks as mindless eating machines. Crush is a 150-year-old sea turtle with a cool-surfer-dude attitude. Nigel is a helpful pelican. The whole thing takes place in the Great Barrier Reef off the coast of Australia.

And then there are the aquarium fish, who invite Nemo into their 'club' when he gets scooped from the sea. He goes through the initiation ceremony at Mt. Wannahockaloogee, complete with tiki statues and all. The animation is awesome. Their group includes Peach, the lookout starfish; Deb, a delusional fish who thinks her reflection is her sister; a French shrimp, a puffer fish, a yellow tang, and a royal gramma. They are led by Gill, a moorish idol who longs to return to the ocean.

This film is excellent; it deserves a sequel...

Overall this is one film that nobody should miss--parents, kids, or otherwise. I hope this review has convinced you to go get yourself a ticket to "Finding Nemo."

  1. I need to write a 200-250 word summary on the movie "Finding Nemo", that describes the various leadership qualities evident amongst the main character(s) as well as the lessons taught. I also need 10 questions that cannot have a yes or no response. My questions should require critical thingking in order to be answered. The questions must deal with teaching or reinforcing aspects of leadership and other critical life skills. If you could help with this it would be greatly appreciated.

  5. My government teacher said that if we could find a way to relate Finding Nemo to U.S. Government, then we could watch it. So please people, help me and my classmates out!! If you can think of any other fun movies (preferably a Disney or Pixar, something childish) that possibly relate to government, please let me know! Thanks so much!

  6. I am writing a paper about Finding Nemo and the different disabilities that are shown. My professor says that there are over 200. I have found some like physical deformities, OCD, germophobia, etc. Can anyone think of any other examples?

    This is for an archetypal analysis piece. I have to compare a classic work with a disney film. Ex: Hamlet and The Lion King. I would like to use Finding Nemo, but any other suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks! :)
