This is what happens when your car breaks down on a Sunday morning and you have nothing else to do…
There are 3.7 trillion fish in the ocean, they're looking for one.
A tale which follows the comedic and eventful journeys of two fish, the fretful Marlin and his young son Nemo, who are separated from each other in the Great Barrier Reef when Nemo is unexpectedly taken from his home and thrust into a fish tank in a dentist's office overlooking Sydney Harbor. Buoyed by the companionship of a friendly but forgetful fish named Dory, the overly cautious Marlin embarks on a dangerous trek and finds himself the unlikely hero of an epic journey to rescue his son.
So this basically was remade into Taken, right?
Marking the biggest leap for Pixar Animation Studios since their groundbreaking debut with Toy Story in 1995, Finding Nemo brings a whole new level of maturity in Pixar's method of storytelling, a new surge in its humour, creativity & imagination, and another elevation in its already unparalleled animation to succeed not only as one of the best films of its genre but is also exceptional enough to be regarded as one of the greatest films of all time.
Finding Nemo tells the story of Marlin; a clownfish residing in the Great Barrier Reef who's very overprotective of his son, Nemo. When Nemo is captured by scuba divers & taken to Sydney, Marlin sets out on a journey throughout the ocean to find…

Much like A Bug’s Life, Pixar has once again utilised the medium of animation to take on a perspective that is far too difficult if taken on the live-action format; this time straying away from the usual perception of human children, and instead taking its familiar fundamentals and translate them to the middle of the ocean, where our protagonists are now a Clownfish and a Blue Tang fish, driven by the unfortunate tragedy of a stolen child.
“Wow” is the film’s opening dialogue and indeed it speaks concisely and accurately of the visual wonder that Pixar has provided unto us, another progressive step into the mastering of the technology, capturing a world that is unknown…
Dear Pixar people,
.......I love you.....
Hugs and kisses,
(Dirk is my dad. He made me watch this.)
If parenthood is this terrifying, then I'll just stick to being someone else's child forever, thanks.
Eh, I probably won't stand by that. I'm too eager to show my future children this film one day and watch their reactions to every moment I loved, every part that scared the kid in me, every hilarious dialogue.
Long live Pixar.
I'm H2O intolerant.
Andrew Stanton's Finding Nemo holds a special place in my heart that can't be filled with any other film. Not only was it the first film I saw in theaters, but it was also the first film we got on DVD. I also believe this film has the absolute best use of audio of all the Pixar films, utilizing THX's sound technology to its fullest extent, making for one of the most visceral experiences I can remember. Of course, everything is going to sound and look better in the theater, but at twelve years old, this classic still rings as clear as it did when I first saw it.
Marlin goes down in my book as one…
It's hard out here for a fish.
Funnier than I remember as a kid.
My kid has been into this lately so it's been on a lot in the house. After weeks of watching I still haven't gotten tired of it. I think that says a lot to the quality of the film. It's a perfect children's movie with enough fun for adults. What a great story of letting your kids be adventurous and not scared. And a great story for children to listed to your parents.
I really can't find a fault in this movie.
Rewatch of a film I saw 13 years ago and it's still an exhilarating and emotional rollercoaster. Has that classic quality of "entertainment for the kids and the grown ups" that is so characteristic for Pixar. Still a great film and we can only hope that Finding Dory will live up to it's predecessor in a short month.
A perfect use for a "fish out of water" story with gorgeous animation, memorable characters, fantastic humor and exciting action. One of Disney/Pixar's best films and one of my favorites. 10/10
I watched this 4 or 5 times before I realized Dory was a girl
Classic Pixar! Fun film! Looking forward to the sequel!
A complete masterpiece and the greatest animated movie ever made. The film masterfully works on so many levels.
1)A beautiful and meticulous representation of an underwater world. The amount of detail within every setting is striking.
2)A laugh out loud, witty comedy.
3)An emotional story that hits every beat perfectly.
4)A story that shows exactly what it means to a parent and child. The relationship between Marlin and Nemo can be viewed from both perspectives from adults and kids alike. It truly epitomizes the excellence of Pixar as a whole.
This is so much more than just a fun, animated, kid’s movie. It is true cinematic excellence.
A great story with beautiful animation that builds to a wonderful finish. Among Pixar's best films.
