Finding Nemo Review

Hop to

Pixar's Finding Nemo has
already broken box-office
records, and with a studio
pedigree that includes the Toy
Story films and Monsters, Inc. it is
bound to be a smash on DVD too.
Thankfully, this inevitable success is
well deserved.
After the death of his wife and all but
one of his spawn, clown fish Marlin
(Albert Brooks) is an overprotective
single father. When it comes to the
first day of school for his son Nemo
(Alexander Gould), Marlin ends up
embarrassing him in front of his new
classmates. In an act of rebellion,
Nemo is stolen away by divers and
Marlin is forced to forget about his
fears and work with the forgetful Dory
(Ellen DeGeneres) to rescue his son.
Compared to previous Pixar movies,
Finding Nemo seems like a regression
in storytelling terms: it is a simple
'quest' story with both the hunter and
the hunted learning something about
themselves along the way. However,
as with the studio's previous work, the
incidental characters and gags bring
the film to life. From Willem Dafoe's
escape-obsessed aquarium fish, to a
trio of sharks who are determined to
be nice to their fellow fish, Finding
Nemo is full of wonderful moments
that will stay with you long after the
credits roll.
