    Well went to see this last night...

    I'll preface my comments by saying I thought Toy story 1 & 2 were superb... and that Monsters Inc was very good... but not quite up their with Toy Story....

    And with that out of the way....

    I thought Finding Nemo was terrible....

    The other films seemed to have an excellent mix of both adult and child orientated humour... and a good mix of both comedy and drama...

    Finding Nemo seemed to missing all of the above to me... no where near enough humour... (some very funny moments... just not enough)... a story that just didnt 'flow'... (no pun intended)... and characters I just didnt care about...

    I'm not that harsh on films usually... but I was bitterly disappointed with this one... and certainly wont be picking up the DVD....

    I'm sure you'll all disagree! :)

    Mark.

    I saw it saturday night in a THX cinema - I really shouldn't have bothered because the R1 DVD is out in a matter of weeks. Anyway, I liked it and i'll definately be buying the dvd. I am a junkie for computer generated eye candy - but I also like the humour and characters. The story was much the same as Toy Story 2 but with fish, not much to stretch the grey matter there. There's this tiny little fish with big eyes that is so cute and funny... watch it to the end of the end of the credits and you'll know what I mean.

    The picture quality at the cinema was quite poor - it was out of focus (the fault of the projectionist not adjusting it properly I expect) and it was quite grainy. It should look great on DVD being a digital transfer.

    I think Pixar has lost the plot completely. All advertising points the movie towards it being a family film. Cute fish etc. Instead of using fun and humour it continually scared the audiance. A large number of families left the theatre because the children were screaming their heads off. The poor 4/5 year old boy next to me cried his eyes out. After about 30 mins of continual dark scenes with snarling fish & sharks with huge sharp teeth the mother had to leave.

    It's fine to have a few scary bits in kiddies movies as part of the story. This used scare as the story.

    What the hell were they doing with the dentist? It's difficult to get children to go to the dentist already without their 'favourite films' scaring them.

    I would strongly recommend not taking any child under the age of 5. Even if they are 5-8 I would seriously think about it if they don't like going to the dentist.

    There wasn't any screaming kids when I saw it - it was late saturday night when i really should have been socialising :) I found the sharks nothing but funny but then i'm not 5 years old. I could imagine the dentist scenes scaring young children, and helping to put off viewers of all ages from going to the dentist!

    I went to see it last night and the whole cinema was full of giggling kids and guffawing adults. Good fun all round.

    Where you from Crustyloafer? Maybe it's a problem with sissy southern kids.

    Were there 3 to 5 year olds in the cinema?
