Finding Dory is, hands down, one of Pixar's best pieces of work to date and is nothing short of perfection.
March 23, 2017
The film's number of memorable new characters are enough to mask its story problems
February 23, 2017
A simple and moving story that transcends its animated aquatic world to say a lot about human feelings. [Full review in Spanish]
February 16, 2017
Finding Dory, perhaps in a similar vein to this year's forward-thinking Zootopia, ventures into some interesting social territories where Finding Nemo did not.
January 19, 2017
This film seems funny enough and exciting enough to entertain kids, but there really isn't much constructive in the story itself, which is pretty close to nonsensical.

Bright, fun and moving, this film is a solid, though not exactly ground-breaking, addition to the Pixar line-up.

For all its attempts to expand the original's ensemble and embellish its themes, Dory is cod in batter beside Nemo's smoked salmon. But still tasty.

The aquatic world of Dory doesn't teem with as many fascinating details as the mammalian world of spring's Zootopia, but it has its share of clever visual gags, many of them occasioned by Hank's camouflaging abilities.

This fishy tale may not be as lively as its popular predecessor. Still, Finding Dory strikes gold anew for a new generation of family filmgoers.

What makes Pixar great is the way it always casts shadows behind its polychrome colors, contrasting a child's conflicted urges for safety and adventure.
December 31, 2016
In general, Finding Dory doesn't reach the heights of the original, but it delivers an hour and 40 minutes of solid entertainment.

Stanton takes aim at the heart instead of the head. This is another touching fable about friendship, self-reliance and courage.

December 30, 2016
This sequel is certainly more than just a shameless cash-in on one of Pixar's finest films, but it's also not quite up to the studio's highest standards.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
December 26, 2016
A reversal of 'Finding Nemo' that -- like its predecessor -- revels in the imaginative opportunities afforded by its floaty, almost surreal underwater environment, the movie has charm and warmth but lacks distinction.

Kids around six and eight will likely love the offerings here but adults might find their patience tested by this brilliantly rendered but rather wet serving of Disney franchise extender.

A cute follow-up to Finding Nemo.

...look closer. Even Pixar's sages seem a bit bored with their normal M.O. ...but only Sigourney Weaver knows for sure.

December 4, 2016
The best sequel made by Pixar Animation Studios without the word "toy" in the title. This is a relief, but not all that much of an achievement.

... a Pixar picture with all the care and love and storytelling magic that the studio brings to every project. Which makes this adventure a joyous reunion and a lovely odyssey.
November 17, 2016
Finding Dory is a good movie, meaning that Pixar has a batting average of four for five when it comes to sequels.
