[Finding Dory] injects heartfelt emotion and a thoughtful examination of the necessary links between family and identity into a film geared toward a younger audience.

Finding Dory is delightful, perfect waterworks for the beginning of summer for children and adults.

"Finding Dory" is about the self-preservation and gumption of a character with special needs throughout her life.

August 10, 2017
The central irony of Finding Dory is that Dory is a risk-taker trapped in a movie that, for all its likability, won't join her on whimsical leaps.

Who would have thought one of the deepest films ever made about learning disabilities would star a talking blue fish?

Finding Dory is also a movie with surprising emotional depth, one that's just as much about the power of active hope as it is about sight gags and cute critters.
June 2, 2017
Finding Dory could have been a disappointing sequel to one of Pixar's most beloved films, but instead has turned out to be more than a worthy successor, giving us the full tale on one of the best characters the studio ever created.
April 25, 2017
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.

January 3, 2017
Bright, fun and moving, this film is a solid, though not exactly ground-breaking, addition to the Pixar line-up.
January 1, 2017
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.

December 31, 2016
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
