July 18, 2016
The sluggish pace and wayward plot are reminiscent of one of Disney's many, many home-entertainment sequels.

Intermittently cute and nothing more.

Pixar rarely fails at short films but with this film it seems that creativity is running out. [Full review in Spanish]
June 21, 2016
The detailed reproduction of underwater life is there before the eyes, but it constantly competes with the assault on the ears from talkative and neurotic sea creatures that have clearly spent too much time in human company.
June 16, 2016
Directors Andrew Stanton and Angus MacLane make it very clear what you are supposed to feel and when you are supposed to feel it. What they don't do is earn it.

The short-term memory-loss business very quickly becomes more wearing than funny. I can't say that its poignancy really worked on me, either, though I know it has on some.

Dory can fritter away your interest, and the prominence also exposes the limitations of DeGeneres as a voice actor: daffy blather is a cinch for the talk-show host, but she absolutely milks any attempt at pathos.

June 14, 2016
It's bright and colourful with a throng of ultra cute marine characters but the film is a pale imitation of its precursor Finding Nemo, never replicating its magic or touching our heartstrings.
June 10, 2016
Its heroine may suffer from short-term memory loss, but viewers with any memory at all will realize that Finding Dory falls rather short of its wondrous progenitor.
July 29, 2016
It's ironic that a film about a forgetful fish should be so forgettable.

June 17, 2016
Perhaps it's because I'm a soulless husk of a man and dead inside, but the Pixar formula just isn't cutting it for me anymore.
June 16, 2016
Finding Dory has its moments, but it's not one of Pixar's home runs.

Morbidity covers every scale of Finding Dory like fin rot.

July 28, 2016
When there are lulls in the action, these are filled too often by homilies and life lessons that demand no spelling out.
June 15, 2016
Finding Dory isn't so much a sequel to Finding Nemo as it is a Looney Tunes spin-off: Wilder, sillier, broader and instantly disposable.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
June 16, 2016
As the 13-year gap between "Nemo" and "Dory" indicates, this was not a concept that cried out to be made.
June 21, 2016
For anyone who is not a legally bound babysitter, Finding Dory offers nothing that will please a taste for finer humor, freer fun, or genuinely expressive filmmaking.
November 4, 2017
It's funny, beautifully animated and cute - it just forgot to add an emotional punch.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
September 19, 2017
The jokes and story do not hold a candle to their predecessor, but there are enough funny and moving moments to make this a pretty solid family flick.

Finding Dory will please everyone. No, it's not as sharp as Pixar is capable of being, but it is still fantastically funny, with just enough of a moral to give it a point.
