Movie Info

Marlin (Albert Brooks), a clown fish, is overly cautious with his son, Nemo (Alexander Gould), who has a foreshortened fin. When Nemo swims too close to the surface to prove himself, he is caught by a diver, and horrified Marlin must set out to find him. A blue reef fish named Dory (Ellen DeGeneres) -- who has a really short memory -- joins Marlin and complicates the encounters with sharks, jellyfish, and a host of ocean dangers. Meanwhile, Nemo plots his escape from a dentist's fish tank.

Critic Reviews for Finding Nemo

Audience Reviews for Finding Nemo

    This is really where Pixar perfected what would become the "Pixar formula", and years later it holds up shockingly well. It's a simple story, almost like the Odyssey in reverse, but the characters are all so good and the emotions are all so solid it just stands up. You get a lead who's believably troubled but still likable, one of the best sidekicks in movie history, and a quest you can believe in with a consistently entertaining slew of obstacles that never go on long enough to get boring or stay so short you wish you had more. It's practically perfect. If I have any criticisms it's that the segment with the sharks goes on a bit too long and doesn't really matter in the end, but I'm really stretching their because it's still a good segment that everyone remembers. Other than that, I really can't criticize this movie.

    Instantly memorable and animation that still looks gorgeous to this day, Finding Nemo is arguably a masterpiece of animation - it's story compelling, it's characters iconic and it's both equally hilarious and touching, making even the coldest hearted person cry. Simply stellar.

    I have nothing but admiration when it comes to this movie. "Finding Nemo" was one of my personal favorites while growing up and it certainly stills holds up to this day. When we look at it today, it's still a wonderful tale about a dad who is trying to find his son who has been kidnapped. The cast is amazing. Albert Brooks gives a very personal performance; probably the best in his career. Alexander Gould is incredibly surprising and is probably one of the best child actors out there. Willem Dafoe's character is very mysterious and that totally helps when it comes to his development and his story. But the memorable performance is without a doubt Ellen DeGeneres and her incredibly lovable character of Dory. She is incredible and the fact that she is the main character in the sequel is probably the best that could possibly happen when it comes to trying to keep up with the original. This is not just a great animated movie, but is one of the best movies ever made.
