Whether you are a fan of or a newbie to this fun film, adding 3-D makes it well worth a trip to the Cineplex.

Sad Beginning

Marlin, an overprotective clown fish, loses his only son Nemo when the little fish ventures from his reef home into open sea and is grabbed up by tropical fish collectors. Nemo ends up in a fish tank in a dentist’s office in Sydney, Australia.

Dad…and Dory to the Rescue

Desperate to find his son, Marlin is befriended by a well-meaning Blue Tang fish named Dory whose short term memory loss drives Marlin nuts but you see, Dory can read and it is she (voiced wonderfully by Ellen Degeneres) who figures out where Nemo was taken.

Dangers of the Deep

Dory and Marlin face many dangers including getting swallowed by a whale, stung by jellyfish, almost eaten by sharks and riding the current on the backs of migrating turtles. Meanwhile, Nemo and tank pals plan their own escape when they learn that the little clown fish is destined to be given to a fish-killing child as a present!

Bravery and Reunion

Nemo plays dead and manages to end up going down the drain and out into the ocean where, finally, dad and Dory find him!  Back home, Dad has learned that Nemo can handle himself in a crisis and he has to loosen up and let the boy live his life. In the tank, Nemo’s new friends manage escape and make it into the bay.

Wrapping Up

This delightful movie first came out in 2003 so if you are young enough that you didn’t see it in theaters, you’ll really enjoy it in the beautiful 3D Disney/Pixar has added. The water and everything in it has amazing color and depth. You could swear you are swimming with the fish! If you only saw the film in 2D or just on home video, I’d go see it again. The voice actors, especially Ellen Degeneres as Dory and Albert Brooks as Marlin are fabulous at bringing the characters to life. 

Also, in theaters before Finding Nemo 3D you get a wonderful Pixar short called PartySaurus Rex in which the T-Rex from “Toy Story” fights his label as a party pooper by becoming the life of the party for a bunch of bathtub toys. of course with some funny and disastrous results. This cute film makes a great combo for filmgoers.

Although one-parent families seem a theme at Disney, Finding Nemo is a great use of that reality as a dad, having lost his wife and other children, becomes just too overprotective and controlling of his remaining son’s life. Brave little Nemo is also mildly handicapped since one of his fins is smaller than the other. All kids, teens and families can relate to the themes. I just don’t see anything wrong with this one so 5 stars! Out in theaters Sept. 14th!
