What We Think-
What’s not to love about Finding Nemo? Finding Nemo is one of my family’s favorite Disney movies. It tells the tale of what happens when a clownfish, Nemo, gets scooped up by a diver when he is rebelling against his father and showing off for his friends. His father, Marlin (Albert Brooks), goes to great lengths to find his son. Along the way in the Great Barrier Reef Marlin meets lots of new friends, including Crush the 150 year old sea turtle, and faces lots of challenges from sharks to jellyfish. My favorite character in this film is Dory, voiced by none-other than Ellen DeGeneres. She’s not the brightest fish, but her happiness is contagious.
While Marlin is trying to find Nemo, Nemo gets put into a fish tank at a dentist’s office where he meets lots of new friends including a starfish, a puffer fish, and a shrimp. His new friends work to get their tank dirty so the dentist will have to take them all out of the tank to clean it. That will be Nemo’s chance to escape. Will Nemo escape? Will Marlin find Nemo? I’m sure most of you have already seen this classic story, but I won’t tell then ending in case you have been living in a cave since 2003. 😉
Finding Nemo is a great family movie for every age. It’s one of the few movies that I don’t mind watching over and over again. If you have a 3D Blu-Ray player, be sure to get the 3D version that has now been released so you can really feel like you are underwater with Nemo, Marlin, and the rest of the ocean gang. Remember- Just Keep Swimming, Just Keep Swimming!
