Our Review

Score: 4 out of 5

If you were a Finding Nemo fan that you will likely enjoy Finding Dory. The story is similar to that of Finding Nemo. Finding Dory picks up one year after the events in Finding Nemo. Dory remembers that she has a family...parents. Dory, Marlin and Nemo go on a quest in search for her family. We are greeted by an original character, Crush. The journey is not very eventful as most of the action takes place once they arrive in California. Dory finds a cranky octopus that helps her (voiced by Ed O'Neil). She also discovers a former friend "pipemate" who is a whale shark that is nearsighted. through Dory's recollections we learn more about her parents and life before she met Nemo and Marlin and a little about her journey in Finding Nemo. So, if you didn't see Finding Nemo, it won't be an issue. The young Dory is soooooo cute!!!

There were several scenes of Dory alone after she "lost" her parents. As a mom, it made me so sad to see young Dory alone without parents in the ocean. The kids will likely feel the same way. But, we are instantly taken back to her as the forgetful, funny adult fish we all laughed with.

This movie is aimed for the young ones and that made me happy. Lately, there have been a few animated films that contained a bit of scariness for the younger crowd. This is more uplifting and light-hearted than Finding Nemo even. The moral of the story is that one can embrace their perceived disadvantages and celebrate who they are. It really is a family-friendly film for all ages!

The scenes really came to life in 3D or IMAX 3D, Id' recommend spending the extra to see it in either of these versions.
