Lesson to be learn

Finding Nemo is a great movie! It starts out a little scary perhaps for the really little ones, but once it gets going, the personalities of each character each take over. The story of how fearful Nemo's father is of letting anything happen to him prevents Anything happening to Nemo, so he rebels, and get's separated from his father. The lesson of letting go is loud and clear. My kids absolutely love's this movie and its one of there top favorite.
In this film, the characters are quite anthropomorphic, but without detracting from their basic nature. The themes of accepting and trusting others against your gut feeling and many different types of "people" cooperating to attain a common goal are lessons everyone can take home. The destructions humans wreck on the ocean are so lightly touched on; most may not even pick up on it. I would have liked to see it expressed more strongly considering we need to open the eyes of younger generations, but then again, this isn't a documentary.
Between the basic plot, the underlying themes, the animation, and being able to empathize with the character's situations, this is one great movie package.

Finding Nemo is probably one of the best movies ever produced by Pixar and Walt Disney. It was a hit at the theaters, and also a hit on the DVD release. This two-disc set features the same movie as the original theatrical release, plus lots of extra features. There are extra scenes and deleted scenes, but these are mainly sketches and hence are not included as part of the regular movie. The movie itself is worth buying this set; its bright and flashy with cool visuals and special effects that make …

Inevitably, computer animated films will be compared against each other. I don't normally like doing that, but here a small bunch of films vie for the same market with the same qualities (technical excellence, anthropomorphic comedy and adult/kid crossover appeal) so it is a very easy thing to do.  On that basis, Nemo ranks well down the tables; behind Shrek, Monsters Inc and either instalment of Toy Story.No quibbles technically. Extraordinary. But then again, the films in this bracket …

As grandparents, my wife and I appreciate films such as this which really do offer "something for everyone," especially when our grandchildren urge us to see it with them again and again and again and again....The same is true of Antz, A Bug's Life, Shrek, Toy Story and Toy Story 2, and Monsters. All of these animated films offer an interesting story line and memorable characters, to be sure, but they also offer wholesome humor on several different levels of sophistication, humor which thus delights …

"Finding Nemo" is an enjoyable film to watch. With characters like "Bruce" and "Dory," this story is sure to hold the attention of any young child. My two and one-half year old loves it, and not a day goes by when she wants to watch the "fish" show.   Like other Pixar movies, this story features great animation, although I noticed a couple of frames in the DVD looked rather "digitized" compared to others. The story isn't too violent, is geared towards younger audiences and has a few laughs …

Pixar does it again! What sets their previous efforts apart from other computer animated films has been their equal emphasis between aesthetic quality and a quality story. And again they succeed on both counts.It's a multilayered set of themes that make this story so effective. There is the basic umbrella of a parent frantically trying to regain his son, while working against his own fears. Meanwhile the son strives to master his own potential and an independence thrust on him by his own rash action. …

About this movie

Wiki

A delightful undersea world unfolds in Pixar's animated adventureFinding Nemo. When his son Nemo is captured by a scuba-diver, a nervous-nellie clownfish named Marlin (voiced by Albert Brooks) sets off into the vast--and astonishingly detailed--ocean to find him. Along the way he hooks up with a scatterbrained blue tang fish named Dory (Ellen DeGeneres), who's both helpful and a hindrance, sometimes at the same time. Faced with sharks, deep-sea anglers, fields of poisonous jellyfish, sea turtles, pelicans, and much more, Marlin rises above his neuroses in this wonderfully funny and nonstop thrill ride--rarely does more than 10 minutes pass without a sequence destined to become a theme park attraction. Pixar continues its run of impeccable artistic and economic success (their movies includeToy Story,A Bug's Life,Toy Story 2, andMonsters, Inc). Also featuring the voices of Willem Dafoe, Geoffrey Rush, and Allison Janney.--Bret Fetzer
