The premise of Finding Nemo is, like many good stories, quite simple: an over-protective, worrying father searching for his prodigal son. In this case, the father happens to be a fish, a clown fish to be precise. As voiced by Albert Brooks, Marlin the clown fish is both a sad and sympathetic figure.
When his son, Nemo, is snatched by a scuba diver, Marlin ventures off into the great unknown to rescue him. Along the way he is joined by a blue tang named Dory. While trying to be helpful, Dory is seriously impeded by her lack of short term memory (we’re talking Memento for the under 10s here).
Together, this unlikely duo brave the perils of the open sea, including sharks, whales and jellyfish. On the verge of despair, Marlin and Dory are picked up by some sea turtles led by Crush, the quintessential surf dude, who points them in the right direction. Through these adventures, Marlin learns a parent’s hardest lesson: how to let go of your kids and let them grow up.
Finding Nemo has a great deal of heart and is told with much humour. Thankfully, the filmmakers show some respect for their audience, both kids and adults, treating us with a measure of intelligence rarely found in Hollywood ‘family’ fare. All of which makes for a very satisfying movie. This is one you’ll watch again and again. Years from now, you’ll put it on for the grandkids and still realize how good it is; a timeless classic.

I am a big fan of this movie, and in 3d is so different.
Even my husband has took the time to sit down and watch it.

This film is a must see for kids of all ages (from 2-82). The graphics are amazing but are more for the kids then theres the great comedy for us adults. You will be guaranteed a chuckle. The film starts with Nemos mum and siblings dying and this results in Marlin (Nemos dad) to be a bit over protective. So the adventure begins with Nemo starting school. Nemo is then captured by a scuba diver. Marlin then sets out to search for his missing son and meets many other creatures on his journey (e.g. Sharks, Jelly fish, Turtles and Whales). Marlin also meets an interesting fish that brings the humour her name is Dory. With her having a short term memory you can tell she's going to be fun. But im not going to tell you any more but only that this is a definate one for your collection!

Finding Nemo is, quite simply, brilliant. Computer animation has come on in leaps and bounds since the days of Toy Story (1995) and Finding Nemo stunningly attests to this. From the vibrantly coloured and gently undulating coral on the reef, to the murky depths of Sydney harbour, to the clever use of reflection and refraction off the fish tank, this is a film in which the constantly changing scenery is a large part of its attraction. The original and well-judged score enhances the viewer's sense of wonder and their empathy with the characters.
But computer wizardry alone cannot create a great film. Finding Nemo is also blessed with an action-packed story and lots of laughs (largely courtesy of Dory - a well-meaning blue tang fish with short-term memory loss). Nemo is a young clown fish, eager to test his boundaries, who is caught by a diver and taken to an aquarium in Sydney. Whilst there, he makes friends with a motley collection of aquatic creatures who help him plot his escape. Meanwhile, his over-protective father, Marlin, begins a frantic quest to find his son. Along the way he is helped and hindered by three new-age sharks, some bodacious-dude turtles, a whale, and a monstrous angler fish (amongst others).
And yes, the ending may be a little mushy, but after such an epic adventure, the viewer will find the sentimentality relatively easy to stomach. Indeed, the character development is surprisingly deep for a children's movie, and it's a nice change to have not every character being entirely good or bad. Parents in the audience will certainly identify with Marlin's dilemma of wanting to protect his child, and yet coming to realise that the time comes when one has to let go a little.

This film is now available from Amazon.com for about £22 including economy postage. It took about two weeks to get to me, you can get it faster if you're prepared to pay.
For that you get the five disc special edition set including the 3D blu ray, the regular blu ray, a blu ray of extras, the dvd and a digital copy.
The disc is region free so its safe to buy, I watched it last night with no problems
Best of all it looks fantastic! If ever an animated feature was perfect for 3D this is it.
Bearing in mind that there is still no release date for the 2D blu ray in the UK this is a very worthwhile and reasonably priced addition to your collection.

This review is for anyone wondering whether it is worth getting the 3D Blu-ray version. Maybe you already have it in DVD (or even Blu-ray) and have just bought a 3D TV and wonder if it is good enough to justify the expense. Well all I can say is Yes, yes & yes again! Just watched it myself on my LG 3D TV and was blown away by the quality. To be honest I was prepared for a mediocre 3D effect given it's a post release conversion. But it's amazing, the depth is terrific and scenes like the coral reef, jellyfish swarm and in the tank are on a whole new level. Although there are no 'out of TV' front projections this does not detract from the overall enjoyment. It's been a few years since the last time I watched it in 2D and it was like watching it for the first time!

Fish doing en-masse impressions, an Amnesiac Blue Tang, Sharks who prefer a different menu, all part of a great big picture that makes this film great! The visuals are awesome. Extended undersea sequences make this a joy to watch. The characters are numerous, lovable and very well played by the cast. Part of the fun is putting faces to voices! As per most other Disney films, there are sad, touching moments, right alongside belly laughs.
Very highly recommended to anyone from 2 to 90, or breathing. It Rocks! Go see it.

Ah finding nemo! This is set in aussie, great holiday place! In the great barrier reef, which, as i've been there, has to be the most beatiful place on earth!

This movie is a true gem, it has funny bits, sad bits, scary bits, and sharks!

If you hadn't guessed, its about a fish called nemo, and his overprotective father, who makes his son annoyed, so he swims off on his own... well i can't tell you more, cause that would spoil the film!

watch out for the dentist...!!
