From the Academy Award-winning creators of Toy Story and Monsters, Inc., its time to dive into Finding Nemo - a hilarious adventure where youll meet colourful characters that take you into the breathtaking underwater world of Australias Great Barrier Reef. Nemo, an adventurous young clownfish, is unexpectedly taken to a dentists office aquarium. Its up to Marlin, his worrisome father, and Dory, a friendly but forgetful regal blue tang fish, to make the epic journey to bring Nemo home. Their adventure leads them face-to-face with vegetarian sharks, surfer dude turtles, hypnotic jellyfish, hungry seagulls and more. Marlin discovers a bravery he never knew, but will he be able to find his son? Finding Nemos breakthrough computer animation takes you into a whole new world with this undersea adventure about family, courage and challenges.
A delightful undersea world unfolds in Pixar's animated adventure Finding Nemo. When his son Nemo is captured by a scuba diver, a nervous 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 a help 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 thrilling ride--rarely do more than 10 minutes pass without a sequence appearing that's destined to become a theme-park attraction. Pixar continues its run of impeccable artistic and economic successes (Toy Story, A Bug's Life, Monsters, Inc). Supporting voices here include Willem Dafoe, Geoffrey Rush and Allison Janney. --Bret Fetzer --This text refers to the DVD edition.

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.
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.
And so, with arguably Pixar's most popular film - Finding Nemo - celebrating a 10-year anniversary to boot, you would expect something special from the house of Mouse. The U.S. got a lavish 2-disc edition back before Christmas, with a host of special features. The U.K. edition creeps out 6 months later with little or no fanfare and is missing a few special features.
Gone are the days when Disney ported everything over from previous DVD releases - now we're just getting the semi-skimmed version of releases and it's just not on. Shame on you Disney!
The characters are all well thought out, the voices are perfect for each of the parts, its just a superb film. The one thing I love about Disney films is how they can be enjoyed by both children and adults.
A great film, well worth watching by all ages.
