FINDING NEMO (Theatrical Release USA 2003)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.7|5.0 Starsìììì 

Finding Nemo—
one of the best Pixar films since 1995’s Toy Story—runs on an outstandingly loving, thoughtful, and imaginative script with some of the best voicing in the entertainment industry. The animation is fabulous even by 2017 standards. The script is flawless. This movie nearly made a billion dollars box office and earns its money in every way.

Marlin (voice of Albert Brooks), a clownfish, finds his entire family wiped out by a barracuda except for one single egg. When the egg hatches, he names the baby fish Nemo (voice of Alexander Gould). Nemo’s fin is slightly damaged due to the earlier barracuda attack and Marlin becomes overly protective of his young son. When Nemo disappears after an encounter with scuba divers, Marlin goes on a long search to find his son.
