Goofs

The "angler fish" that Marlin and Dory encounter has several characteristics that are not found in deep-sea angler fish. Deep-sea angler fish do not have photophores (the "lights" along the side of the body that are visible when you finally see the whole fish). Also, all deep-sea angler fish have very small eyes, and the fish in the movie has very large eyes (much like a marine hatchet fish). Plus, angler fish are usually found at 1000+ meters, way too deep for Marlin and Dory to survive. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Marlin: Wow.
Coral: Mmm.
Marlin: Wow.
Coral: Mm-hmm.
Marlin: Wow.
Coral: Yes, Marlin. I... No, I see it. It's beautiful.
Marlin: So, Coral, when you said you wanted an ocean view, you didn't think you were going to get the whole ocean, did you? Huh?
[deep breath]
Marlin: Oh, yeah. A fish can breathe out here. Did your man deliver, or did he deliver?

Another Disney/Pixar Classic
22 January 2005 | by (England) – See all my reviews

Those guys and girls at Disney/Pixar have done it again, they've created the perfect underwater world, full of fascinating Disney characters.

A truly enchanting story of a father (Marlon) who loses his son (Nemo), and with help of his new found friend (Dory) ventures out into the ocean to try to find him. On this epic voyage he gets to battle sharks, surf with some turtle dudes, dice with some jellyfish and survive an encounter in a whales stomach.

All the characters are vibrant with Disney charm, but my favourite is Dory, the comic relief, probably one of the funniest Disney characters ever written and superbly voiced by Ellen DeGeneres, pure genius.

All in all this is another success for Disney and Pixar, It brings out the child in all of us.

Solid family fun 8/10
