Chicago Sun-Times
This time the dad is the hero of the story, although in most animation it is almost always the mother.

You could trawl the seven seas and not net a funnier, more beautiful, and more original work of art and comedy than Finding Nemo.

The visuals pop, the fish emote and the ocean comes alive. That's in the first two minutes. After that, they do some really cool stuff.

The Hollywood Reporter
An exhilarating fish story in the perfectly cast comic adventure.

Chicago Tribune
Finding Nemo and its Pixar predecessors tap into the shared gene among the kids and adults that delights in imagination-engaging, eye-tickling and wit-filled storytelling. You connect to these sea creatures as you rarely do with humans in big-screen adventures. The result: a true sunken treasure.

Miami Herald
It's the filmmakers' refusal to sugarcoat their tale's darker subtexts that makes Finding Nemo such a resounding piece of storytelling.

Wall Street Journal
An undersea treasure all the same, and a prodigy of visual energy.

Leave it to a g-rated cartoon to give the live-action epics a lesson in action, fun and bracing originality.

The most gorgeous of all the Pixar films - which include "Toy Story" 1 and 2, "A Bug's Life" and "Monsters, Inc." -Nemo treats family audiences to a sweet, resonant story and breathtaking visuals.

New York Daily News
This stirring children's movie about separation anxiety is swimming with comic references only adults will catch, thus greatly expanding the potential audience.

Philadelphia Inquirer
Though not as great as "Toy Story 2" and "Monsters, Inc.," Pixar movies that are the gold standard for family movies, Finding Nemo is visually entrancing.
