Finding Dory Review

Updated on June 27, 2016

Finding Dory Review

Finding Dory is the long awaited Disney/Pixar sequel to the Andrew Stanton and Lee Unkrick 2003 film, Finding Nemo(IMDB). For Finding Dory Andrew Stanton teamed up with Angus MacLane to bring the animated underwater experience to the big screen(IMDB). Both movies had the lovable young fish Nemo brought to life by Hayden Rolence, the protecting father of Nemo, Marlin, is voiced by Albert Brooks, and last, the main star of the newest film, Ellen DeGeneres voices the forgetful Dory.

Finding Dory is about the title character Dory whom has short term memory loss. She does remember a few things, but throughout the movie has flashbacks to her childhood. The film is about Dory realizing that she does not remember her parents, but understands that she does have parents because she came from somewhere. That is when the flashbacks begin, so she and her motley crew of Nemo and Marlin, go off in search of her parents.

This movie is very well done. Comedy wise it is impressive. The jokes are mainly aimed at the younger audience, but some are fairly witty and was not an insult to the viewers’ intelligence. It had some jokes that were hits as well as some classic slapstick that kept things interesting. The animation of this film was just immaculate. The way the world seemed huge at times, while it would make the main characters seem huge at others. There are multiple instances of the fish getting in fish tanks and then put into the ocean, which makes the world seem very small then incredibly huge. Also the contrast between underwater animation and out of water animation is gorgeous. The plot is very engaging as well. It is more than an adventure; it is about bringing people back together. The underlying message is about being able to overcome. In fact, that is a message that is apparent in both, Finding Nemo and Finding Dory. The first film was about overcoming a physical disability, and the second is the mental disability with Dory’s memory loss This makes the movie inspirational as well.

Although the movie was really good, it is not without its faults. There is also the instance with the sea lions where one seems to be different than the others and is bullied by the other two. It is done pretty tastefully, but could be seen as offensive. Overall the movie is great. It stays on topic and never tries too much while answering most of the questions the viewer would have about Dory’s past.

Grade: A+
