[reciting] "I am a nice shark, not a mindless eating machine. If I am
to change this image, I must first change myself. Fish are friends,

Walt Disney Pictures, Rated G, 100 minutes

Directed By: Andrew Stanton & Lee Unkrich

effort to rescue his son Nemo. Their journey takes them through

to escape his glass prison.

Fact: Dory was specifically written for Ellen DeGeneres.

and great characters. Finding Nemo was a Disney film that really
united child and adult audiences leaving both satisfied and

      I was really how surprised how much I liked it. I initially took my son to a movie he could see and I ended up liking it more than him.
