When Dory, the forgetful blue tang (Ellen DeGeneres), suddenly remembers she has a family who may be looking for her, she, Marlin (Albert Brooks) and Nemo (Hayden Rolence) take off on a life-changing quest to find them…with help from Hank, a cantankerous octopus; Bailey, a beluga whale who’s convinced his biological sonar skills are on the fritz; and Destiny, a nearsighted whale shark! Dive into the movie overflowing with unforgettable characters, dazzling animation and gallons of fun!
Finding Dory was a cute movie. I want to be clear this movie is not so much about Nemo and Marlin, but it’s all about Dory. It’s kind of an origin story, but more so focusing on how to find her family.
The animation is spot on amazing, I loved all the characters and omgosh Dory’s pipe-pal Destiny is so cute! There was good pacing, but thirty minutes to the end I got a little restless, the movie is 97 minutes long (1 hr 37 mins).
Over all I think its a great kids movie, there are a few moments that are spooky or sad but nothing so intense as Big Hero 6. Rotten Tomatoes has a rating that says 85% liked the show, with a 94% rating overall. I rated it 4 out of 5 gems (stars), good pace, fun adventure story, interesting new characters and cuteness overall!
