A nearly perfect film. The characters are incredibly well drawn out, however, it's one flaw, I fear, is the pacing. It is somewhat odd. I feel that it would have worked better as a single journey, meaning that they should have shown only Nemo's story or the father's. A film with both sides presented does not work as well as it could have.
I feel like "Finding Nemo" is to Pixar what "North by Northwest" is to Hitchcock: I wouldn't call it their greatest artistic statement, but it is the film that fully encompasses what they're all about. The animation is positively gorgeous, the humor is excellent, each character is distinct and memorable, and the stories unfold in a way that can resonate strongly with both children and adults.
One of Pixar's best films. Takes the simple premise of finding a lost children but has the dad search the child instead of the mother. Beautiful animation and great characters make this a nearly perfect film
There are very few big budgeted animated movies about colorful fishes in the sea and the threats there - it almost feel like a completely new universe to explore. Even Pixar will have a hard time to top this film filled with many fun moments and visual surprises.
