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've got a confession with this movie. This was one of my least favorite Pixar films for the longest time. The reason is because I first saw it on a broadcast on a cruise and I missed the beginning with the barracuda, so I never had context. I just watched it tonight and I like it more now, but it is still only okay to me. My main problem is that I can't stand Ellen DeGeneres!! I just don't like her in general.
