Nostalgia, baby Dory and Bailey and Destiny were the secret weapons in this long-awaited return to the ocean. Maybe it's not as thrilling as the original film, but it was lovely beyond words. Let's hope to see everyone back again for "Finding Marlin"!
Cuteness overload, from the giant-eyed baby Dory to Destiny, the whale shark. The story provides some background to the previous film, which brings a lot of nostalgic feelings, but I miss something. Finding Nemo had thriller, sharks, escaping from an aquarium, while Finding Dory feels a bit... like Dory, fun (but forgettable?).
Finding Dory is a much better film than Finding Nemo. Funnier, more emotional, better characters, bigger, grander setups, and a far more impacting theme. Takes a character who could've been insufferable to endure for ninety minutes and makes her a sympathetic and empowering force that commands every scene and makes you question why she wasn't the main focus before An ecstatic rebound for Pixar after The Good Dinosaur
When did animated films get so melancholic? The film often seems like it was written by the sadness character from 'Inside Out' as it charts all the lonely fishes (where did they all come from). As always with Pixar the animation is excellent and the mix of drama and comedy well timed but this entry pales to many of its predecessors especially the warmer 'Finding Nemo'. Ed O'Neill steals the show with Hank.
