A really fun and sweet movie, and of course with so many great quotable lines. Visiting the aquarium was forever changed 'look mom/dad it's Nemo!!!'

One of the first Disney Pixar movies to come out not to long after Toy Story. This movie is awesome for all ages, it has stuff for adults and children. Finding Nemo is among Disney's animated greats.

Finding Nemo is a wonderful and heart-touching movie about a little fish struggling to find his own way, and his father's journey to make sure his son gets home safe. Nemo is a young clown fish that grew up without his mother, and feels suffocated by his father's over-protectiveness. In an act of rebellion, he goes to touch a Butt, but he never comes back, and his father begins the journey of a lifetime to bring him back home.

Sarah 1991: Couldn't agree more! My mom (and grandmom) always said "If you damage it, you fix it or replace it!" Just common courtesy!

One of the most popular Disney and Pixar films to date, “Finding Nemo” follows the story of a young clownfish who has gotten lost, his father, Marlin, who is searching for him, and a fish Marlin befriends during his search, Dory. Nemo gets lost after he ignores his father’s warning about how dangerous the sea is. Together, Marlin and Dory attempt to find Nemo who has been captured by fishers. Nemo meets other animals after he is abducted and placed in a dentists’ fish tank. They try to plan an escape back to the harbor from which they came. A brilliantly colourful, adventurous film that is still beloved to many children and adults alike.
Rating: 4.5/5

Finding Nemo is a wonderful tale of adventure about a clownfish named Nemo and the struggles his father goes through to find him and bring him home. Finding Nemo is full of comedy and heartwarming moments. This was an amazing movie to watch when I was a kid, and even now after rewatching it, I still enjoy it. This movie is definitely worth watching and I think this is a film for all ages and definitely a family film. I would rate Finding Nemo 4.5/5.

Finding Nemo combines meaning and fun in this classic story of young, spirited Nemo and his worrisome father Marlin. Nemo is the sole son of Marlin after a shark attack killed his wife and all of the eggs she laid except one; Nemo, and he is all we need to love clownfish and this story. Constantly afraid of losing his only son after his experience with loss, Marlin is overprotective and worried for the first day of school when Nemo sets off quickly in excitement; and his eagerness takes a painful turn when a scuba diver captures him and takes him to a dentist office aquarium. Nemo awakens afraid and unsure, while his father sets out alongside spunky and hilarious Dory to find his son and return him home. A truly heartwarming journey and story of the helplessness of animals, and finding your true home. The characters are balanced with a precision that never has you feeling bored or silly, and I highly recommend this movie for all ages! Rating 5/5

Nemo: What's that?

Tad: I know what that is. Sandy Plankton saw one. He called it... uh... he said it was called a "butt".

Pearl: That's a pretty big butt.

[swims out a little]

Sheldon: Oh, look at me... I'm gonna touch the butt.

Life along the Great Barrier Reef is full of dangers when you are a tiny clown fish. And for Marlin, a single parent determined to protect his only son Nemo, there are constant fears and anxieties. When, on his first day of school, Nemo defies his father and swims off alone to investigate a boat, he is suddenly scooped up by a diver as Marlin helplessly watches. Marlin turns desperate as he frantically swims off in search for his son. As he passes a school of fish he bumps into Dory, an agreeable blue tang with severe short-term memory loss, who offers to help. Together this aquatic odd couple set out on an impossible mission, finding themselves in troubled waters and contending with such hazards as sharks, deadly angler fishes and a forest of jellyfish. Meanwhile, in a dentist's office overlooking Sydney Harbor, Nemo has landed in a fish tank that is home to a colorful group of characters who want to initiate him into their gang. When word of Marlin and Dory's ocean adventures gets back to Nemo, he is so thrilled to learn of his father's search for him that he becomes motivated to move forward with a daring escape plan of his own.
