After beginning to get memories of her childhood, Dory convinces Marlin and Nemo to help her find her parents.

 

So… not the most original. Less like Finding Nemo than I expected but it’s still just another take on it. But… it seemed to lose some of its cuteness. The art was still cute but…

The characters pissed me off. I mean, you had Dory and her memory loss and Nemo with his tiny find and Marlin freaking out during most of it. But then you had a seal or whatever that was obviously mentally deficient, a bird that wasn’t all there, a blind whale, a whale with a head injury and an octopus that was missing a leg and obviously had ptsd. Which in and of itself I can deal with. But they seemed to just use all of it for comedic relief which got annoying real fast. And with all those characters being used for comedic relief, you didn’t have much time to actually need the relief.

Even scenes that were obviously supposed to tug on your heartstrings didn’t because it never let itself get serious for long enough to care what was happening.

The music was boring. It was all music you’ve heard a million times before in movies with similar scenes.

 

Well, watch it or don’t,  but I certainly don’t recommend it at all.
