Movie Review: Finding Nemo 3D

I don’t exactly worship Pixar, but “Finding Nemo” is truly a great film.

Now, Disney has trotted out a 3D version and that gives families an excuse to go see swell piece of animation on the big screen again.  Never mind I couldn’t really see any significant improvements from the 3D effects.

Okay, it’s a revenue thing.  Eventually, every blessed Disney film will get a 3D showing.  And, that kind of makes me seasick.

Anyway you may remember Nemo is the tiny clown fish with a defective fin.  His dad, voiced by Albert Brooks, is so concerned his little tadpole will be harmed, he never lets Nemo out of his sight.  This, of course, leads to resentment.  Nemo strikes out on his own, gets lost and then winds up in the aquarium of an Australian dentist.

The story introduces youngsters to the concept of death and rising above one’s disability.  It’s also a very entertaining tale that will NOT bore the adults.  Okay, score one for Pixar.  Grade: A
