Sea-ing is believing. After raising the quality of computer-generated animation with the Toy Story franchise, A Bug's Life and Monsters, Inc., the animation maestros at Pixar have outdone themselves. Forget about being a great kids movie--Finding Nemo is just a great movie. When a wet-behind-the-fins clown fish, Nemo (Alexander Gould), flexes his independence in the face of his overprotective dad, Marlin (Albert Brooks), he's captured and delivered into a dentist's aquarium.
Marlin and his new fishy pal Dory (Ellen DeGeneres, who gets all the best lines) go in search of the lost little guy. They travel across an ocean full of wild characters, as the writing embraces Brooks' silly neuroses and lets no fish joke get away. Stuffed to the gills with smart humor, crystal-clear animation and a touching story, Nemo is the catch of the summer.
