The water's fine!
Finding Nemo — the newest offering from Disney/Pixar — will be released on video and DVD November 4. As the name implies, the movie has a happy ending. Yes, young Nemo the clown fish is found and returns home safely. But why was he missing in the first place?
The trouble starts when Nemo's father, Marlin — shattered by a tragic family loss — becomes obsessively afraid for his son's safety. Nemo objects to his father's overprotectiveness, and he rebels — which lands him in a net and then in a fish tank in a dentist's office in Sydney, Australia.
This underwater wonder of a movie is a heartwarming computer-animated tale of the adventures of Marlin and Nemo in their quest to be reunited. Against a fabulous backdrop of aquatic life, this father-and-son story swims with humor and good-natured camaraderie, appealing to adults as well as children, although some scenes might be too scary for young children.
