Finding Dory

Movie Review 

Disney's Finding Dory

 A truly wonderful film about the importance of love, friends and family. Don’t worry, no spoilers!

Dory is a loveable, blue tang fish who suffers from short-term memory loss.  The only thing she can remember is that she was separated from her parents when she was a child.  With help from her friends Marlin and Nemo, Dory embarks on an epic adventure to find them.  Their journey takes them to the Marine Life Institute, a conservatory that houses a diverse collection of ocean species.  There Dory meets new and old friends who may be able to help reunite her with her parents.


Disney Pixar had made another hit that the whole family will enjoy.  Baby Dory is what has everybody talking about it, and with good reason.  She’s absolutely adorable, a character you will immediately fall in love with!

Baby Dory - Finding Dory

The clown fish you know and love are there, and you get to meet a whole new gang of funny characters.  Some of the fantastic actors that lend their voices are, Ed O’Neil, Diane Keaton, Eugene Levy and Ty Burrell (Modern Family), just to name a few.  Of course Ellen DeGeneres has reprised her role as Dory and she delivers a flawless performance.

As usual, Pixar has created a movie that teach kids and their parents, important life lessons while still being entertaining.  Not only is Finding Dory nourishment for the soul, it is also a feast for the eyes.  It’s beautifully rendered, colourful and visually stunning.

This warm and touching movie will break your heart over and over again, then stitch it back together with comedy.  I am so glad I had the chance to watch it with my munchkin today.  Even at two, she knows a good movie when she sees one and I think I liked it even better than Finding Nemo.

    1. That’s awesome! I just love Pixar for that. I know Disney owns it now but they are staying true to what they do best. I’ve never really approved of Disney princesses, well at least not the original ones. They set women’s rights back to the 50’s 😉
