Review
FINDING NEMO has great humour, but it has terrific character development and a story-line for an underwater feature like NEMO. The movie's voice acting was mostly done by well-known Australian actors such as Barry Humphries aka Dame Edna Everage, the now late Bill Hunter, Eric Bana and Geoffrey Rush. One thing I forgot to praise is Ellen DeGeneres' hilariously vocal performance as the forgetful blue tang known as Dory. FINDING NEMO is truly a near-breathtaking but great CGI film that is likely PIXAR's finest for young children and animation loving movie-goers.

Oh, did I forgot to mention that FINDING NEMO is now re-released on 3D which should be good for those who have or have not watched the 2D classic that they have enjoyed.

Star rating: (4/5) Good Movie
