Finding Nemo (2003)

Finding Nemo (2003, USA) C-100m. *** D: Andrew Stanton, Lee Unkrich. Starring the voices of Albert Brooks, Ellen DeGeneres, Alexander Gould, Willem Dafoe, Geoffrey Rush, Elizabeth Perkins, Barry Humphries, Eric Bana, Bruce Spence, John Ratzenberger. Huge Disney/Picar hit about a clownfish (voiced by Brooks), whose only son gets caught by a scuba diver. The worried father embarks on an adventure trek across the Pacific to find his son and win back his trust, which he forfeited earlier. Hectic, overly aggressive, and endowed with too many unlikely plot twists, but has first-rate animation and a lot of funny scenes. Not the masterpiece it was labelled, but good fun. Oscar winner for Best Animated Feature.
