I Found Nemo—Again!

“When life gets you down, do you wanna know what you’ve gotta do? Just keep swimming!” And that’s exactly what Nemo has done. Nine years after the release of the movie, Nemo is still swimming, and looking better than ever.

On Sept. 14, following suit of movies, Disney Pixar re-released their blockbuster hit, Finding Nemo, in 3D.

In this undersea adventure, Nemo is trying to break free from his father, Marlin. After the tragic death of Nemo’s mother, his father has become overbearing and restricting in order to shield Nemo from the unknown ocean world. In his attempt to break away from his father’s protective grasp, Nemo is swept away from his family and friends, and taken as a pet by an undersea diver.

Devastated by Nemo’s capture, Marlin must find his way to Sydney, Australia, in order to save his son. On his way there, he encounters many sea creatures that help him along his journey.

Upon chasing the boat that has his son, Marlin collides with a regal blue tang fish named Dory, who suffers from severe short-term memory loss. Much to Marlin’s dismay, Dory tags along on his trip to Sydney, and causes them to get into quite a few sticky situations, including encounters with three sharks, a mine field and a dangerous anglerfish.

Despite Dory’s forgetfulness, she manages to help Marlin get to the East Australian current that takes them to the Sydney harbor, and all the while providing comic relief for the audience.

After being captured by the undersea diver, Nemo is placed in a fish tank in a local dentist office. His mission is to figure out how to get out of the tank and back into the ocean before he is given to the dentist’s niece, Darla, who is known to be a fish killer.

In the tank, Nemo becomes friends with the other fish who have been captured from the ocean. With the help of his new friends, Nemo makes his way back to the ocean, and is reconnected with his father.

With an all-star cast including Albert Brooks (Taxi Driver, Drive), Emmy Award winner Ellen DeGeneres (The Ellen DeGeneres Show), Willem Dafoe (the Spiderman franchise), Emmy Award winner Allison Janey (The West Wing, Juno), and Academy Award winner Geoffrey Rush (Shine, the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise), this movie is good for audiences of all ages, and the 3D makes it even better than the first time.

I give this movie 4 out of 5 starfish!
