Finding Dory / Reviews

Rather than attempt to replicate the masterful Finding Nemo, Pixar wisely goes a different route with its sequel Finding Dory. While Nemo was an against-the-odds adventure that deserved an epic scale, Dory is more of an infiltration comedy that largely sticks to one area: a marine life institute. Does it reach the emotional heights of its original? No. Is it funnier? Surprisingly, yes.

Spills over with laughs (most of them good, a few of them shticky) and tears (all of them earned)...

While Finding Dory is definitely the kind of visual pleasure we’ve come to expect from Pixar, its storyline doesn’t always reach the heights of inventiveness upon which the gigantic animation studio has built its reputation.

Isn’t just great storytelling, but could be a real comfort to parents and children alike who unexpectedly see themselves in Dory’s plight.

The inclusiveness of the film's vision is remarkable partly because it feels so natural, something that no adult will really need to explain. Children will get it, perhaps more intuitively and easily than the rest of us.

DeGeneres's vocal performance is extraordinary, effortlessly shifting from jokes to self-perpetuated anxiety attacks.

Dory's adventures are amiable enough, but the film lacks energy and suffers from a sense of predictability.

Like everything Pixar have done before, but even more so, Finding Dory is a gorgeous looking film.

Ventures into some interesting social territories where Finding Nemo did not.

While rambunctious and passably humorous, this offspring isn't nearly as imaginative and nimble-minded as the forerunner that spawned it.
