Reviewed: Finding Nemo

Finding Nemo is the most Disneyish of all of Pixar's films to date, plainly evident from the early and distressing death of yet another maternal figure. You have been warned: children may cry, and you might want to look into hourly rates for post traumatic stress disorder counselling after the first fifteen minutes of the film. Thankfully, small people should perk up somewhat by the end, though if you own fish and don't explain the whole flushing down the toilet thing, you may well need to shell out (as it were).

Finding Nemo took a while to get going, and if anything else suffered mainly from the fact that a large proportion of the funniest scenes were included in the trailer. An appreciable number of scenes elicited a "Oooh, this is the bit in the trailer" reaction followed by the required belly ache laughter. This, though, was probably a side effect of me having watched the trailer so many times in the first place (in my defence, it's a thoroughly amusing trailer).

Highlights: Crush, the sea turtle (impeccably voiced by writer/director Andrew Stanton), some sort of crustacean in a tank (you'll know it when you see it) and DeGeneres' Dory was wonderfully cute and engaging. Marlin (Albert Brooks) got slightly irritating after a while--the emphasis there is on the slightly.

For me, Finding Nemo was probably as good as the first two Toy Story films, though those still retain something of an edge simply because the subject material in that franchise lends itself to some great in-jokes and gags. Not so much in Finding Nemo, though it needn't be said that Pixar's characterisation is as spot on as ever.

Finding Nemo is slated for a 10 October 2003 release in the UK.
