I wrote, "I do love me some Pixar but this film was no Monster’s Inc. or Toy Story 2. Were my expectations too high for this film? Perhaps. Did I enjoy it despite my unreal expectations? Definitely. The animation was really amazing, but the script was a little lacking compared to the other Pixar gems. As Sujan pointed out, "The best Pixar films are the ones with toys or monsters." File this one a notch above Bugs Life."
What in the world was I thinking? This movie is great! I compared it to A Bugs Life? I don't think I've even seen that movie! Albert Brooks cracked me up. The Dory character was hilarious even if Otis and Sam don't quite get her arc. They do love that they calls him Elmo at one point though.
The sharks who don't want to eat fish, the fish tank escape, the surfer dude sea turtles, the Nemo story being passed from fish to fish to seagull, the dentist, the scary little girl ... everything about this movie is fun.
I'm glad to rectify at age 40 what I put on the record when I was 30. Older and wiser.
