Dory is a blue tang fish and she has trouble remembering things. She started having problems when she was a young fish. Now that she is older, she remembers she must have had parents and they must be wondering what happened to her. Two clownfish Nemo and Marlin are her friends and they are father and son. The group of three sets out on the journey to find her parents. They think it’s possible that her parents are at the Marine Life Institute. This is a conservatory that houses different types of ocean creatures.
There is a lot of color and characters in this film. Many instances of on the edge of your seat!! Wondering if the characters are going to get out of the fix or danger that they are in? There are a lot of split second decisions and a lot of dealing with Dory not remembering what they are trying to do. This film is good for both children and adults. 3 ½* (I liked this movie)

Special Note: Filmed at Pixar Animation Studios, Emeryville and Walt Disney Feature Animation, Burbank, California. Hank the octopus has seven tentacles and he should have eight. The animators couldn’t fit eight onto his body. The license plate on a truck is CALA113. A113 is in all Pixar movies and it reverences the Cal Arts room where many Pixar animators studied. Ellen DeGeneres has talked about getting this movie filmed since Finding Nemo was released in 2003. Dory has over 25 million likes and is the most liked character on Facebook from any Disney or Pixar film.
