Overview

Finding Nemo

A stunning animated adventure for the whole family, Pixar's runaway box-office smash gets the top-shelf treatment on this Disney/Buena Vista release. Viewable in either original 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen or 1.33:1 pan-and-scan, either way you watch it, the transfer is absolutely stunning -- even if not viewed on the preferred high-definition television. Looking just about as perfect as a film can when transferred to DVD, the image is incredibly sharp and crystal clear. Likewise, the THX-mastered soundtrack, rendered in English, Spanish, or French Dolby Digital EX, surrounds the viewer with all of the sounds of the ocean to remarkable effect. As flawless as the presentation of the film is, though, it's hard to surpass this disc in terms of impressive extras as well. Starting with a brief introduction by director Andrew Stanton and co-director Lee Unkrich, the duo offers viewers a sensible plan of attack for viewing the somewhat intimidating amount of extras, encouraging viewers to watch the film, then the making-of documentary, and then the super-informative visual commentary track. Given all of the bonuses offered in the commentary track alone (which features Stanton, Unkrich and co-writer Bob Peterson), it seems somewhat unfair to simply label this incredibly detailed feature of the disc a "commentary" track, as it virtually redefines the boundaries of what can be accomplished in such a feature. The track is frequently interrupted to show footage of the actors performing the voice-overs, early production sketches, and deleted scenes -- future commentary tracks are bound to follow cue in including such detailed information. Clocking in at nearly a half-hour, and almost unnecessary after the commentary track, is an entertaining making-of featurette. Interviews with John Lasseter and the rest of the film crew show a marked dedication to getting details as authentic as possible, even going so far as to send the director and other crew members scuba diving in order to experience the coral reef firsthand. Subsequently addressing every detail from lighting to writing, there are few stones left unturned in the making-of featurette. The Design Gallery, separated into four categories -- Art Review (with optional commentary), Characters, Environments, and Color Scripts (which alone offers over 300 images) -- breaks down every visual aspect of the film in unparalleled detail. Rounding out the options of the first disc is the ability to turn your television into a virtual aquarium by utilizing looped footage of Finding Nemo's stunning underwater backgrounds. Once again beginning with a brief introduction by Stanton and Unkrich, a seven-minute featurette entitled "Exploring the Reef with Jean-Michel Cousteau" kicks off disc two with an informative and entertaining look at the sea. Humorous banter between Cousteau and Finding Nemo's scaly protagonists is sure to keep the kids laughing while they learn. Next up is an early Pixar short entitled Knick Knack, and Mr. Ray's Encyclopedia offers accurate information on every ocean dweller featured in the film. After the kids play a quick game of "Fisharades," a Storytime feature is sure to keep younger fans occupied. Wrapping things up on disc two, a behind-the-scenes feature is broken into three parts including "Character Interviews," "Studio Tour," and "Publicity." "Character Interviews" are sure to amuse the kiddies by offering a quick Q & A session with Marlin, Nemo, and, of course, Dory. The Studio Tour follows young Alexander Gould (the voice of Nemo) on a fun and not too educational adventure through the Pixar studios. Publicity materials consist of four trailers, fishy facts about three of the film's supporting players, and a print gallery of poster, bus shelter, and other promotional materials. After all of these things, it probably goes without saying that this exhausting release of Finding Nemo is sure to please viewers because, like the movie itself, this incredible disc includes something for everyone.

I've been watching Finding Nemo since I bought it for my son three years ago. Every time I watch I'm blown away by the incredible animation, the humour that keeps me laughing after all this time, the great story and wonderful delivery by Albert Brooks and Ellen De Generes. There is no other movie I could watch so often and still find something new to appreciate with every viewing. Great work!

It is one of my rainy day movies. Don't need to think much, but still enjoyable when your 21. Good for kids but adults can enjoy it as well.

I loved this movie so much, it was my favorite movie for a while. It was also kinda funny. Dory was hilarious. She constantly has amnesia attacks, much to the frustration of Nemo's dad, Marlin (a misnamed guy. This guy is a clownfish, ding-dong!). Also, the beginning is sad, but that doesn't stop the movie from being insanely awesome.

I don't own this movie on DVD yet. We borrowed someone's DVD and watched it and returned it to them but I really liked Finding Nemo and thought it was adorable! It is a cute happy feel good movie that would be great to watch when you are sick or feeling down and need some cheering up! I'm definitely planning to buy the DVD!

In 1989, Disney made a great masterpiece: "The Little Mermaid". What a classic movie! Great animation, nice music, fun characters, and good humor for the whole family to laugh with. Now, about 15 years later, the best movie studio on the planet, Pixar, has come out with yet ANOTHER ocean movie. A movie that also has great animation, nice music, fun characters, and hilarious humor! "Finding Nemo" is about a young clownfish named Nemo who is just starting school. His dad, Marlin, is super over-protective and doesn't want anything to happen to his son. The reason behind this is because he lost nearly all of his family by a hungry shark. When Nemo rebels against his father's wishes, he finds himself kidnapped by a scuba diver and whisked off inside a fish tank in a dentist's office. Determined more than ever to get his son back, Marlin searches for his son, with the help of a forgetful fish named Dorey, 3 vegetarian sharks, and a group of cool sea turtles. Pixar is known for making great family classics ("Toy Story", "A Bug's Life", "Cars") and this one is no different. From the animation, to the score, to the plot developement... this movie is just really entertaining and will make you laugh-out-loud every 2 seconds. And every once in a while, you may want to grab a box of tissues (lol!). But, anyway, this is a really, really good movie! If you have not seen it, you should see it now. Like, right now. Like, this very second...

The movie Finding Nemo was about a clown fish whos son gets his son takein away from him. In the movie Marlin goes in search for his son Nemo. Marlin meets many new creatures under the sea such as Dory and bueatiful blue fish who as short term memory which makes things very interesting on Marlin. He also gets over many of his fears. After Marlin loseing his wife from a big scary fish he became a safty freak. In Finding Nemo you can watch a father face many of his fears to find his son. I really enjoyed the fun adventerous story line. With all the great charectors in Finding Nemo it makes it an easily likeable movie. It is a great movie for childern of all ages, im 15 and i thought that it was one of the gratest movies ever. It was a great movie and I think everyone should see it.

Finding Neom is such a great movie. I love cartoon movies so this why this is one of my favorite movies of all times. It is about a little fish named Neom. He was being taken by these drivers then being put into a dentist's tank. His father, Marlin, does everything he could to get his son back. He deals with three sharks, birds, sea turtles, and jellyfish. He has to take certain trail to get to his son. Some of the trail he goes through are dangerous and can risk his own life. Marlin finally finds his son after several days later. This movie proves to always love those around you because you never know when they are going to leave your sight or your life. Marlin almost lost his son. This movie actually made me cry toward the end. You just have to see this movie!

Finding Nemo is truly a Disney classic: adorable, compelling and extremely witty. I loved it the first time I saw it and each time after I find something new to love about it. My almost twenty something boyfriend and my pesky little brother of fifteen were giggling right beside a little seven-year old girl. In fact my whole family loved it; from seven to sixty-two, Finding Nemo is such a masterful piece that it touches everyone who watches it. I think that is just one of the things that is so special about this movie; it has such an interesting and exciting storyline for all age groups that parents aren’t dragging their kids to a movie any more; they actually want to see a “children’s movie” too. In today’s society, quality family time can be hard to accomplish, but Finding Nemo does it simply with the flip of a tail. Not only will the jokes and side comments have you struggling to contain your laughter the animation will drop your jaw to the floor. Once again Pixar lives up to its reputation of award winning animation that brings “under the sea” bursting to life. From the beautiful coral reef to each scale on every adorable little fishie, Pixar didn’t miss a single detail. And if laughter and amazing animation aren’t enough to sell you on this classic, the storyline of Nemo presents wonderful lessons to children and even parents about love and raising kids. I can’t say enough about this brilliant piece of work, only that you definitely shouldn’t turn down such an amazing experience!!!

I loved this movie and i watched it four times: With my sister, with my family altogether, with my boyfriend, and with my friends. Not once did i get tired from it!

I love it when Pixar does movies from unique points of view, like toys (Toy Story), monsters (Monsters Inc.), ants (A Bug's Life), etc. This is a wonderful story with wonderful meaning, well-developed characters, and hilarious lines. Rock on, Pixar!! I really adore this movie. BUY IT!! Anyone who gives it less than 4 stars deserves to have their tongue nailed to a brick!! FINDING NEMO ROCKS!!!!!!!!

This movie was actually a very amusing movie.It doesn't really matter how old you are.As a fish lover and a future scuba Diver.It really is enjoyable.If you look closely you will find the screenery having great detail in it.It will also teach you more then you think about the Oceans. No matter what age you are, if you sit down for a minute you probably will find your self watching all of it.This is a very well organized movie.

Finding Nemo is one of the most adorable and humorous Pixar movie I have seen. It is really very educational and will teach you so many things in life that you have been missing. The best part of this movie was the Characters and the Animation, it really brings you into the movie. Finding Nemo is one movie that you and your family could watch and enjoy together. It really brings you guys closer as a family. I promise that even an adult will love this movie and feel like a kid again. I guess you can say that this movie is one great film that will fill that gap of happiness.
