Becoming a parent is the most wonderful, hair raising, stressful adventure that anyone could go on. On one hand, you know that at some point, your kid is going to grow up and leave the nest. But you still want to do your best to protect your kid from the dangers of life.
In Finding Nemo (2003) Marlin (Albert Brooks) is a clown fish who constantly worries about his son, Nemo (Alexander Gould). Like any kid, Nemo ignores his father’s warning about going into the open ocean. Venturing into the open ocean, Nemo is captured and put into an aquarium in a dentists office. Facing the open ocean and it’s dangers, Marlin will do anything to find his son. At the same time, Nemo joins his fellow sea creatures to escape the aquarium and return to the sea.
This is a rare Disney animated film that appeals to both adults and kids. It has the adult humor and insight that only comes with maturity, but also is youthful enough to entertain a young audience.
I absolutely recommend it.
