photography. Famous film critic, Roger Ebert, said the animation, " adds an unexpected beauty, a use of color and form that makes it one of those rare movies where I wanted to sit in the front row and let the images wash out to the edges of my field of vision." Finding Nemo has won an Oscar for the "Best Animated Film," which is well deserved because the animation was excellent. The film lacked music and songs. None of the characters ever broke out into the song. Other Disney films, such as The Lion King, had songs such as, "The Circle Of Life" which makes the overall film more enjoyable.

Finding Nemo is lacking the comedy factor that made other Disney and Pixar films so amazing, such as Toy Story or Shrek. The jokes throughout the movie were stale and were repeated multiple times. It was very clear that Pixar focused their energy more on the visuals instead of the screenplay. Dory’s joke was that she has "short-term memory loss." Every time she had a memory lapse, it seemed as if she was meeting Marlin for the first time. Dory’s unintelligence becomes very annoying throughout the film. Marlin, Nemo’s father, had the same terrible joke in the movie, and he repeated it many times saying that just because he’s a clownfish doesn’t mean he’s funny.

There were many different characters portrayed in Finding Nemo. The characters, in the film, included "Dory," portrayed by Ellen DeGeneres and "Marlin" portrayed by Albert Brooks. The acting in the film had left a great deal to be desired. The characters, in the movie, are trivial. Any actress or actor could have rescued this movie. There were no interesting characters in the film, and they are equally as flat as the storyline. The characters could have used more development.

The movie moved along at a slow pace at a grueling one hour and forty minutes. It was too long for a cartoon with the same repeated storyline. It could have ended a least twenty minutes earlier. It is not worth sitting through the entire film just to see the beautiful graphics.

Overall, the film lacked the "WOW" factor. The animation is spectacular, but that can’t cover up the bad acting and the dull, predictable storyline. Finding Nemo is a cheesy film. It doesn’t appeal to all audiences and is too boring for adults to enjoy and too dramatic for young children. For an animated comedy, Finding Nemo was missing the comical factor. It is not the best film out there, but there are other fish in the sea.
