Our rating:

Disney's Oscar-winning animated adventure for all the family from the Pixar Animation Studios. Following a terrible tragedy in which his wife and children (well, their eggs) were eaten by predatory fish, Marlin the clownfish (voiced by Albert Brooks) is extremely overprotective of his one remaining son, Nemo (Alexander Gould). But the youngster pays little heed to his father's exhortations to caution and, one day while recklessly showing off on the Great Barrier Reef, he is captured by pet-shop divers. And so the distraught father sets out to rescue his son, with help from Dory (Ellen DeGeneres), a blue tang fish who, despite her chronic memory loss, has worked out that Nemo is being taken to Sydney...

Among the characters they meet along the way are three 'vegetarian' sharks (Barry Humphries, Eric Bana and Bruce Spence). Also featuring the voices of Willem Dafoe, Allison Janney and Geoffrey Rush. Directed by Andrew Stanton from his original screenplay (he also wrote the Toy Story movies, A Bug's Life, Monsters Inc and WALL-E).
