Finding Dory (2016)


The friendly but forgetful blue tang fish, Dory, begins a search for her long-lost parents, and everyone learns a few things about the real meaning of family along the way. (IMDb)
The first 2/3s or so is–dare I say it?–rather forgettable (and sequel-ly) as Dory’s memory loss is rehashed for both the humour and the sentimentality already present in Finding Nemo (the emotionally potent reunion being a notable exception). The final act is much better, with the “What would Dory do?” motif nicely elaborating upon another dimension of her personality and setting the stage for more fun “fish out of water” action (the “What a Wonderful World” climax is beautiful and hilarious).
7/10 (Good)
