  • WHAT I LIKED: 'Finding Nemo' is one of those films that just represents very simple, very effective story-telling that works extremelly well. The adventure is easy but highly engaging because the father-son relationship is well developed, the meaningful arcs with humourous over-tones to make the whole experience really fun but gripping at the same time, and a layer of visual and audiable splendour fill you with confidence in the fact that Pixar really know what they're doing.
    WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE: There's no getting away from it, it's hardly the most layered film of all time (and the single setting drives this point home a little too much occasionally).
    VERDICT: 'Finding Nemo' is back-to-basics storytelling that works because it's executed so well. I mean, who doesn't hold a place in their heart for this classic?
