Finding Dory - Movie Review

Last month we had some free time and took the kids to see the new Disney Pixar film, Finding Dory.  We went on opening weekend and the theater was relatively full compared to the typical Sunday morning.  We usually find ourselves going to movies on Sunday morning because they are less than half the price of a weekend evening movie.  When you're a family of four, that makes a huge difference in the monthly budget!

Anyways, back to the movie.  We enjoyed Finding Dory.  If you've seen Finding Nemo, this movie plays off of that and tells the story of Dory, the fish in the movie that has short term memory loss.  We learn of Dory's days as a young fish, how she came to meet Nemo, and what happens next.  Like Finding Nemo, Finding Dory is a feel good movie with a happy ending (you didn't really think the ending was unhappy did you?).

If you have kids and haven't seen Finding Dory yet, I recommend it.  I liked it.  My wife liked it.  And most importantly, my kids loved it!

P.S.  The whole idea of fish having very short memory is a myth.  There are several studies showing fish have relatively good memories and can remember things for several weeks.  That's better than many humans!
