(6-Good Film)

Solid. Entertaining. Amusing.

Long awaited sequel to one of Pixar’s biggest hits, Finding Dory picks up basically where we left off in Finding Nemo. Dory’s (DeGeneres) become like family to Marlin (Brooks) and Nemo, but, spurred on by recurring dreams, she wants to find her parents, lost many years ago. This leads her to a sea life institute in California, and the film, thereon, becomes a series of wacky, endearing new characters. Hank, a short-tempered octopus, and two British, stingy sea lions (voiced by Elba and West) are especially memorable. Overall, the journey is much less epic or surprising-a symptom of being a sequel. That being said, it’s a fun hour and a half. The animation is still the best in the world. The new characters are great, and Dory is still a lot of laughs.
