Finding Nemo is just as great as it was when it came out in 2003, but the 3-D is really just superfluous. Whenever I see an animated movie in 3-D, like Up or Toy Story 3, I think the 3-D looks cool for about the first fifteen minutes. Then I forget it was even in 3-D at all. Like right now I have no memory of what cool 3-D things happened in Finding Nemo in 3-D.
If you want to get the kids out of the house or one of the parents needs a break, go see Finding Nemo 3-D, but see a matinee version if possible. It’s not really worth the price of you plus your kids when you can just buy the DVD and get endless hours of entertainment from it for less than it costs to see the movie in a theater in 3D once.
There is a pretty cool short starring Rex in his new home with Bonnie before Finding Nemo starts, which is definitely worth watching but will probably be available whenever Disney releases the next edition of Finding Nemo on Blu-Ray or DVD.
Finding Nemo hasn’t lost any of its charm. The age old lesson of “Just keep swimming!” never gets old. Marlon, Nemo, Dory, and Crush will keep your kids laughing and you entertained. If you love this movie like I do, it’s worth another watch in the theater. If you’re not big on theaters, though, you can save it for an at home movie night with the kids.
If your kid has never seen Finding Nemo, take them to see it in a theater. It’s an excellent movie in 2 or 3D.
