I just thought I would add my own two cents to this movie review section. This is such a wonderful film for the entire family! My children saw this movie when it first came out and they loved it, but we never bought the movie. Well after a discussion with my 16 year old daughter one evening I decided to change that and bought the movie via instant video.
Now all three of my kids, ages 16, 12 and 9 all watch this movie over and over and they laugh as they repeat the lines of the characters.
Honestly, I'm not one to like many movies, and animated movies even less. I'd much rather read a book than watch a movie. But I have to admit this is a favorite of mine. Ellen DeGeneres totally makes the whole movie with her ditsy character. Somehow I can even envision her in the sound booth speaking into a mic with her facial expression as she speaks Dory's lines.
I love this film and I'm really glad I bought it for my kids to enjoy over and over.
