I remember a decade ago when my niece and nephew would visit our house before we had kids. We had almost nothing for them to watch in terms of children’s movies. Flash forward to the present and we have built up quite the collection. It is important to us to have plenty of family friendly options that we all can enjoy together.
One of our very favorite family films has always been Finding Nemo. There is just something about this heartwarming tale that has always resonated with our family, not to mention the bright colors and interesting point of view. How often do we consider what it would be like to be a little fish in the big ocean? Or a little fish in a fish tank?
Combine that with Ellen DeGeneres’ scene stealing, forgetful fish Dory and it is hard to not love this movie. While I have so many favorite scenes from the movie, one has always been Dory speaking whale and her advice to Marlin about letting go. It is hard, but sometimes you just have to trust that nothing bad is going to happen.
Another favorite is the “Fish are Friends (not food)” scene with the sharks. Do you remember this one?

ABOUT “FINDING NEMO”
In this stunning underwater adventure teeming with memorable comedic characters and heartfelt emotion, “Finding Nemo” follows the momentous journey of an overprotective clownfish named Marlin (voiced by Albert Brooks) and his young son Nemo (voiced by Alexander Gould). When the two are unexpectedly separated in the Great Barrier Reef, Nemo is carried far from his ocean home and deposited in a fish tank in a dentist’s office. Buoyed by the companionship of Dory (voiced by Ellen DeGeneres), a friendly-but-forgetful blue tang fish, Marlin embarks on a dangerous trek and finds himself the unlikely hero of an epic effort to rescue his son––who hatches a few daring plans of his own to return safely home.
