3 NEW BUDDY MOVIES MESSAGE FAMILY, FRIENDS AND LOYALTY
FINDING DORY (2016) 3 Stars (out of 5)
As I look back on a week of movie screenings, you may be surprised on how and why — I came to the conclusions that I reached regarding FINDING DORY. First, let’s talk about the “Big Fish in the Room!”
I never found DORY to be terribly interesting. In fact, I thought the film was far too long; and the non-stop chatter was unable to keep my attention or interest. This may be the most significant moment in my film critic career as I am now prepared to acknowledge that when it comes to this animated motion picture –there is a real generation gap.
So in fairness to the genius of Pixar and the magic of Disney, I yield this review of FINDING DORY to my young colleague Jack, who just became eleven years of age the day after the screening earlier this week.
“I liked the narration. There were parts that were funny. There were times that it was sad. This story followed FINDING NEMO. It was a good movie. I liked all of it. 5 Stars (out of 5)”
Directed by Andrew Stanton, he already has FINDING NEMO and the brilliant WALL-E” to his credit. Voice cast includes Ellen DeGeneres, Albert Brooks, Ed O’Neill, Kaitlin Olson, Ty Burell, Eugene Levy and Diane Keaton. Too much repetitive dialogue.
Don’t leave the theater until the final credits have rolled. There is one last animated scene that I bet 99% of the audience will miss. And it is pretty funny.
