• Ellen DeGeneres is once again the heart of the film as Dory. Her scatterbrained ramblings sound a little old when the film opens, but she flies (literally!) as the story progresses. As for Hank, the moody octopus, he deserves his own spin-off movie – somebody make that happen! It’s sweet and consistently funny, but never breaks new ground.

    I missed the lightheartedness of the original. This one is touchy-feely-weepy, underlining the movie’s big theme — home is where the heart is. What happened to throwing your head back and laughing?

    This is an immensely Disney film, but oh Pixar, like that song about fishbowls (and about going round and round in unending circles), how I wish, how I wish you were here.

    Finding Dory is a good and safe bet for your weekend movie cravings, but that’s about it. You can try to tell yourself that it teaches you to use your shortcomings to your advantage and other motivational stuff but nobody will truly believe that when the story is convenient. Be sure, you will laugh, your kids will laugh but be also sure, you will not cry.

    Finding Dory is not as ambitious as Finding Nemo and lacks some of the magic of the first film. Despite this, it is still an emotional and heartwarming movie, and it’s also filled with clever humorous gags and visual feats.

    Speaking of visuals and 3D, Disney-Pixar ensures that you are in for a treat. The aquatic imagery leaves you spellbound. A few scenes do seem a bit too stretched but given the beauty of the visuals, Finding Dory is an absolute delight to watch. It’s sweet and sentimental story is bound to leave you teary-eyed.

    Dory definitely deserves a one-time viewing at least. It’s been a while and we’ve missed her. Beyond that, well, that’s up to you….

  • …does not disappoint. With funny moments that hit their mark, strong emotional currents, valuable social lessons packaged in an entertaining visually stunning film, it does manage to live up to the expectation as the FINDING NEMO sequel. All in all, FINDING DORY is a spectacular visual treat from Pixar. Highly recommend!

  • For those of us who’ve waited for over a decade to see Marlin, Nemo and Dory again, Finding Dory is a welcome piece of nostalgia. The new surprises make for a great experience, one made for the whole family.

  • This is a wholesome film, that’s entertaining even while it sends out a message of love and understanding for all such differently-abled entities in the world. Such old fashioned values need to be given such frequent spring-boards if the world has to becomes a more equitable and fair living space!

    …the bar might have been set too high by the 2003-hit. And hence, it would be only fair to comment that in isolation, Finding Dory is definitely a fun watch, to say the least. You are taken in by the delightful characters yet again, the ocean looks just as lovely if not better and well, it is yet another Disney adventure you’d do well to enjoy.

    Finding Dory may not be the Godfather 2 or The Empire Strikes Back of the animation genre. Yet, it is a film that can be enjoyed by both kids and adults! Go for it…

  • Finding Dory succeeds in transporting us to a wonderful underwater world while enhancing the franchise’s emotional core.

    “Finding Dory” is a fairly entertaining. It is worth a watch, only if you have not seen “Finding Nemo” or if you suffer from short-term memory loss.

  • Finding Dory fills us to the brim till the end. In a joyous climactic escape sequence an in-transit van, carrying fish tanks, crashes into the ocean in slo-mo as Louis Armstrong’s ‘What a Wonderful World’ plays out. We leave the theatres humming the same line in our heads.

  • Like its predecessor, this one too is an animated adventure film with anthropomorphised wildlife, in the same cinematic universe, telling a nearly-similar story.

  • The exquisiteness of the marine backdrops get drowned by the uninteresting yammering of the characters, especially Dory, whose refrain that she does not remember anything but her name is charming only at the first instance. The detailed reproduction of underwater life is there before the eyes, but it constantly competes with the assault on the ears from talkative and neurotic sea creatures that have clearly spent too much time in human company.

    Finding Dory is a fairly entertaining. It is worth a watch, only if you have not seen Finding Nemo or if you suffer from short-term memory loss.

  • Despite some minor faults – Finding Dory takes some extreme liberties with fish out of water and the script gets repetitive in the second half – the film is about finding hope even in the darkest of places. About learning to love and connect with people even when you previously thought you couldn’t.
