This movie came out the year I graduated high school – yup, just told you all how old I am. I never saw it in theaters, but remember watching it about a year after it came out on “The Wonderful World of Disney”. That was my usual Sunday night ritual. I very much enjoy this movie, but find it somewhat disappointing that there are no earworm-type songs to get stuck in my head.
Plot Summary: After his son is captured in the Great Barrier Reef and taken to Sydney, a timid clownfish sets out on a journey to bring him home. (www.imdb.com)
Fun Fact: Among the toys in the waiting room are the jack-in-the-box and Buzz Lightyear and, on a shelf, the plane he used to “fly” in Toy Story (1995) and Pixar’s trademark ball from Luxo Jr. (1986). (www.imdb.com)
Favourite Character: Dory
Favourite Song: Interestingly enough, not your typical Disney soundtrack. Other than Dory’s sing-songy “Just Keep Swimming”, there are no lyrics to any of the music in this movie.
You know, for a clownfish, he really isn’t that funny.
Fish are friends, not food.
Just keep swimming.
All drains lead to the ocean.
I look at you and I’m home.
Final Thoughts: Just keep swimming. Keep moving towards your dreams, goals, that crazy idea you have in your mind. You’ll get there if you just keep moving in that direction.
