Finding Dory

{4.5/5} “Suck it, bipeds!”

Finding Dory, released in 2016

Dory remembers that she’s from the Jewel of Morro Bay, California and Marlin and Nemo help her find her way there. It turns out it’s a marine life institute. Dory has been tagged. She runs into a grumpy octopus with 7 legs named Hank, who says he’ll help her if she gives him her tag — which will give him the trip to an aquarium in Cleveland that he desires. Will Dory remember enough about her childhood to find her parents?

The short film “Piper” shows in theatres before Finding Dory. It’s simple but beautiful.

Finding Dory is a worthy sequel to Finding Nemo. Like the first movie, the story is simple — but the characters are terrific and it’s lots of fun.

There are lots of great new characters — like the whale shark Destiny, Dory’s childhood friend, and the beluga whale Bailey, who’s having trouble with his echolocation.

Stars the voices of Ellen DeGeneres, Albert Brooks, Ed O’Neill, and Sigourney Weaver. Directed by Andrew Stanton (WALL-E) and Angus MacLane (animator on Toy Story 3). The music by Thomas Newman is delightful.

You’ll even want to stay for the entire end credits.
