When Finding Nemo first hit the big screen in 2003, I was just out of high school and busy with college, so I didn't get a chance to see it in theaters. Eventually I ended up watching it, though, and fell in love with all of the characters. Disney PIXAR movies have a special place in my heart, so I was thrilled to get a chance to see the 3D version of Finding Nemo.
Marlin the clownfish (voiced by Albert Brooks) and his wife have just moved into a plush 'neighborhood' in the Australian coast. As they discuss baby names for their 100's of eggs, a terrible tragedy takes the life of Marlin's wife and all but one of the eggs. Marlin makes it his life's mission to make sure that his only child, Nemo (Alexander Gould) is never in harm's way by becoming possibly the most over protective parent in the sea.
History nearly repeats itself, however, when on Nemo's first day of school, he is dared to swim into dangerous waters and is captured by a human. Marlin then sets out on his quest to find his only son. He encounters several quirky characters on his journey, most notably Dory (Ellen DeGeneres) who is a Blue Tang fish with a short term memory loss issue. Dory steals the show with her one liners and silly antics throughout the entire film.
This film was really fun to see in 3D. I was worried I was going to get motion sickness, but I had no issues. I had never seen a movie in 3D before so it was really exciting for me. It was the day before Ruby's third birthday so she came along too. I think she was a little too young, though for the 3D experience because she took her glasses off fairly quickly and then found another three year old to quietly play with in the aisle

I would definitely go check this movie out! Take your kids with you, they will LOVE it! Teens who were little when the movie first came out would have a blast seeing it in 3D!
