“Finding Dory” Directed by Andrew Stanton & Angus MacLane

I’ll be honest. I find Dory kind of annoying. I find her short term memory as a joke gets old really fast and whenever Marlon got frustrated with her, I was on his side. However almost everything else is the movie is very funny. The other animals are funny, Marlon being a bit of a snarker is funny, and I find some of the situations to be funny. The new main characters are funny, the side characters are funny, and the characters that have no lines are still funny! I just find Dory annoying when she has to be funny. When she has to be emotional it works and when she’s having her flashbacks she’s precious. Originally all of Dory’s family was gonna have short term memory. Quote Stanton –
“She has this line in the first movie, she says, ‘I suffer from short-term memory loss. It runs in my family. At least, I think it does.’ And I spent the first year and half, maybe two, with my writer, Victoria Strouse, trying to make parents with short-term memory loss work – and I don’t recommend it, because it’s annoying to have three people with short-term memory loss try to talk to each other. It’s not funny for that long. It’s annoying very quickly. It was a problem, and so we abandoned that.”
Other than my complaints about Dory, I think its a very funny movie and has a lot of redeeming features. The Sea Lions are the highlight in my opinion.
Final Verdict: 7/10 Seashells
