While Pixar did craft one of the great­est se­quels ever – Toy Story 3 – in re­cent years, its follow-up form ( Cars 2,

Mon­sters Uni­ver­sity) has been pass­able at best. Thanks to im­pec­ca­ble pro­duc­tion val­ues and top-flight voiceover per­for­mances, Find­ing Dory swims strongly through bet­ter-than-av­er­age wa­ters. Though a notch be­neath its clas­sic pre­de­ces­sor, Find­ing Nemo, lively pac­ing and an in­spired fi­nale are sure to leave view­ers of all ages per­fectly happy. The story takes place a year af­ter the search-an­dres­cue mis­sion that brought young Nemo (voiced by Hay­den Ro­lence) back into the fam­ily fold. Nemo and his dad Mar­lin (Al­bert Brooks) are now lend­ing a help­ing fin to their for­get­ful friend Dory ( above, Ellen DeGeneres), who has re­mem­bered she has two long-lost par­ents to be re­united with. This is a good, solid G-rated ex­pe­ri­ence that should be kept near the top of ev­ery fam­ily’s must-see list.
