A Family Movie in the Truest Sense – FINDING DORY Movie Review

Disney•Pixar’s FINDING DORY reunites everyone’s favorite forgetful blue tang, Dory, with her friends Nemo and Marlin on a search for answers about her past. What can she remember? Who are her parents? And where did she learn to speak Whale? Directed by Andrew Stanton and produced by Lindsey Collins, the film features the voices of Ellen DeGeneres, Albert Brooks, Ed O’Neill, Kaitlin Olson, Ty Burrell, Eugene Levy and Diane Keaton.

“It’s a sweet story. It’s a story about family and wanting to fit in – wanting to do something that you don’t think you’re ever going to do but all of a sudden you realize I’m gonna do this and I can do this.” – Ellen DeGeneres describing what FINDING DORY is about.

Watch Ellen’s interview below (courtesy of Walt Disney Studios Motion Picture) as she talks about her role as Dory, new characters and answers ‘What would Dory do?’.

    My family means the world to me and I put them first, always. I am very careful on who I let into my circle, since it’s always family first.

    My family is everything to me. I was blessed with an amazing hardworking man and together we have a beautiful precious little girl who is our sunshine even on a rainy day. I also have an awesome 8 year old niece who is dear to our hearts..a second daughter to us and big sister/cousin to my babygirl. My life is complete with them <3

  7. Laura Serrata says:

    Family is sticking together and making memories .. They are my rock and we support each other and give unconditional love no matter what ❤️❤️

  8. When I was younger I use to compare my “family” life to my friends family life. I never really felt that mine was equal to theirs. A life of comparison will never give you fulfillment. Now that I am older I understand that it is the journey I create for not only my own family but for those who are with us . Whether it be my children’s friends, neighbors, or my church family. It’s the people who we choose to love or show kindness to that makes the word “family” a word of love.

      Stacey, that is so true. I used to do the same. Now, I can’t imagine having anyone else’s family but mine. Thank you for sharing!

    My family means to me more than words can express, its joy, love, memories as we age but most of all at the end its one love.

  12. Rita says:

    My family means everything to me. They drive me crazy sometimes, but I love them.

  13. Christina Sanchez says:

    There are no words in what my family means to me. We support each other through thick and thin. My children support each through any crisis they may have. It’s beautiful to watch. Differently would be lost without them. I am blessed to have watch my grown children become such great men. Even grown they always find their way home to visit. My 11yr old daughter looks up to them. Thank God for my 4 blessing named Noah, Brandon, Nichokas and Shelby.

  14. Christine K says:

    Family means everything. My children and husband are the catalyst for personal change, growth, and development and, together, our relationship fills all of our lives with love and laughter.
