This belated sequel to Finding Nemo is set one year later. Dory, who still suffers from shot-term memory loss, suddenly remembers her parents and sets out to find them with the help of Marlin and Nemo. Their adventure takes them to the coast of California. In the early stages, it looks like this Pixar animation is out to repeat the original beat for beat, but it really comes to life in the Marine Life Institute where the action picks up and the script throws in new, clever twists. The new characters are as lovable as the old ones, and the end result is very entertaining.
