Sometimes you have to lose nearly everything to focus your attention on what’s most important, even if you’re a clownfish.
But then it’s not every day a barracuda massacres your entire family, save one damaged egg. Lucky for all us moviegoers, it was Nemo who eagerly emerged from that egg, the big screen’s most beloved orange-striped fish, damaged right fin and all. Not surprisingly, such trauma drove Nemo’s father to helicopter parenting, to the extent such proclivities are possible…underwater…on the Great Barrier Reef. On the other hand, anything is conceivable in animated features. Such was the case nearly 15 years ago with Disney’s release of Finding Nemo.
