First released back in 2003, the fifth feature from the massively popular animation studio, Pixar, is back on the big screen with even more glorious in 3D. Its a story of a deepwater fish daddy desperate to protect his only spawn. The rebellious offspring is whisked away to be imprisoned in a waiting-room aquarium at a sadistic dentist’s clinic.

In an aquatic treat, the chase is on as the distraught dad, accompanied by a ditzy surgeonfish (DeGeneres) prone to lapses in short-term memory, embark on a rescue mission. Meanwhile, young Nemo and his fellow fishnapping victims finalise their own plans for a great escape. Debutant writer-director Andrew Stanton, crams the feel-good fable with wondrous visuals while ensuring that the life lessons are schmaltz-free.
