Mommy Movie Reviews – Finding Dory

Finding Dory

Rated PG

3.5 out of 6 star

New to theaters this weekend is Disney Pixar’s “Finding Dory”, a family adventure/comedy (rated PG).

It was a cute film, good but not great. It’s hard for sequels to capture the magic of the original. That won’t stop studios though from trying in pursuit of the all mighty box office dollar, not to mention merchandising opportunities.

The plot was a little too close to “Finding Nemo”. It would have been far more interesting if they went in a completely different direction. It also was heavy on adventure, light on laughs.

With Marlin (voice of Albert Brooks) & Nemo (voice of Hayden Rolence) along for the ride, Dory (voice of Ellen DeGeneres) travels the ocean to make her way home to California in search of her parents. Dory, a blue tang fish who suffers from short-term memory loss, got separated from her parents as a small fish and due to her condition couldn’t remember how to find her way home. Through a series of events, Dory has flash backs of her parents and her home providing enough info for Nemo and Marlin to help her find her way back. But of course, nothing goes smoothly or as planned. Along the way Dory makes many new friends who aid her in her journey, the most interesting being Hank a curmudgeon octopus (voiced by Ed O’Neill).

What made me the happiest is that unlike “The Good Dinosaur”, this was not another Disney Pixar tear jerker. Kids movies should be happy in my opinion, not boo-hoo fests!

Happy Release Day!!!

Today I received an e-mail from my Editor at Cedar Fort Publishing with “Happy Release Day” in the subject line.  It’s official – $5 Family Fun is now an e-book! 

Happy Release Day announcement

I began the project in October 2013 so it’s strange to think that my work is now out in the world.  It’s available currently online through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books & Things and soon on iBooks. 

I’d like to thank the many who have supported me throughout this project!
