Finding Nemo is a computer-animated film produced by Pixar Animation Studios and released to theatres by Walt Disney Pictures and Buena Vista Distribution in the United States on May 30, 2003, in Australia on the 28th of August, 2003. This is the first Disney-Pixar film not to premiere in the United States in November, making it the first to be released in the UK in the same year, rather than the next.
Finding Nemo set a record as the highest grossing opening weekend for an animated feature, making $70 million (surpassed in 2004 by Shrek 2). It was, for a time, the highest grossing animated film of all time, eclipsing the record set by The Lion King. However, in less than four weeks of release, Shrek 2 surpassed Finding Nemo's domestic gross. By March 2004, Finding Nemo was one of the top ten highest-grossing films ever, having earned over $850 million. The film received an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature Film in 2004. The film also received a Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards in 2004 for favorite movie.
The title character's name alludes to Captain Nemo, the submarine captain in two of Jules Verne's novels: Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea and The Mysterious Island; also translates to "no one" in Latin, leading the title to mean "Finding No One."
The movie was released on a two-disc DVD on November 4, 2003 in the US and Canada, and in Australia on the 16th of January 2004.
The film tells the story of a widowed clownfish named Marlin (voiced by Albert Brooks). Marlin, after losing his wife, Coral, and children, in a barracuda attack sometime back, tries his best as a parent to his only remaining son Nemo, but has a tendency to over-parent and stifle his son. Because Nemo has a fin smaller than the other (his "lucky fin"), and because he promised to not let anything happen to him, Marlin is constantly warning his son that the ocean isn't safe (although he is clearly subjecting his son to his own neurotic agoraphobic tendencies).
Embarrassed once too often by his father's over-protectiveness, Nemo ventures out into open water towards a 'butt' (a fishing boat, mispronounced by one of Nemo's little friends) to prove to his father wrong. Unfortunately, Marlin was for once correct, as Nemo is immediately scooped up by a kindly dentist who takes pity on him because of his fin. Thus it is up to Marlin and his newfound "guide", Dory (voiced by Ellen DeGeneres), a Regal Blue Tang fish who suffers from short-term memory loss to bring Nemo back, and they must cross the ocean - tangling with the various dangers waiting for them - in order to rescue Nemo from the dentist's office in Sydney, Australia. Nemo, meanwhile, gets involved in a plot with the other fish in the aquarium to escape from the dentist's office and return to the ocean.
