  • Kate Taylor

    DeGeneres goes much further, though, maintaining a delicate balance between Dory’s optimistic personality and the hovering anxieties created by her imperfect memory.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Peter Hartlaub

    The sequel is filled with crowd-pleasing action, adventure and characters — sometimes too many characters. But it rises above its crowded narrative with an intense emotional core, taking a protagonist whose affliction had been played mostly for comedy, and exploring the emptiness and loneliness of her plight.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    It’s a film that spills over with laughs (most of them good, a few of them shticky) and tears (all of them earned), supporting characters who are meant to slay us (and mostly do) with their irascible sharp tongues, and dizzyingly extended flights of physical comedy.

    Variety Full Review
  • Allison Shoemaker

    Pixar’s latest has all the sweet, ricochet-fast humor of the original, the same brilliant animation and rich color, the same winning performances (complete with a few new scene-stealers), and the same simple, staggering emotional intelligence of its predecessor.

    Consequence of Sound Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    What “Dory” lacks in dazzling originality it more than makes up for in warmth, charm and good humor.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Tim Grierson

    Finding Dory is a supremely delightful sequel. Although never challenging the original’s high standing within the Pixar pantheon, this follow-up showcases everything the venerated animation company does so well, providing plentiful laughs, ace action sequences and a deep emotional wellspring.

    Screen International Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    If there has ever been a better voice performance in an animated film than Ellen DeGeneres’ in Pixar’s wonderful sequel Finding Dory, I sure can’t think of it. Her tour de force even surpasses Robin Williams in “Aladdin.”

    New York Post Full Review
  • Moira Macdonald

    For all the witty voices and great escapes (maybe one too many of the latter), Finding Dory is ultimately a character story, and DeGeneres’ lovable, brave Dory swims right into our hearts.

    The Seattle Times Full Review
  • Mark Feeney

    Much of the plot is outrageously, if also cheerfully, implausible — except that, in a context of talking fish, what qualifies as implausible? The important thing is how everything rings true emotionally.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Calvin Wilson

    One of Pixar’s most charming achievements.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    If Finding Dory lacks the fresh surprise of its predecessor, it still brims with humor, heart and animation miracles.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Alonso Duralde

    Finding Dory never quite hits that sweet spot of sadness. The film definitely pushes our buttons as it portrays loss and separation, but it never slows down enough to let us ache. Even so, Finding Dory is rousingly entertaining.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • Drew McWeeny

    Say what you will, but Pixar understands innately that making their audience feel something deeply is the greatest magic trick in movies, and all of their work as technicians and artists are always focused on making that happen. Finding Dory may be familiar magic, but there’s magic in it all the same.

    Hitfix Full Review
  • David Ehrlich

    Finding Dory doesn’t feel lazy, cynical, or like a rehash. On the contrary, it does what a sequel should — it’s a compelling argument for why we make them in the first place.

    indieWIRE Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    In the end, is Finding Dory better than Finding Nemo? It’s funnier and more intricate, but the tears it jerks have been jerked before. It’s not as original, not as deep.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    What it lacks in originality and narrative momentum — even more than Nemo, Finding Dory is in essence a loosely connected series of comic-suspenseful chases, bookended by heart-tugging moments of family separation and reunion — this new movie makes up for in psychological acuity and sensitivity.

    Slate Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    Finding Dory can be touching, sweet and tender, but it’s compulsively, preposterously and steadfastly funny.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    Like the original, Finding Dory makes us understand the fears, joys, struggles and triumphs of family.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Robbie Collin

    Navigates tricky emotional territory with a perceptiveness and tact that isn’t just great storytelling, but could be a real comfort to parents and children alike who unexpectedly see themselves in Dory’s plight.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Bilge Ebiri

    Finding Dory might be messy, but through its central interplay — between present and past, light and dark, joy and pain — it manages an emotional complexity that puts most supposedly grown-up movies to shame.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Ethan Sacks

    DeGeneres and company make Finding Dory memorable.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Anna King

    While Finding Dory is definitely the kind of visual pleasure we’ve come to expect from Pixar, its storyline doesn’t always reach the heights of inventiveness upon which the gigantic animation studio has built its reputation. The film lacks the psychological probing of Inside Out, the existential ponderings of Wall-E, the gentle, stoic sadness of Up.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Finding Dory is enjoyable in its own right, even if its powerful sense of déjà vu keeps it from approaching the pinnacle of the Disney/Pixar collaborations.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    Much of Finding Dory is funny, and fun. But there's something kind of haunting about our heroine's memory thing. If you forget where you are, and who you are, and why you are - isn't that called Losing Dory?

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Tasha Robinson

    The colorful characters don't entirely hide the fact that this is a lesser Pixar film, coasting on Finding Nemo's popularity, and telling a too-similar story that isn't as ambitious or emotionally intense.

    The Verge Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    In deciding not to stray far from the first film in plot or tone, it makes for a pleasant, familiar, cheerfully unassuming fish-in-her-water tale.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    Finding Dory is a good sequel to a great film, and perhaps that's all fans could hope for.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Jamie Maleszka

    The animated story finds true buoyancy in its social value rather than its creative frontiers. Has the movie reinvented the animation game or Pixar’s standing within it? Far from it, but Finding Dory is a well-told promise that individuality and self acceptance always win.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    It’s a solid, entertaining, well-paced sequel featuring terrific voice work, a clever script and some ingenious action sequences. It just doesn’t quite reach the soaring heights of inspirational storytelling and elevated humor of the original.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Christopher Gray

    Finding Dory follows its predecessor in being broadly concerned with comforting notions of home and family.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    The visual personality of the movie is fantastically vivid and bright, the story itself, less so.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    There are enough laughs in Finding Dory to justify Disney wanting a sequel to “Finding Nemo,” one of the most successful animated films of all time. And there’s enough heart and smarts to warrant Pixar making it.

    Movie Nation Full Review
  • Susan Wloszczyna

    The result might be less fulfilling this time, but “Dory” is ultimately worth the voyage. Full Review
  • Chris Nashawaty

    It’s not Toy Story or Inside Out or even Nemo. What it is is a perfectly enjoyable family film that’s comforting, familiar, and a bit slight, like one of those serviceable Lion King spin-offs that Disney used to ship straight to DVD back in the ‘90s.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Kenneth Turan

    Because no one compensates for a thin concept like the people at Pixar, there is a lot to admire in the animated “Dory,” including stunning undersea visuals and an ocean full of eccentric and engaging aquatic creatures. But, as the 13-year gap between “Nemo” and “Dory” indicates, this was not a concept that cried out to be made.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Matt Singer

    Dory is an entertaining and heartfelt sequel, but it never quite shakes the feeling that Pixar, a studio known for breaking new ground in animation, is retracing its steps this time out.

    ScreenCrush Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    There are some rollicky moments in Finding Dory, which comes 13 years after the markedly better “Finding Nemo,” both directed by Andrew Stanton.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Kimberley Jones

    Where "Finding Nemo" capitalized on the awesome splendor and danger of the ocean, this follow-up shifts much of its action to an aquatic park and becomes broader and sillier, or at least reality-busting, for it.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Brian Roan

    In terms of emotional complexity and character evolution, Finding Dory treads the same water as its predecessor with less success. It’s a fine technological update and not a particularly inspired storytelling upgrade.

    The Film Stage Full Review
  • A.A. Dowd

    There’s something a little canned about the film’s emotional arc; the strings show more than they used to on Planet Pixar, even with DeGeneres providing empathy by the gallon.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    The scale of Finding Dory is bigger than that of "Finding Nemo," but I started missing the smaller, more intimate excitement of the fishing tank inside the dentist’s office in Nemo.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Brian Truitt

    While the animation is still top-notch and a slew of new waterlogged personalities buoy the story, it doesn’t have nearly the same sense of heart, wonder and awe as Nemo.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Jordan Hoffman

    The problem with Finding Dory is it doesn’t know when enough is enough. Its believe-in-yourself message is pounded with the subtlety of a hammerhead shark and the final action sequence is really too far-fetched to fathom.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    While rambunctious and passably humorous, this offspring isn't nearly as imaginative and nimble-minded as the forerunner that spawned it.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Matthew Anderson

    Finding Dory is as entertaining, soul enriching and bittersweet as any Pixar production to date.

    CineVue Full Review
  • Jimi Famurewa

    Pixar sequel-phobes be damned — this is a dazzling and technically impressive return to form that delivers a similar high to Finding Nemo without feeling like a retread.

    Empire Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    Finding Dory can be described in exactly the same way as its title character: good-natured, funny, optimistic, darting from place to place, ranging from anxious to frenzied in tone, and unable to sustain an idea for more than a few moments.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Neil Smith

    For all its attempts to expand the original’s ensemble and embellish its themes, Dory is cod in batter beside Nemo’s smoked salmon. But still tasty.
