Finding Nemo is about a young clownfish who gets captured by a fisherman and taken to a dentist to be displayed with other fish. Nemo’s father, Marlin then goes on a journey with Dory that he ran into to find his son and bring him back home. On their journey to find Nemo, they swim into a lot of things, such as sharks, jellyfish, turtles, seagulls, and a few pelicans.

The ocean is a diverse biome. It’s filled with many kinds of fish and other different species. These species bond and interact every day. Some may get eaten by other species, but they still interact even if they are getting a chunk taken out of them. In the movie, Marlin who is a clownfish and Dory who is a royal blue tang start a great friendship. They make sure to watch over each other throughout the movie and when they finally find Nemo their friendship stays and extends into the infinity of a fish’s lifespan. I think in real life, fish just pass each other by since they’re only mission is to eat and reproduce.

Finding Nemo shows a lot of natural selection, especially with Dory being a prime example. Dory has short term memory loss which causes her to forget things in a matter of minutes, sometimes seconds. With Dory having this problem, it may cause her to forget her surroundings, which will make her wander and wander. In the real ocean, Dory will have a hard time getting back home. So she’ll swim and swim and swim, which will be dangerous since there are many species in the ocean that would eat her. All in all, she still stays positive and hopeful through it all.

In Finding Nemo, Darwinism isn’t as accurate as it seemed. It’s supposed to be survival of the fittest, but Marlin and Dory seemed to have proven otherwise especially, with Dorys short term memory loss. It says only the fittest could survive, but through everything Marlin, Dory and Nemo encountered, they still survived. When Nemo was flushed down the toilet, he was able to find Dory and he survived. This is incredible because Nemo has a shorter fin than the other which makes it harder for him to swim through the waters; making him vulnerable to other predators. If Nemo was in a real-life ocean, I don’t think he’d be able to survive due to his little fin because it’d be difficult for him to swim without getting captured or possibly eaten. I don’t think it would happen in real life anyway since clownfish are delicate creatures and swim together in packs, staying close to home.

All in all, Finding Nemo was my favorite movie. Despite Dory and Nemo’s un-normalities, they still survived and stayed positive through it all. A lesson was taught and learned. A family was reunited. Overall, the things that happened in this Disney movie would not be possible nor accurate in real life. Either way, it was a great movie.
