‘Finding Dory’: a spoiler-free movie review for parents

Posted on
Dory may be forgetful, but "Finding Dory" is not forgettable. Not by a long shot. Disney-Pixar's sequel to "Finding Nemo" takes us deeper into the Big Blue World and introduces us to a new cast of characters that blend seamlessly with Marlin, Nemo and other favorites from 13 years ago.

I can't remember the last movie that prompted me to laugh out loud so much in one sitting. And if our theater's audience -- which was comprised of a mix of adults and teens on their own and families with younger and older children -- was a good example, the humor appealed to all ages.
