    Watched this one Friday night. First of all, this is easily the best-looking Disney movie to date. As you probably know, most of it takes place in the ocean, and every small detail you could possibly think of was worked into it. Even if the story sucked, this one would've gotten three stars just for how great it looks. But, alas, it also has a great story about a young clownfish who is caught by divers and placed in a fish tank in a dentist's office. His overprotective father and another fish he meets along the way set out to look for him. Like most recent Disney movies, it seems that the majority of the humor is geared toward adults, but kids will definitely enjoy it too. And, luckily, it wasn't quite as sad as Monsters, Inc. or Lilo & Stitch, but I gotta admit I did sorta keep my tradition going by shedding a little tear at two parts. Overall, it was a great movie, maybe a little too weird to become a real Disney classic, but it's really good. I give it 4 stars.

    Definatley!!! Also, if you buy this movie on DVD...you get 2 full movies. One on each disk. One disk has widescreen and the other has the normal version. Both have all the extras...so if you wanted to share with someone. :)

    I got so screwed at Blockbuster when I went to rent this. They all looked the same so I just grabbed one off the shelf, got home and found that I had gotten the full-screen version. Now, I'm one of those total geeks who has to see a movie in widescreen, and it really bugged me to have to watch it in full-frame. That's why I hate going to Blockbuster, you have to look real close to make sure you're not getting a full-frame version.

    The difference IS you lose up to 33% of the sides of the frame depending on the ratio aspect of the movie you're watching if you watch it full-frame. While that may not mean much to you guys, I consider some movies works of art and as such, feel that they should be seen the way the director originally wanted them to be seen.

    Dan understood...but with widescreen..you lose detail and the subjects are smaller to fit into the widescreen.

    Jim..definately a piece of art!!
