Hugely disappointing movie. The supporting feature Piper was superb, though...

OK as a kid's movie but I expected something better. It was much too derivative. Artistically, little Dory was very poorly rendered and voiced. Adult Dory in general lacked the perkiness of the character in the Finding Nemo. DeGeneres' voice at times seemed bored and uninspired. (Maybe Ellen is just getting older).

Minor point. Am I the only one who felt the fish were floating in the air. Unlike in Finding Nemo, I did not find the underwater effects in Finding Dory completely convincing or breathtaking.

It does not live up to the first one. That said, it's as close as humanly possible. Definitely the better Pixar sequel this side of the Toy Story's.

Great movie. Not as good as the first one, but that was to be expected.

'Piper' is incredible. It's almost photorealistic, and yet, never approaches the uncanny valley. It just skips the valley, and lands. What an achievement.

Nope, I don't leave a movie theater the moment the trailers start until the credits have finished. I remember it now, that was the bird one.

Yes... Piper is either a SandPiper or a Piping Plover, likely SandPiper.
