When life gets hard what do you do? Just keep swimming, just keep swimming, just keep swimming, swimming, swimming. And where are we swimming to again? Why, P. Sherman, 42 Wallaby Way Sydney that is. It's hard to believe, but Finding Nemo was released a whopping twenty years ago on this day, and for many of us who were kids during that time period, there were so many lessons in this movie that has gone on to make much more sense as we've gotten older. A tale about a perhaps overly-conscious father who's worst fears come true when his son gets taken by a human, Finding Nemo is a summation of what a parent will do for their child when their kid is in danger. Along the way we got to meet many different characters—some funny, some endearing, and some downright vicious, and we're left with classic one-liners that we'll always remember ("fish are friends, not food").
In honor of the film's 20th anniversary, we're reflecting back on all the things that made Finding Nemo great and a worthy generational pass down.
