'Finding Dory' Review

It's so nice to have him back. Pixar filmmaker Andrew Stanton, the man behind Finding Nemo and Wall-E, returns to the fold to bring us Finding Dory, which you may have quickly surmised is a sequel to Finding Nemo. Fortunately, I was able to get over my grumpiness that, technically speaking, they're not trying to find Dory in the movie -- really, Dory is doing most of the finding -- to see this sequel for what it is: the most purely entertaining and emotional Pixar movie in quite a while. It's just a crackerjack example of everything the studio has done before, all in one comfy-cozy package. I reviewed the film for Screen International.
