The ‘Toy Story’ films may have made Pixar’s name – and a boatload of cash – but it was ‘Finding Nemo’ that really proved how far audiences worldwide were willing to trust their output. Here was a film with no recognisable story elements, no big star voices, no cute toys: and yet it quickly became Pixar’s banner film, the second biggest box office hit of 2003, and the biggest selling DVD of all time. The film isn’t quite as note-perfect as some of the studio’s later work – Albert Brooks’s worried Dad Marlon can grate, and the oh-so-soppy ending feels a little flat. But the big scenes are thrilling.
