What are Some of the Best Movies for Children? – Finding Nemo and Finding Dory

You probably came to this article because you are frustrated that a lot of the movies today are raunchy and not really appropriate to show kids. I best you want to know what are some of the best movies for children.

I bet you are looking for a couple fun movies to watch. These two movies are some of my favorite Pixar movies. Finding Nemo and Finding Dory have to be on the top of the list for some of the greatest movies Pixar has ever made.

Did you know that before Disney acquired Pixar in 2006, the sequel to Finding Nemo was going to be drastically different than Finding Dory. Since Pixar was not under Disney’s umbrella back then, the storyline of Finding Nemo 2 was going to have Merlin as the one captured. Nemo and Dory were supposed to find him.

Disney launched a subsidiary to pioneer sequels of Pixar films. Circle 7 animation was launched in 2004, but this was short lived and was shut down 2 years later.

I thought that would be an interesting tidbit of information that you would like to know.

These sets of movies are sure to turn into classics one day. One of the famous quotes I remember from these movies is when Dory says ‘just keep swimming’.

Finding Nemo


Merlin is an overprotective father to his son Nemo, who was born with a short fin. One day, Nemo

decided to venture out on his own, as a sign of defiance against his father, toward a speed boat, but got captured by a scuba diver. Nemo then lands in a dentist tank in Sydney.

Of course, Marlin is freaking out and swims after the boat to find Nemo. This is when the adventure begins. Marlin encounters dangers and friends along the way. One of these friends is the happy go lucky fish, Dory, who is the main character in the successful sequel.

I don’t want to reveal any more information about this great movie. No one likes that guy who spoils the movie.


I give this movie a 10 out of 10. I am sure that people will not be disappointed by this movie. It proved successful at the box office by netting a gross of $871 Million, out of a budget of $94 Million.

To read more about Finding Nemo, go to their wikipedia page.

Stay tuned and read the following about Finding Dory, which may in fact be a bit better than the original in my opinion.

Finding Dory


This is the long awaited sequel that we have been waiting for. Dory suffers from short term memory loss, and wanders away from her parents at a young age. While playing with her parents, Dory gets sucked in

Fast forward to today, and Dory is living with Marlin and Nemo in the Great Barrier Reef. Dory is then prompted to find her family, when she is helping in Nemo’s class. After searching the whole ocean, Dory finds herself at a fish Rehabilitation Center, where she encounters friends and allies.

Will Dory find her parents? Or is all hope lost? Find out by watching this exciting movie.


It seems like Pixar keeps topping itself by making better movies than the ones before. This movie is proof of that. It made $1.029 billion at the box office and was a big success when it came out in 2016.

It became the highest grossing animated film in North America and the third highest grossing film in 2016 behind Captain America and Rogue One, two Disney films. It was also the first Pixar film to pass $1 billion behind Toy Story 3.

I give Finding Dory a 10 out of 10. I am sure that you and your family will love this movie. It is definitely within some of my top favorite Pixar movies.

This conclude one of Pixar best series. Will there be a sequel? Time will only tell.


These are by far some of the best movies for children, adults are sure to love them too, like I do.

  6. After searching the whole ocean, Dory finds herself at a fish Rehabilitation Center, where she encounters friends and allies. While reading I know that This is the long awaited sequel that we have been waiting for. Dory suffers from short term memory loss, and wanders away from her parents at a young age. Will Dory find her parents? Or is all hope lost?

  7. I have an 8 year-old nephew and a 3 year old niece that I enjoy watching kid movies with. I also have a 15 year old nephew, but he isn’t much into watching these kind of movies anymore. Maybe he will grow out of the teen phase. I agree with you about the raunchy kid movies that really aren’t as kid appropriate as they seem.

    I grew up watching Finding Nemo, I even got to watch it one time at my local aquatic center, while I was in the pool. My favorite part is when Nemo finds Crush, that turtle is just so cool. Surfer turtle, totally tubular. The whole movie is great, the plotline that Merlin has to find his son is sad, but the adventure Nemo gets to live and the friends he makes is priceless and a great model for all kids to Never Stop Swimming.
