Honest Trailers Says Finding Nemo Is Actually '90 Minutes of Tears and Torture'

Jun 14, 2016

When Pixar released Finding Nemo in 2003, it became an instant classic, gifting us with timeless aquatic punchlines ("Just keep swimming!") and a winning cast of anthropomorphized marine characters. It even spawned the forthcoming sequel Finding Dory, starring Ellen DeGeneres.

But the team behind the Honest Trailers has taken a critical eye to the animated favorite, and it turns out the ocean isn't all fun, games, and adventure. In fact — especially as presented in Finding Nemo — it's a very scary place.

"Swim along for a powerful message as this neurotic dad learns to let go of his fear that the ocean is trying to kill you — even though he's totally right — as this children's movie treats the ocean like a nonstop murder parade full of killer sharks, paralyzing jellyfish, deadly mines, hidden nets, your worst nightmares, and tiny anxious-looking fish that eat your worst nightmares whole," the voiceover intones.

Now that they mention it...that does sound about right.
