On Finding Nemo

Anyone who loves the movie Finding Nemo (Lindsey...) might want to stop reading this post right now...I'll wait while you come to your sense and skip to the next one. For the rest of you, I'll be telling you how the movie should have really gone. Pixar does a lot of research for their movies, but I am guessing that they just decided to omit this little factoid. In the movie Coral dies early on. this leaves Marlin without a mate and Nemo without a mom. A single tear rolls down my cheek. Now Pixar uses this to set up the relationship dynamic between Marlin and his son Nemo. In reality the relationship would be there... but very different. You remember in Jurassic Park when the dinasours switch genders and start breeding? Yeah, that's what would ahve happened to Marlin. Marlin would have become Marlina and would have started a new family with Nemo being the father to the next batch of eggs. Awesome, huh?

Pretty clown fish!



  1. Oysters can do that too!

    No worries, you didn't shatter my vision of Disney.

  2. Humans do this too.
