"The heartwarming story will make you reevaluate your life."

“Before you catch the sequel that everyone hopes is a little more ‘Toy Story 2’ than ‘Cars 2,’  revisit the movie that had to spoil its own ending in its title,” begins the latest Honest Trailer created by Screen Junkies for “Finding Nemo.”

As usual, the video gives you a detailed, more straight-forward, blunt recap of the Disney and Pixar movie that made everyone fall in love with clownfish and Dory. And yes, the video does touch on the subject of the popularity of clownfish as pets and then the “death of countless fish that kids tried to free down the toilet.”

The heartwarming story will make you reevaluate your life but it will also take you on an adventure that “combines the wonder of ‘The Little Mermaid,’ the excitement of  the ‘Great Escape’ and the musical talents of Ellen DeGeneres.”

With “Finding Dory” being released in a few days, the Honest Trailer also hopes that Pixar didn’t go full “Minions” on us (being that the “Despicable Me” spin-off received mixed reviews) and compares the forgetful fish to Guy Pearce’s character in Christopher Nolan’s thriller “Memento.”
