From Everybody:

An average Pixar film with fun new characters.

Finding Dory meets the lowest bar that Pixar movies set: it makes you laugh and cry, or at the very least, it makes you tear up. That said, it’s definitely not the studio’s strongest outing to date. It’s not as bad as The Good Dinosaur or Brave, but it doesn’t live up to better Pixar films or even its predecessor Finding Nemo. This film actually borrows quite a bit from Finding Nemo particularly in its narrative arc, which is disappointing. When it explores unique plot threads like how Dory’s short term memory issues have affected her life, the picture can be engrossing, especially as she learns to manage her disability more effectively. Although the movie’s constant flashbacks to Dory’s childhood take you out of the action and its overuse of baby Dory’s baby voice is annoying. If writer/director Andrew Stanton and his team had done a smoother job of integrating those flashbacks, Finding Dory would be much stronger as a whole. What really makes the fi...(more)

What really makes the film worth watching though, is its introduction of several new characters that deliver tons of laughs. Hank the septapus (Ed O’Neill) is very entertaining for his unique ability to sneak around and perform human-like activities. Seeing his hardened exterior crumble as a result of the friendship he develops with Dory is charming. Destiny (Kaitlin Olson), Bailey (Ty Burrell), Fluke (Idris Elba), and Rudder (Dominic West) all delight as well with their amusing antics. Their collective presence infuse much-needed excitement into this otherwise average Pixar tale. (less)

a sweet movie and worthy sequel

This is a follow-up to one of Pixar's enduring classics, and that's a tall order. But Finding Dory is, for lack of a better term, really sweet. It's not quite the five-hanky sobfest that is Toy Story 3, but it will still provide warmth and fuzzies that make you want to hug someone. Baby Dory is perhaps the cutest thing I've ever seen. And the Octopus - er, sorry, Septipus - is one of the most impressive animated characters I've seen - it's almost like the Pixar animators are just showing off. Pixar remains the gold standard for animated stories with lots of heart.

Worth the journey

Surprisingly better than the trailer led me to believe. I was glad the creators of this film crafted an actual story instead of pulling another Cars on us. Humorous and beautiful. And baby Dory is one of my favorite things I've seen this year. It had some other creative, fun characters, and one of the most badass Pixar climaxes ever. Take the kids.
