    Nemo is a little fish kid whose overprotective dad, Marlin, is perfectly voiced by Albert Brooks.

    “An awe-inspiring display of special effects, and its characterization, particularly that of the all-American hero Buzz, is very funny. As well as being a landmark of sorts in commercial cinema, Toy Story 2 really is that mythical beast: an extremely enjoyable picture for all ages” (Peter Bradshaw, Guardian).
