10. Finding Nemo (2003)
Why, may you ask, has Finding Nemo just scraped into the top ten? It must be remembered that it is number ten out of only thirteen films to date, which are all of an extremely high standard (with the possible exception of Cars 2). Finding Nemo is a beautiful film, filled with moments of sheer hilarity: Dory speaking whale, Bruce the non-eating-fish shark, riding the wave with cute little Squirt, “duuuuuude,” what could be better? But it is also filled with heart wrenching moments, the clearest example being Marlin’s sheer determination to find his son, to ultimately finding Nemo apparently dead, playing on the worst fear of so many parents.
