So my son LOVES Finding Nemo. I just get a little concerned because he totally freaks out during the dentist scenes in the movie. He's totally find with the rest of the movie though. He is also find with most movies in general. has anyone else had this problem or any similar probelems with movies? Did it lead to fear of the dentist later in life?

I actually think the scariest part was the beginning when all the babies except Nemo were eaten. For a kids movie- it was scary anyway- because kids view their parents as always being able to take care of them and at that point in the movie the mother and the kids fall victim and Marlin (the dad) can't do anything. The getting lost is scary but being that vulnerable is the scariest part. Also- I SO agree. Everyone knows a Dorie.

It is quite scary for kids to think of the parents as not being able to protect the babies, the eggs. I agree. Getting lost can be very scary for the kids, buyt I agree wit hyou, being vulnerable is even worse. Thanks for your comments! :-)

Haha. I love finding nemo and have really found that it is one of the best family movies out there because it is enjoyed by all. There are a lot of parts that could be considered scary though. I don't like the dentist scene either, and the part at the very beginning is very sad, and the part when dorey and nemo meet the sharks is not to settling part. As far as fear later in life, it is possible but I do not know if I would worry about it to much as if he is going to fear it later he probably will no matter what he watches.

Oh good point. Yes, probably will fear the dentist regardless. It's definitely a great family movie! It's one that I don;t have a problem watching over and over and over again! The part with the sharks could be considered a little scary as well. Thanks for your response! :-)

Love finding nemo :) my 'scariest' bit was at the beginning when the barracuda came and attacked the mum and babies leaving just nemo and the dad left :'( I've never heard of someone having a fear of dentists from watching a movie...normally comes about from a bad experience at the dentist I think. When i was 9 I had a bad experience whilst visiting the dentist which made me nervous about going until very recently but not from a movie.

Oh yes, the beginning is scary. It is so sad. I love when the daddy says to Nemo (while in the egg), "Daddy's got you". So cute. A bad experience certainly will cause fear of the dentist. I have never really had any problems with the dentist, but my husband is terrified though. Thanks for you response! :-)

The dentist scenes didn't effect any of my family. But that blue, female fish (can't remember her name - really, that's not a pun) is so typical of many people that we know! It is perhaps one of the most realistic movies ever made in terms of human afflictions.

Very true. I really never thought of it in that way. The forgetful, blue fish is named Dori. Now that I read your response, I will be sure to look at Finding Nemo in a deeper, more meaningful way. Thanks!
