Finding Dory: Movie Review

After seeing Finding Nemo (and bawling my eyes out), I couldn’t WAIT for the sequel since the story was original, captivating, humorous, emotional, and full of valuable life lessons. It was such a fantastic family movie! I loved everything about it! Once the sequel was CONFIRMED, the child in me jumped for joy! Unfortunately, the […]
