The hit summer movie "Finding Nemo" makes it to the small screen in short order. Its the top-grossing movie of 2003, and it was already the best-selling video after only one week, thanks to heavy pre-orders and the enormous publicity push. But at the end of the day, there's no getting around the simple fact that this is one whale of a good movie. The folks at Pixar have cornered all of the magic that seems to have eluded Disney for the past few years.

If you're the last person on the planet who didn't see the movie this in theaters, you can read our Finding Nemo Review. Otherwise, we'll just take it as read and focus on the extras on the 2 DVD set.

The first disc has the wide-screen version of the movie, with audio commentary from the principles, including author/director Andrew Stanton. Also on the first disc is a "Making Of.." documentary and "The Art of Finding Nemo." Disc two contains the full-screen version of the movie, along with several games, "outtakes", Pixar's first computer-animated short subject "Knick-Knack," and a sneak peek at the studio's next animated feature "The Incredibles," which looks hillarious.

Don't make the mistake of letting the Disney/Pixar label put you off. Its like the old Warner Bros. cartoons - there are gags for kids and gags for grown-ups. Ellen DeGeneris's character steals the movie, and is just a delight. Like totally.
