Miss Clara, the prayer warrior in the movie War Room This post contains some spoilers. I love seeing how God is working today in the media! Miss Clara praying The movie is about prayer and faith in Jesus Christ.

Lewis classics, from Narnia to Mere Christianity, and 13 spiritual principles behind the art of songwriting, as seen in 13 studio albums by U2—all to answer one question: This is all on the honor system: I wish there was a feature-length film of it.
Morro Bay was a beloved vacation spot for my family when I was growing up in Self disclosure in meet the parents movie California. What a delightful surprise.
Morro Bay does not have an aquarium. Just a guess though. But, as I will discuss in the Entertainment Value section, I think Pixar and Disney missed a huge opportunity for an even more memorable setting than the one they created.
It really burrows into your emotions and psyche and stirs up a wide mix of reactions: And oh how I loved the setting and atmosphere of this film, as I mentioned in the intro.
The wide variety of animals in an aquarium also creates an easy opportunity to create a tank-full of colorful characters. Where was the jaw-dropping Morro Rock that looks like the rock of Gibraltar transplanted to California?
That would have tripled the immersive beauty and atmosphere of the film. Despite these two complaints, the film overall was a delightful experience. Redemption Storylines, Worldviews, Edifying Themes As I mentioned in the intro, the film pays a loving tribute to moms and dads and the pricelessness of the nuclear family.
Dory suddenly remembers that she came from somewhere, that a mom and dad brought her into the world and raised her, that she has a home, and she desperately misses them.

Content advisory for this film… Rated: There is apparently a rumor online that a transgender stingray named Stingwanda is a character and that there is a same-gender couple.
There are also questions from readers about another scene at the aquarium when we see human characters aquarium visitors and what some people think are same-gender parents.
That could only be a reference to two women walking together in a park. Of course, it is odd to be saying all of this in the context of whales and sea life. Pixar made everything subtle enough and created enough blank spaces to give people room to project what they want to see in the characters.
This is a common approach from Hollywood studios because they want the film to succeed financially and therefore to appeal as broadly as possible, so they often create undefined or subtly defined archetype characters that can be anything to anyone as viewers project themselves onto the film.
A somewhat frightening giant octopus attacks Nemo, Dory and company.
The suspense builds up to it in an intense way. There are some intense moments where a young fish is sucked into a pipe.
The disputes involve consumers, farmers, biotechnology companies, governmental regulators, non-governmental organizations, and scientists. M a n i l a.
