Corrected entry: Jacques the cleaner shrimp is in a lot of trouble. He is sharing an aquarium with Bloat, a long-spined porcupine fish. Shrimp and other crustaceans are their favourite food.
Corrected entry: When Nemo first finds himself in the fish tank, the starfish tries to report the dentist's actions but her voice is muffled by the glass pane. She has to pull away to talk. However, when the other fish watch the dentist, the starfish is talking perfectly normally and not muffled, even though she's pressed up against the glass again.
Corrected entry: After Marlin's wife, Coral, gets eaten in the beginning of the film, Marlin should have changed to a female clownfish while introducing a secondary male into the anemone. This is because clownfish are born hermaphrodites, but children watching this movie might get a little confused.wezil18
Corrected entry: Bruce The Shark could not possibly have known that sea mines explode. To him, they'd be globes of metal bobbing about. If one of the mines in that minefield had gone off - allowing Bruce to see what a mine does - they would all have exploded. The shock wave underwater would have detonated all the mines - it's called a sympathetic or adiabatic explosion. Even if Bruce survived the experience, the minefield and wrecked submarine wouldn't have.
Corrected entry: In the scene where the dentist is doing a root canal, Bloat says "rubber dam and clamp installed?" and another fish replies "yes", but when the picture goes back to the dentist and patient you can plainly see that there is not a rubber dam on the patient. A rubber dam is a large piece of latex attached to a metal frame, to keep water from the dental handpiece from going into the patient's mouth. Although all of the dental jargon in the film is precisely accurate, this device would have been very noticeable.
Corrected entry: After the Jellyfish adventure, Marlin and Dori are with the turtles. Marlin swims and sees Dori is in the turtle's shell, and she says: "29...30.", and then she starts seeking for the baby turtles. Earlier (and later) in the movie, you can notice that she forgets things in a few seconds. If she has such bad memory, how did she manage to count up to 30 without forgetting that she was playing "hide and seek" with the baby turtles?
Corrected entry: All of the fish in the tank in the dentist's office come from the ocean, so it must be a saltwater tank. However Giggles, the fish that Darla killed in the picture, is a goldfish. Goldfish live in fresh water, and wouldn't be able to live in salt water.
Corrected entry: With more than 400 dead - if you count the eggs and "Coral" - this is the Disney movie with the highest body count.
Corrected entry: When Nemo is going through the plumbing pipe, he escapes through one of the air holes at the top of the pipe. But he would've been in the bottom portion of the pipe with the water, not on top with the air. Even if he did jump at one of the holes, there wouldn't have been any suction powerful enough to pull him through.
Corrected entry: When Nemo goes into the filter for the second time to try and block it, the other aquarium fish panic and try to get him out, by using the long thin plant again. However, the only way for Nemo to reach this plant would be to block the filter, so would have no need of rescue. In other words it's impossible to escape the filter once he's in it without blocking it, so the other fishes' plan to get him out was a bit pointless.
Corrected entry: When Marlin wakes Dory whilst she is sleeping on the diver's mask, they cause the sunken submarine to slip further down into the abyss. This makes a small cloud of dust around Marlin and Dory, but we see no falling mask below it. A few seconds later we see a shot of the mask falling, but you can only just see it before it falls into the darkness - a long way beneath the submarine. I don't think that a small mask could fall that far through water in a few seconds.
Corrected entry: In the scene where the fish tank has been cleaned by the newly installed laser fish cleaner, the machine states that the water temperature is '82 degrees.' In Australia the celsius scale is used; therefore, it should be about '28 degrees.' It is actually illegal to import or sell any instrument using 'Imperial' scales. You couldn't buy a Fahrenheit thermometer if you tried.
Corrected entry: In the scene where the turtles are migrating, it shows hundreds of turtles. But turtles are solitary migrators.
Corrected entry: This error relates to the whale that gives Dory and Marlin a ride near the movie's end. A whale's spout is actually water vapor from its lungs. It's a common misconception that whales take water through their mouth and squirt it through their blowholes. While this may or may not be physically possible, it's not done on a regular basis at all - it would be akin to a human snorting water out his nose.
Corrected entry: After Dory drops the mask into the dark black abyss, Dory and Marlin swim vertically down to get it. When they see the speck of light, they are looking down at it and therefore should be swimming down to reach it. But when Dory and Marlin appear, they are swimming across the ocean bed to reach it. How did they reach the ocean bed and swim across to see it if they were swimming down and couldn't see anything in the first place?
Corrected entry: Near the beginning of the movie when Nemo goes on his first day of school, the teacher gives them a tour of the ocean. He tells all the fish to get on his back and they all do. But when the teacher starts moving and turning, the fish aren't holding on to him (there is a clear gap between the fish and the teacher). How, then, could they miraculously keep pace with the teacher.Josh Appelbaum
Corrected entry: When the mimicker fish talk to Dory, they tell her to ride on the EAC for about 3 weeks. At the same time, Nemo is told he only has 4 days before Darla comes. When Darla does come, Marlin and Dory have already exited the EAC and are already in the dentist's office at the same time Darla comes.Lin Miaw
Corrected entry: In the scene when Bruce is chasing Dory and Marlin, the mask gets stuck in Bruce's mouth. At first, the mask is in the left side of his mouth, but when Dory and Marlin are in the hole in the sub where the torpedo is, the mask is in the right side of his mouth. Once the torpedo is released into Bruce's mouth, the mask is on the left side again.
Corrected entry: The address on the mask says that the dentist is in Sydney, although he doesn't actually live in the city of Sydney. You see, the opera house is located on the southern side of the Sydney harbour bridge and you can see it when there are shots looking out of the dentist's window on the opposite side of the harbour. So in actual fact, the dentist's address should be either North Sydney, Kirribilli, or Cremorne as these are the suburbs on the north side of the harbour that would have those views of Sydney harbour. Even the city of Sydney has different towns within it so it would of been impossible to find Nemo with the information on the mask if it hadn't been for the pelican.
Corrected entry: When Nemo gets stuck inside the tube (after the pebble dislodges), the tank fish band to free him. As the others bring the plant to push up the tube, Bubbles uses his tail to slap off a cap on the bottom of the tube that was not there previously. Further, it never reappears in the film from that point on.
Corrected entry: In the scene when Nigel the Pelican tells the Seagulls to "Shut Up," he overhears a conversation between a few pelicans nearby talking about Nemo. So he quickly runs to them and wants in on the info. All he heard was "Last I heard he was heading towards the harbour" before he quickly flew to the tank where Nemo is in. When he gets there he talks about Marlin travelling to Sydney, but he also talks about him battling sharks and jellyfish. Not only that he knows his name "Marlin." When all that he heard from the group of pelicans was "Last I heard he was heading towards the harbour".
Corrected entry: In the scene in the fish tank where they all say where they are from the starfish says that it is from ebay which is untrue because you are not allowed to sell animals on ebay.
Corrected entry: At the end of the movie when the fish are floating in the ocean waiting for the starfish, how come the bags they're in aren't sinking? Even if they did have air at the top why are they at the top of the bag where the air is?
Corrected entry: Throughout the film, they show the fish going under the water to breathe when they are looking out over the surface. When Dory and Marlin are on the dock (out of the water) they are panting heavily, breathing in and out. Fish with lungs and gills? If they are then why did they need water for air earlier?
