Finding Nemo is a great film and you should rush out to see it this weekend whether you like 3D or not.
Most little girls who are not outside playing in the dirt with the boys are busy fantasizing about growing up to be a princess, so the next logical step in that train of thought when Disney classics mix in is which Disney princess they would like to be.

The two happen to fall in each others laps and are able to help one another out through a little fantasy twist and imagination. [Read more...]
