Go Fish - DVD Review

A fun, heartwarming under-the-sea journey for the entire family, Go Fish arrives on DVD, Digital, and On Demand today, November 19, from Lionsgate. Winner of the Dove Seal of Approval for all ages and featuring the voice talents of iJustine, Mark Hamill, and Ron Perlman, this delightful film about friendship, adventure, and helping the environment “teaches kids how humble wisdom can make you” (The Dove Foundation). The Go Fish DVD includes a music video for “Go Fish (Side by Side)” – an original song performed by pop singer Kate Steinberg – and a digital comic book and is available for the suggested retail price of $14.98.


All his life, plucky parrotfish Alex has dreamed of being a superhero. He gets his chance when a mysterious flood of black goop erupts near his coral reef. As Alex and his pals — a sea horse, an eel, and a blowfish — swim off to confront the menace and save their home, they face a sunken ship with hidden treasure, an abandoned airplane, angry sharks, and an undersea volcano. This thrilling, funny family tale stars Mark Hamill (Star Wars franchise), iJustine (“The Annoying Orange”), and Ron Perlman (Hellboy franchise).

My Review:

With colorful animation and spirited sea life, Go Fish is a film that most people, especially young viewers, will enjoy.  Starring a parrotfish named Alex and his pals, this movie is mostly fast-paced with likable characters.  It is rated PG for some rude language.  There are no overly scary scenes, although the sharks are somewhat menacing.  Go Fish shows that having courage can help overcome fears, and having friends can help solve problems.  There's also the underlying message of how polluting our waters can wreck havoc on our marine life.

Mark Hamill and Ron Perlman? I'm in. This may be my new favorite movie with the title "Go Fish."
