Finding Nemo

Nemo, the clown fish from the great barrier reef, has lost his Mother in the ocean. One day he is captured by divers and taken to Sydney, where his is kept in a fish tank in the office of a dentist. Nemo's father searches for him, throughout the ocean, and the story is all about how Marlin found his son.

Factual error: When the fish tank has been cleaned by the newly installed laser fish cleaner, the machine states that the water temperature is '82°.' In Australia the Celsius scale is used; therefore, it should be about '28°.' Australia is 100% metric and has been since 1974! Nobody in Australia - nobody, anywhere, any time since 1974, uses imperial measures. There is absolutely no question of the dentist having an imperial thermometer or expressing himself in° Fahrenheit. It is actually illegal to import or sell any instrument using 'Imperial' scales. You couldn't buy a Fahrenheit thermometer if you tried. (01:14:30)
