Thoughts on Go Fish

Go Fish is a cute little animation that follows a group of fish friends. As they look to go on an adventure to try and save their coral reef. Putting together a group of different number of fish species, which tend to live together.

This follows the animated family friendly idea of the youngster member of a family wanting to go on their own adventure with friends. Which will see them taking on a new series of threats they wouldn’t normally attempt. We get some education involved with how different fish behave and survive. Which will be good for the younger audience, as well as having a deeper meaning about the human involvement in the oceans. This is one of the easiest to watch family films, that will get plenty of enjoyment for the family. Holding the attention of the younger audience with the shorter runtime.

Final Thoughts Go Fish is a fun family film that is short and sweet.
