"I felt the need to point out that this is not some cheap direct-to-video ripoff of "Shark's Tale" and "Finding Nemo." This movie, correctly titled "Help! I'm a Fish" was produced and released in Europe, originally in Danish in 2000 and later in English, in 2001. It has taken it a long time to come to America, and to see it retitled and with such an awful cover makes me cry. I own the British release of this DVD as well as the original soundtrack, and I love them both. I *highly* recommend this film, which is intelligent and emotional and intense in places. I was captivated from beginning to end on my first viewing."
A great kid's movie, don't let the packaging fool you...

"This movie is a hidden treasure. The packaging and the lack of extra content on the DVD make this look like it is going to be another cheap kiddie cartoon with a low budget and no production values.
Then you start the movie, and it blows you away! This movie is every bit as good as most of the Disney movies we own, and significantly better than the Disney direct-to-DVD movies. My daughters love it, my youngest sings along to the songs, and it is one of those rare movies that I don't mind sitting down and watching with them.
The music is, for the most part, very different than you'll find in most kid-targeted movies, and surprisingly good. The story is fun, the animation top-notch.
This is one that my kids have watched over and over again, and I highly recommend it for your video library if you have younger children."
