    How can you not love Dory? Our own lovable reed dweller who serves as a faithful companion to clownfish of finding Nemo by singing happy song, just keepin' swimming, and FILLING OUR MINDS WITH LIES. Today on Film Theory, we analyze the symptoms displayed on screen by Dory to see whether her symptoms would actually align with her condition of retrograde amnesia, or whether she's been lying to us all along...

                About 1 year ago I was looking for something to watch, then I found a small little channel with only 17000 subscribers called film theory. One of them I know that soon in about a year it would become a big big big YouTube channel with 7 million subscribers! And there is your history lesson for today

                        Kinda sucks how this is completely de bunked after the movie finding Dory because there are flashbacks to her as a child having these mental issues, she would have been too small to care and she had no reason to fake it.

                                        She doesn’t have anterograde amnesia. She gets Retrograde amnesia very very often

                                                        Dory should be suffering from retrograde and anterograde amnesia because she has short term memory loss and she can’t remember her parents

Matt, you’ve proved you’re own logic of Dory NOT having short term monotype loss incorrectly in almost the entire video! you said in the beginning of the video she doesn’t have short term memory loss, and then you showed the internet that she DOES because she forgets everyone’s name, she does dangerous things, and she can read English. Really?? I know your better than that!!
                                                                                                But that’s not all; Dory did find Nemo and bring him back to Marlin. But, didn’t she find other things too?? Did she find a tiny Jellyfish that Marlin didn’t see before “Squishy” stung here??
                                                                                                Also she can read English but not well, she said in the movie,” look here’s something ESCAPE(es cop e) I wonder what that means, it’s spelled just like the word escape...” she can spell too!! She said (was cop e) is spelled like escape how could she know that If she can’t spell?? Please do another theory, and don’t mess it up like this one!!

It’s not hard to see! I just saw this video and I never said it was terrible but it needs a lot of work. It’s only my opinion!! And don’t take it personal
