Schuster Sister Shenanigans: Finding Nemo

nemo

My sister/partner-in-crime, Laura Jo, and I have texted about three epic trilogies: Star Wars, Jurassic Park, and Indiana Jones. What could possibly come next?! Well, we’ve decided to take on a juggernaut—a production company we can only chip away at little by little because there are so very many movies in its wheelhouse. That’s right. We’re taking on freaking Disney.

An endeavor this massive will take time, but we have a strategy: take on three, step away and do something else, then take on three more. If every other round of Shenanigans is Disney rather than every round, surely that daunting Mickey Mouse won’t beat us…right? Guys…RIGHT?? Well, I guess we’ll find out. Anyway, we’re starting with three of our favorite Pixar films. Let’s kick it off with Finding Nemo!

LJ: OMG DIVER

C: AHHHH TERRIFYING

C: LEAVE THE FISH ALONE YOU GOLIATH

  1. I feel like I just watched this with my sisters. “Presh” is a definite thing of theirs.
    Also, near the beginning you accused Nemo of being angsty – picturing a sequel in which he wears eye liner and has a pierced fin.

  2. I ❤ Grumpy Cat. Another fantastic job from you ladies again! I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed this film, it's adorable, and you used wonderful pictures and gifs.

  3. Hehe – this bit: “WHAT DOES DISNEY HAVE AGAINST WHOLE FAMILIES FOR CHRIST SAKE???” Lol. Finding Nemo really IS extra brutal… 😉 Love this movie so much! And Pearl inking! So adorable. You two ROCK. Love the images & gifs for this one, too. Hilarious! 🙂

  4. Nemo is one of my most favouritest hangover movies. It makes me feel so much better and forget all about my bad lifestyle choices. I love these sisterly shenanigans. Great fun. 😀

    (Also, I missed you, my bestest pug pal.)

    • …V? V?!?!?! OMG V!!!!!!!

      *pauses 20 minutes for happy dance*

      Are you back for realsies?!?! You’d better not be pugging me–erm–PUNKing me. I’ve missed you, too, lady!!!

      Also, I love that this is a hangover film for you. That is perfect. Hahaha.

      • Yus! I took a break from work so now I have time to do… things. Like sleep. But also watch lots of TV and maybe do some blogging. 😀 Case in point!: It’s 5am AND I’M STILL UP! I’m really pushing the envelope.

        I have so many pug pics to catch up on. I can’t waaaiiit.
