Six Degrees of Finding Nemo to 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea
Contest Hosted by Joe Crowe, October 09, 2003

Five Degrees:

Albert Brooks stars with Michael Douglas in The In-Laws who starred with Jane Fonda in China Syndrome who starred in Barbarella with Milo O'Shea who was the judge in The Verdict with James Mason who played Captain Nemo in 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. (psetnik@yahoo.com)

Four Degrees:

Willem Defoe was the voice of Gill in Finding Nemo.  He was in Platoon with Tony Todd who was in The Rock with Sean Connery, who was in League of Extraordinary Gentlemen with Captain Nemo who is, of course, from 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.  I believe that's 4 degrees, but I could be wrong.  And am I the only one that loves the 20,000 Leagues skit from SNL with Kelsey Grammar?  When Phil Hartman just won't quit yelling in that weird voice. (spider@ih8uprod.com)

I am feeling charitable today, as charitable as a little schoolgirl with pigtails and a pretty gingham dress. So I shall not harm thee for mistakenly assuming that the contest was for Nemo the character instead of Nemo the movie. Besides, you are not alone regarding the Kelsey Grammer SNL sketch.

"So it's really "20,000 Leagues ACROSS The Sea"?"

Kirk Douglas was in the '94 flick Greedy alongside Phil Hartman who was in Loaded Weapon 1 alongside Charlie Sheen who was in Platoon with William Defoe (bblatt11@aol.com)

Three Degrees:

Albert Brooks stars with Michael Douglas in The In-Laws who starred with Kirk Douglas in It Runs in the Family who appeared (and, Heaven help us, sang and danced and played the concertina) in 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.  And (see 5 degrees above) I've just beaten myself. (psetnik@yahoo.com)

Bah! That is my job, puny mortal! Now back to the wheel of pain!
