    I realize that "Nemo" is supposed to be some kind of marketing synergy, but the name goes to Odyssey. That is the name that Odysseus offers to Polyphemus when he blinds him (literally, "no one").

    Jules Verne uses the name because it had been Odysseus's pseudonym when fighting with Poseidon's son.

    Now, if they want to stick with explorers or with anti-heroes or with literary works, then that's fine, but if they want children's movies, then it's stupid.

    Everyone is innocent of some crime.
