In WWII-era Europe, a father and son reunite over a drink after a former colleague passes away. They go horseback riding together. The father retires soon after and the son disappears, not to be seen again for decades.

That sounds like Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.

I don't know about the son being disabled, but the rest is Finding Nemo.

You got it.

Nemo had a tiny fin as a result of the barracuda attack when his egg was damaged. It limited his ability to swim.

You're up Syd.

A cast of thousands heads south for the winter, only to find it is really, really crowded.

Government officials go to extreme lengths to retrieve stolen documents. One of them even goes as far as torturing one of his own family members.

So... no one's guessed in like 48 hrs. Well, the thing is I came up with an alternative synopsis for the same movie before deciding to go with the one above. Since I had a hard time picking between them since I thought both were pretty clever, I'll post the other even though it will probably give it away...

A farmer manages to defeat a powerful organization attempting to destroy many acres of wilderness by listening to the voice inside his head.

So... another day goes by without a guess?

Two companions find themselves stranded in a desert after their vehicle crashes. One is highly anal retentive and thinks the other companion is crazy because he keeps insisting about being on a mission for a female figurehead.

It must be, so:

A feckless child runs away to go to an island resort, but is transformed when he has to deal with a family emergency.

Alternative:

Would that be Pinnochio?

-I'm feeling pretty ass-whooped over the whole Star Wars thing. My guessing confidence is pretty low right now.
