Sex & Nudity


Elastigirl fears that Bob is having an affair.

Mirage tends to speak in a flirtatious way.

Syndrome catches the Incredibles and is surprised that Mr. Incredible married Elastigirl. He then looks at their kids and says "And got busy!"

Mr. Incredible and Elastigirl repeatedly kiss and playfully "goose" each other.

Elastigirl seductively checks out her rear in a mirror.

A woman wears an outfit that reveals a bit of cleavage.

Violence & Gore


Flying bullets. Exploding vehicles and buildings. Careening cars and RVs. The violence is intense and prolonged; the body count higher than many parents might be prepared for.

A superhero sees a skeleton, and realizes that's all that's left of one of his superhero friends.

Several rockets chase an airplane, the pilot swerves and spins and dodges them, while two passengers are thrown around the cabin; the rockets hit the plane and the three (a woman, a boy and a girl superheroes) are thrown into the air screaming, the woman expands into a parachute and holds the boy and girl as they descend into the water below, and finally a large part of the plane comes down into the water near them.

A man kidnaps a baby, flies into the air toward a plane, the baby cries, then bursts into flames, then into a red demonic creature with many sharp teeth; he crawls on the man, and the man drops the baby; the baby is caught in mid-air, a car is thrown toward the plane, and a man is sucked into the jet engine of the plane, the plane explodes, and it comes down toward the ground where four superheroes stand under a protective force-field.

A man attempts suicide by jumping off of a building while others watch. He is stopped by Mr. Incredible, and later sues him for damages. The man says he did not want to be saved, and is seen with bandaging around his neck.

A man (superhero) grabs a man and throws him through several walls (we see the man in a hospital, covered in bandages).

One sequence shows a number of superheroes being pulled to their death because their capes became entangled in something or other (one is pulled into a jet engine, one is caught on a rocket that shoots into the air, etc.).

A superhero holds a man who's strapped with bombs off the floor, the man throws one of his bombs that sticks to a boy, and the boy jumps out a window and flies (with jet propelled shoes); the superhero jumps and hangs onto the boy's leg, he grabs the bomb off the boy, it then falls onto train tracks, and it explodes as the train approaches, while the superhero is hit hard by the train but keeps it from falling off the track.

A superhero is launched in a pod out of a plane and lands toward an island below, a robot lunges at him with large metallic tentacles and claws, the robot picks him up and tosses him into a tree, and slashes his arm (we see a streak of blood).

A robot with large metallic tentacles and claws turns into a large sphere, it rolls toward a superhero as he runs, he is shoved toward a ledge over lava, and he throws the robot into the lava but it gets out, grabs the superhero, holds him in two clamps, and stretches him; the superhero gets inside the robot, and the robot begins hitting itself until it destroys its own mechanisms and falls over motionless.

A robot comes down toward a boy and girl superhero and nearly crushes them -- the boy runs and the robot shoots at him and one of the robot's arms is knocked off; a man then hurls the arm as a missile which goes through the robot, causing it to explode and fall to the ground motionless.

A robot rolls through a city and causes damage by crashing into buildings.

Mr. Incredible jumps onto the car of a monorail, throws two men off (one over a cliff), he picks up the car and throws it some distance where it lands on two other men (we see them motionless), and he throws a coconut that hits another on the head and knocks him out.

Violet hits a guard with a stick, he kicks and shoots at her, Dash beats him up, the guard shoots at the two superheroes, and Violet puts up a force-field and they roll away.

Mr. Incredible is captured and restrained by his wrists and ankles, he is then tortured with electricity for information. Might be too intense for kids.

A man (superhero) places his hands on a woman's throat and begins to choke her for the death of his family. He releases her after she tells him they survived.

Mr. Incredible is thrown around and against rock walls by a robot with large metallic claws, a man surrounds him in a force-field, picks him up and throws him through the air; the superhero jumps off a ledge into water far below, and the man throws a bomb in the water that explodes and the force sends the superhero into a cave where he finds the skeletal remains of another superhero.

Mr. Incredible in his car nearly hits an elderly woman crossing a street, he gets out of his car, pulls a tree out of the ground, shakes it to get her cat out of the tree, and slams the tree across the roadway to stop a car being chased by police -- the car crashes into the tree and the driver slumps out the window.

Elastigirl is caught in automatic doors: first her leg is caught, she stretches to retrieve a pass card, then her middle section is squeezed in another set of doors, but she manages to punch two guards, and kick another guard who shoots his gun hitting two other guards.

Mr. Incredible, restrained by his wrists and ankles, grabs ahold of Mirage and threatens to crush her (he claims that it'd be like breaking a toothpick) if he is not released.



Startled, a character blurts, "What the ...," then trails off before finishing. Interjections of "my god" and "jeez" pop out of characters' mouths a number of times.


A character consumes (or is about to consume) wine and a mixed drink. One of Syndrome's henchmen opens a bottle of champagne while playing a sadistic drinking game with his comrades. A couple innocuous alcohol references.

Rating: 3

The movie can be scary and intense for some kids at certain times...hence the PG rating.

Many bad goons attack two children.

The robotic droid that Syndrome creates with his threats and actions may scare younger viewers.

Suggested Rating: PG for Action Violence & Some Mild Thematic Elements

Total: 14/50

An idea of how accurate the TECE (below) is: 5-10 is a little-kid suitable, G-Rated type of film (i.e. Care Bears, Sleeping Beauty); 10-15 is going to be a little harsher, but not by much (i.e. This); 15-20 could be pretty high up there (i.e. Indiana Jones), 20-25 is going to pretty darn adult (i.e. The Dark Knight); 25-30 is going to be a film most likely not suitable for anyone under 17(i.e. Braveheart); 30-40 is going to be an absolutely, positively adults-only film (i.e. Saving Private Ryan). 40 and up is pretty much high R / NC-17 (i.e. Pulp Fiction)
