The boring machine used by the Underminer is an almost exact replica of the Mole used by International Rescue in the original puppet series.

The Black Hole (1979)
Syndrome's robot features spinning "claws" that are a visual and functional match for those on the Maximilian robot.

The "Frozone (Sam Jackson)/Water cooler/Cop pointing gun" scene is a clear reference to the "Zeus (Sam Jackson)/Phone/Cop pointing gun", including some of the dialogue
Judge Dredd (1995)
Scene in a huge room with a catwalk that leads to a lone computer.
Mallrats (1995)
When trying to remember Incrediboy's real name, Mr. Incredible mistakenly calls him Brody, the name of Jason Lee's character in Mallrats.
