Storyline

Bob Parr (A.K.A. Mr. Incredible), and his wife Helen (A.K.A. Elastigirl), are the world's greatest famous crime-fighting superheroes in Metroville. Always saving lives and battling evil on a daily basis. But fifteen years later, they have been forced to adopt civilian identities and retreat to the suburbs where they have no choice but to retire as superheroes to live a "normal life" with their three children Violet, Dash and Jack-Jack (who were secretly born with superpowers). Itching to get back into action, Bob gets his chance when a mysterious communication summons him to a remote island for a top secret assignment. He soon discovers that it will take a super family effort to rescue the world from total destruction. Written by Anthony Pereyra {hypersonic91@yahoo.com}

Did You Know?

Trivia

When Bob goes to the kitchen to get another plate for Dash, he is reading a newspaper. Across from the page with the story about Simon J. Paladino disappearing, there is a story with the headline "Crime Scene Reveals No Clues". The first sentence of the body of the story reads: "Last night's shoot-out was no accident. Several men were seen pointing weapons of mass destruction at each other's county's." The rest of the story is about Insuricare and their policy of never paying out on policies. See more »

Goofs

Helen believes she's alone on the plane, yet she changes into her uniform in the (undoubtedly cramped) lavatory. Why wouldn't she just change in the cabin? See more »

Quotes

Mr. Incredible: [fiddling with a clip-on microphone] Is this on? I mean, can break through walls, I just can't... can't get this on...

Crazy Credits

During the opening sequence, just before the interview with Mr. Incredible starts, the handwritten words that scroll by read "Pixar Animation Studios Production #5080" See more »

Alternate Versions

On the original (R1) DVD, Bomb Voyage's subtitles are burned in, and only translate 3 things ("Mr. Incredible...!", "Little oaf...!", and "And your outfit is totally ridiculous!"). On the Blu-ray (and accompanying DVD copy), the subtitles are player-generated, and add "IncrediBoy?" when he says that. See more »

Is it a bird, no it's a plane, no it's the Incredibles
29 May 2014 | by silva-w-piusSee all my reviews

Is it a bird, no it's a plane, no it's the Incredibles…Imagine if one crazed scientist had a colossal sized blender and put the love and affection of The Modern Family in it, then sprinkled some dysfunctional madness of Malcolm in the Middle and then added superpowers to the mix, I guarantee that what comes out still won't be a match for the crazy, adorable, high octane and utter zaniness that are the Incredibles. The dad is supper strong, the mother can stretch like taffy, and the teenage girl can become invisible and throw up force fields and the 10 year old is lightening fast, which is quiet lucky when they must come up against the rich, genius of the villainous Syndrome, who seeks to destroy the hero he once worshipped in Mr. Incredible and an the whole city along with him. Despite the film being an animation featuring a story line that was extremely fantastical, not once did I remember it was a movie. The actions scenes were spell bounding and highly imaginative. But most importantly, I really believed in these characters that spat witty sharp dialogue at each other at a furious pace, not just because they were funny, but because the characters were so believable and relatable. Subsequently it should come as to no surprise that film was nominated for a best screenplay Oscar, which is a rarity for an animated film, but this ain't just your average animated film, it's an Incredible animated film
