Storyline

In a dark room, Agent Rick Dicker interrogates Kari, a young girl with braces. He asks what happened. Kari explains that she was babysitting for an infant, Jack-Jack, who seems able to levitate, float, pass through walls, catch fire, and cause havoc. Kari stays nimble but barely holds on until an odd young man with orange hair and an "S" on his shirt rings the bell. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Quotes

Kari: [pitch black] Wow, it's dark in here.
[Rick Dicker turns the light on]
Kari: Wow! And now it's too bright!
Agent Rick Dicker: File 82-7-0-2. Agent Rick Dicker interrogating. State your name, please.
Kari: Kari McKeen. It's like Carrie, only with a K instead of a C, and an "ah" instead of an "a", only one R, and an I instead of an I-E.
Agent Rick Dicker: Tell me about the incident.
Kari: Well... It started out like any normal sitting gig, you know, with the reassuring of the parent and all.

A wonderfully distinctive voice with an expanded opportunity to shine!
5 May 2005 | by gklinglesmithSee all my reviews

I am consistently impressed by Pixar films. I have usually seen the 'parent' film (in this case "The Incredibles") which prompts me to buy the DVD. I particularly enjoy the shorts for the most profound of reasons...they make me laugh. Jack Jack Attack does just that. I laugh until I cry...every time I watch. It's a good story line with good writing and (of course) good animation. But most of all, I was delighted to see & hear one of my favorite cameo characters from "The Incredibles": Kari, the babysitter (as voiced by Bret Parker). Ms. Parker exhibits great comedic timing and character and has a wonderfully distinctive voice with an expanded opportunity to shine in Jack Jack Attack. The only other voice that tickles me so consistently is that of the great Bert Lahr as the Cowardly Lion in The Wizard of Oz. Now, that's pretty exalted company! Bravo, Pixar! Keep 'um coming...and let's hear more from Bret Parker. (You go, girl!)
