Sex & Nudity

  • A brief kiss between 2 characters
  • Characters of various genders wear spanedex leotards (obviously, because it's a superhero movie)
  • None, not even any suggestive dialogue. A teen is seen trying to get a date to the movies; fairly benign.
  • Elastigirl (Helen Parr) wears a very revealing spandex suit that shows the curves of her breasts, thighs and buttocks, as well as a slender appearance.

Violence & Gore

  • A man tells the story of how his father was shot by criminals. Video of father turning around scared and a zoom on a gun firing.
  • Dark and Intense Superhero Violence, but no blood is seen or mentioned in the movie.
  • Moderate animated violence with no blood, gore or major injuries. There is stylized fight sequences, but with no lasting pervasive violence. Cruelty some characters possess may factor into the situations where some are harmed unjustly. It may upset young kids.

Profanity

  • "Oh my God" is said at least twice, as well as "Oh my Lord" is uttered once, and "crap" is heard at least twice.
  • The words "Hell" and "Damn" are each used once in the movie.
  • Very mild language is used, such as "heck" and "darn".
  • The word "hell" is used by Evelyn Deavor.
  • Evelyn Deavor says "I'll be damned."
  • A character almost says the f word but catches herself. This will go over most kids' minds.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Adult characters are shown consuming alcoholic beverages in a few scenes but remain sober throughout.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • EPILEPSY WARNING! This movie involves multiple scenes with strobe effects--some lasting as long as a minute. The time stamps are around the 1 hr 10 min mark, a VERY intense one around 1 hr 24 min that lasts about forty seconds, and one directly after a scene involving a group photo.
  • The appearance of the villain is frightening. The villain's introduction is dark, suspenseful, and disturbing.
  • At the beginning of the film, a boy is briefly shown being memory-wiped, and he appears to have been knocked unconscious. Might be slightly worrying to some younger viewers.
  • Much darker and scarier than its predecessor, with darker themes like the loss of a parent (either one of them or both), family issues and dictatorship, a darker tone, some scary and suspenseful moments, and much more violence and action compared to the first film. Becaus of these reasons, this film is without Pixar's darkest film, being even darker than "Coco", which the darkest film of the animation studio back then.
  • This sequel is much darker than the original. The main villain uses nefarious tactics some might find disturbing. Because it is animated and essentially a family friendly film, children over 10 shouldn't find this movie too frightening or disturbing.

Spoilers

The Parents Guide items below may give away important plot points.

Violence & Gore

  • Helen's fight with Screenslaver involves the two kicking, thrashing, and violently tossing each other around the strobe-effect-lit room with Helen being viciously shocked and tortured. Brutal & Intense.
  • Helen pursues an escaping Evelyn Deavor, stowing away in her jet. Deavor shuts off the oxygen in the plane, causing Helen to become delirious and nearly suffocate to death, while Deavor continually kicks her away, violently knocking her back. Intense/Violent.
  • The opening sequence involves a villain called The Underminer drilling holes beneath the cityscape, causing large debris and skyscrapers to collapse with the civilians in peril, and The Incredibles rushing to stop him. The Underminer and Mr. Incredible get into a brutal fist fight. Amidst the chaos, the villain' monsterous vehicular drill almost demolishes a capital building. This entire sequence is visceral and intense.
  • Evelyn tortures Helen by encasing her in a sub-degree freezing chamber while strapped to a chair. Helen is seen pale-white with her nose and cheeks red and her body quivering in pain as a result.
  • Jack-Jack is watching a scene on a movie about a burglar trying to steal from people and he notices a raccoon stealing a piece of meat from their garbage and eating it and Jack-Jack recognizes the problem and he fights the raccoon such as slapping, punching, kicking, when he's on fire, laser beam coming from his eyes, Jack-Jack turning into rubber and the raccoon attempts to rip him, and they punch each other and Jack-Jack multiplies then piles the raccoon until Bob stops him.

Profanity

  • Frozone says an incomplete use of "What the hell/heck/frick" as a response to Jack-Jack's teleportation powers.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Scenes of superheroes turned to villains vs. kids are scary to children.
  • Seeing Helen beat up and strangle Bob, only to force a mind control visor onto him is rather upsetting.
  • Bob has an emotional outburst at his children, dealing with how stressed and confused he is. He has dark shadows under his eyes from not sleeping. It is played for comedy, though in Bob's position, you feel sorry for him.
  • In some scenes, super heroes are wearing hypnotic glasses to do violence to others by putting glasses on others. This is very frightening to young children when seeing these superheroes for the first time.
  • Winston tells the story about his father getting killed by criminals and her mother dying from the broken heart. This scene is VERY upsetting and dark.
