The Incredibles

Starring Craig T. Nelson, Holly Hunter,
Samuel L. Jackson, Jason Lee
Written and Directed by Brad Bird

IN SHORT: See it. [Rated PG for some violent and potentially upsetting scenes. 121 minutes]

It's been a long standing marketing gimmick in the comic book biz to team up characters whose paths would otherwise not cross. When the reasoning behind a brave and bold style team up works, it makes fanboys delirious. Applying that twisted bit of opening paragraph reasoning to animation and you get The Incredibles, teaming The Iron Giant writer/director Brad Bird with the new 'toon genius machine of Pixar. Take the family. 'nuff said. end of review.






waitasec. You mean you want us to fill this entire page????

When your world is in danger and you need someone to lend a hand and keep your butt covered, who ya gonna call? You spend your entire life accumulating an expensive collection of knick knacks and then one morning, after that once a month treat for the kids at the $3.99 all you can eat breakfast at Dennys, you come home to find that invaluable set of stuffed iguanas has skittled off, south of the border. Who ya gonna call?

Why, an insurance salesman, of course! That's where Bob Parr (Craig T. Nelson) comes in, with fifteen years of in-the-trenches experience to make sure you get just the kind of coverage you need. Bob is, to put it simply, "incredible!" . . . fast with his pencil, built like a tank, gee, you'd think he could be a superhero if those spandex clad crimebusters hadn't been outlawed fifteen years earlier.

Welcome to the world of The Incredibles, where wife Helen (Holly Hunter), awkward teen daughter Violet (Sarah Vowell) -- you know the type; she'd rather be invisible, and son Dash (Spencer Fox) who's nigh close to hyperactive join daddy Bob Parr aka Mr. Incredible (Craig T. Nelson) in a secret life as superheroes in a world that doesn't have superheroes anymore . . . unless you count Frozon (Samuel L Jackson ) who breaks the law every time he goes out to save the day. The world of the Incredibles is put to the test when an honest-to-goodness supervillain called Syndrome (Jason Lee) rises to wreak havoc. Syndrome has got a major chip on his shoulder as he used to be Incredi-Boy and, well, he didn't get any respect.

With guest voices John Ratzenberger, Wallace Shawn, and creator Brad Bird filling out the cast, take the kids or take a date. That's all we need to say.

On average, a first run movie ticket will run you Ten Bucks. Were Cranky able to set his own price to The Incredibles, he would have paid . . .
