After the Total Fail of my Lebowski pick, The Husband picked The Incredibles (2004) the next day. It has always been a family favorite, and we've seen it several times. It hasn't held up as well to repeat viewings for the rest of us as it has for The Husband. The Younger Son wandered off after it started, and I'm writing up blog posts to publish later this month. It is a fun film. My favorite scenes are Edna Mode designing the costumes. Edna has her own Facebook page.
Rolling Stone concludes, "Bird has crafted a film —one of the year's best— that doesn't ring cartoonish, it rings true." Roger Ebert, The BBC reviewer, and Locus Online like it. The New York Times likes everything but the ending. Rotten Tomatoes gives it a 97% score.
