Everyone’s favorite family of superheroes is back in “Incredibles 2” – but this time Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is in the spotlight, leaving Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell) and Dash (voice of Huck Milner) to navigate the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life.
It’s a tough transition for everyone, made tougher by the fact that the family is still unaware of baby Jack-Jack’s emerging superpowers. (Yes, Jack-Jack has the most adorable superpowers that will blow you away!)
When a new villain hatches a brilliant and dangerous plot, the Incredible family and Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) must find a way to work together again—which is easier said than done, even when they’re all Incredible.
I mean, take a look at Elastigirl on this bike, aka Elasticycle. She’s called on to help bring the Supers back, and I think we can all agree that she’s hot, right? But wait until you see her in action!
While Elastigirl is called out for a mission, Bob is left to navigate the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life at home, giving all the props to stay-at-home Moms for the busy roles they play on a daily basis, with little frustration along the way. (Hear Craig T. Nelson’s thoughts on the way our society is changing math!) I agree with Mr. Incredible when he says “they can’t change math!”
My Thoughts On Incredibles 2
We have waited 14 long years for a sequel to The Incredibles and let me tell you, it was SO worth it! During the film, you will laugh, you will find compassion and you will cheer on Elastigirl as she faces those who find their way into her path. You’ll love Jack-Jack’s powers, fall in love with Dash’s need for pushing buttons and side with Violet when she goes on a date.
This is the perfect family film for summer, and I love that it comes out Father’s Day weekend! (Take Dad to the movies, but as Edna would say, “no capes!”)
*The film is rated PG and does contain a few choice words/adult slang terms. It’s nothing more than children hear on a regular basis, and you probably won’t even notice the few times those words are said. Also, there are two instances where Elastigirl can be seen with a cocktail in her hand. She deserved it, but adults are the only ones who will realize it’s a drink. Children will probably think it’s a Shirley Temple. My children never even bat an eye at this.
