Flashback Friday-The Incredibles (2004)

The best animated films are those that appeal to young and old.

In 2004, The Incredibles hit theaters. It’s been 15 years since Bob and Helen Parr, aka Mr. Incredible and Elastigirl (voiced by Craig T. Nelson and Holly Hunter) have left the superhero world. They appear to live a life of suburban normalcy. But when Mr. Incredible receives a communication that the world needs him, he springs into action with his, his children and Lucius Best aka Frozone (voiced by Samuel L. Jackson). Can they save the world once more?

The thing that I remember about this film is that not only that is funny and entertaining, but the jokes are on multiple levels. The kids in the audience get one type of joke and the adults in the audience get another kind of joke. I also appreciate that Elastigirl is as much a superhero as her husband.

I recommend it.
