Fabulous Pixar Style Animations That'll Bring Out Your Inner Superhero!

Mr. Incredible (Craig T. Nelson) and Elastigirl (Holly Hunter) are superheroes loved by all until their services are no longer wanted and they are forced by the government to go into hiding for their protection.  In their attempt to blend in they move to the suburbs and start a family but the solitary life doesn’t sit so well.  As their children grow they discover they have superhero powers too.  Can this family full of superheroes really live a regular life?

I think we can all agree that the ability to choose a superhero power would be amazing!  While watching this movie we've all seen and love so well I suggest having a bit of fun.  Start off by picking your power of choice, maybe you are fast like Dash or super strong like Mr. Incredible but then create your own character name.  Create capes with pieces of fabric, pillowcases or with whatever your imagination takes you to.  Masks may be a nice touch too and could be simply done by printing them off from the computer or making your own.  Make a large sub sandwich also known as a “Hero” or pizzas that could be decorated with your superhero logo for dinner. 

Motherly Advice:  Keep in mind when choosing this one for the family that it is a PG not a G which is the rating for most of the Pixar films.  If you are opposed to violence then I will warn you that a host of weapons are used from handguns and lasers to robots that are out to destroy.  Violence is largely a part of the film in some way or another since being a Superhero puts you in the thick of things.  Suicide is discussed briefly early in the movie around legal issues regarding the Superheroes.  A villain is seen being sucked into a jet engine with the obvious implication.  Even with mushy filter on High there is some kissing and talk of adultery. The Incredibles fight crime but they are also a family and are undoubtedly always there for each other.  Definitely some adult content wrapped up in a, seemingly, kids geared movie. Kids 6 and up would probably really enjoy this but beware the family message isn’t as loud as the violent message.
