The Incredibles

ElastigirlI was incred­i­bly impressed with The Incred­i­bles, despite my well-known aver­sion to ani­mat­ed kid­die-fare. I nev­er saw the Toy Sto­ries, and Find­ing Nemo’s sto­ry was stale and Albert Brooks was insuf­fer­able, but this film is dif­fer­ent — it’s fun­ny, unex­pect­ed, and mul­ti-lay­ered. It’s part James Bond, part Spy Kids (nev­er saw those either), and part Rocky V — that is, what hap­pens after the glo­ry days have passed you by. The good news is, this film is noth­ing like Rocky V.

What can I say? I’m a suck­ah for Hol­ly Hunter and her grav­el­ly Geor­gia drawl. For a con­trast to her moth­er­ly warmth in this film, go rent Crash… talk about range.
