While the Parr family has accepted its collective calling as superheroes, the fact remains that their special heroism is still illegal. After they are arrested after unsuccessfully trying to stop the Underminer, their future seems bleak. However, the wealthy Deavor siblings of Devtech offer new hope with a bold project to rehabilitate the public image and legal status of Supers, with Elastigirl being assigned on point to be the shining example. Now having agreed for now to stay at home to care for the kids, Mr. Incredible finds domestic life a daunting challenge, especially with baby Jack-Jack’s newly emerged powers making him almost impossible to manage. However, Elastigirl soon has her own concerns dealing with the menace of a new supervillain, Screenslaver, who is wreaking havoc with his mind control abilities. Now, Elastigirl must solve the mystery of this enemy, who has malevolent designs on the world with the Parr family and friends key targets of this evil.
Every Tuesday, my family chooses a movie and heads to AMC’s $5 Tuesday movies and last weeks movie was Incredibles 2. I’m not even going to lie, I’ve been looking forward to this movie all freaking year and I’m happy to report that it was everything that I hoped it would be and a little more.
So, we’re back in the Parr’s world and they’ve come to terms with their superhero powers but they have to keep everything under wraps because superheroes are illegal. They’re staying in a motel and trying to figure out their next move after an undercover superhero save goes bad. They need to get back to work, the kids need to get back to school and they need to find a more permanent place to live. When ElastiGirl is offered a superhero job that will help change the world’s view of superheroes, ElastiGirl goes to work and Bob becomes a stay at home Dad.
Most of the movie is set around ElastiGirl trying to save the world without making a huge mess and Bob trying to figure out how to be there for his kids and handle the home life. Their worlds are flipped on their heads because Helen is usually the one that stays home with the kids but I really enjoyed seeing the two of them figure things out as the movie progressed. Seeing Bob realize that Helen’s Mom gig is hard was funny and it was heartwarming to see him develop relationships with his kids. And seeing Helen kick ass at every turn was fantastic.
I loved seeing everyone again and it’s hard to pick a favorite because I adored them all…well, except for the bad guys.
Jack Jack seriously stole the movie though. He had me laughing in every single scene that he was in and finally seeing what his powers were was freaking great. I loved seeing Violet again and seeing her be a hormonal teenager was great fun, especially seeing Bob deal with that on top of Dash’s commo core Math problems and his overall billy bad ass tendencies, it was all just one laugh out loud moment after another and I was so here for it. When the movie ended, I was super happy with the entire thing. I loved seeing the Parr’s kick ass again and take down the bad guys. I loved seeing FroZone, meeting the new Supers and just everything. I really enjoyed this movie and highly recommend.
