The Incredibles

This Pixar comic-book adventure (2004) is fun for the first half hour, as the world's superheroes are forced into retirement by personal-injury lawsuits and assigned new identities by the government. In a sort of big-screen New Yorker cartoon, the barrel-chested Mr. Incredible lives a life of quiet desperation, dividing his time between an insurance company cubicle and a vanilla tract home he shares with the former Elastigirl and their three moppets. The fun hardens into Fun after he's lured out of retirement and imprisoned in a remote island compound, though the sleek computer animation is spellbinding as usual. Brad Bird (The Iron Giant) wrote and directed; with the voices of Craig T. Nelson, Holly Hunter, and Samuel L. Jackson.
