Okay, so I loved “Finding Nemo” so much that I didn’t think the folks at Pixar could top it.
I was right. Now don’t get me wrong, “The Incredibles” was enjoyable enough, but I didn’t love it – and I really really wanted to love it. Parts of it were entertaining (Edna was hilarious), but I admit that I was a little disappointed.
I don’t see how this movie would necessarily be interesting to kids under age 8. Seriously. It didn’t have much “kid factor” stuff in there like the other Pixar movies have had. The kids in the theater today certainly enjoyed themselves, but I don’t see “The Incredibles” as having the power to maintain profits like “Finding Nemo” did – “Nemo” is the kind of movie kids see over and over again. “Incredibles” is not. At least, I don’t think so, and if they DO break the Pixar record for most profitable film, then I’m happy for them.
And their promo for the next movie, “Cars” – one big UGH. I don’t see many people except for Nascar fans going to that one.
“The Incredibles” gets 3 1/2 out of five stars.
