:lol: I’ll sum it up:

Oscar-nominated for Best Original Screenplay. It’s not just for kids.
Poignant commentaries on society - fear of “different people”, fear of aliens, great people being expected to conform and be “normal”
Slick James Bond-like imagery and background score

Smart usage of the Parr family’s superpowers as personal metaphors:
Bob/Mr. Incredible - Super strong, indestructable, supports and protects the family,
Helen/Elasti-Girl:  Stretched out, multi-tasking, has to be flexible with everyone’s needs
Violet/Invisi-Girl:  Angst-filled teen girl, feels invisible/unappreciated, scared of her emotions, forces people away
Daschle/Dash:  Young, full of speed/energy, but with no focus or direction
Baby Jack-Jack: Newborn, unlimited possibilities, can become anything he wants

Lots of laughs and intellectual entertainment!
:ebert: :ebert:

:ebert:   The Incredibles is one of my top five movies ever, animated or not. Your defense is spot on. Agree with the James Bond imagery but there's also a classic Johnny Quest vibe too, which I love. Also, in addition to the social commentaries you listed, though similar to the expectation to conform, is the critique of society's celebration of mediocrity, while decrying the exceptional:

"Everyone is special Dash"... "That's just another way of saying no one is!"

"I can't believe you don't want to go to your own son's graduation!"... "It's not a graduation! He's moving from the 4th grade to the 5th grade! It's psychotic; they keep finding new ways to celebrate mediocrity, but if someone is genuinely exceptional..."

What a fantastic movie!

The same social commentary is found in The Trees.  Not only are great people/trees chasized for being great, they're legally forced to be mediocre.

Just imagine if Einstein and all the other Greats had been forced to not be great.  Our world would be a pathetic pile of mediocrity, unoriginality, and boredom.
