The Incredibles

Mr. Incredible (voice of Craig T. Nelson) is a superhero who was forced into hiding and retirement because of legal and liability issues. Now a frustrated cubical worker, he leaps at an unexpected chance to don his mask and Spandex suit once more. But his reckless desire for adventure threatens to expose his cover and put his family members (who also have "incredible" capabilities) into harm's way. Get the movie review and more. »

DVD Notes: The Incredibles

DVD Release Date: March 15, 2005

Invite this family of superheroes into your home on a two-disc set, which offers commentary by writer/director Brad Bird, producer John Walker, and some of the movies’ animators. A making-of documentary introduces you to the zany genius behind the blockbuster. With as much energy as the characters of his script, Bird discusses deleted scenes and an alternate opening (which defends motherhood as a career choice). Additionally, there are seven featurettes describing the artistic process involved in making 3D computer-animation. (Some of the participants use mild profanity and terms of deity as expletives.)

Other bonus features include “Jack-Jack Attack” (where the babysitter talks about her experiences with the child who was too hot to handle), “Top Secret NSA Files on all the Supers” (learn more about the heroes incidentally mentioned in the movie), “Mr. Incredible & Pals”(a mock low-budget, Saturday-morning-style cartoon that becomes funny when you listen to the commentary provided by Mr. Incredible and Frozone), and Vowellet (an interview with Sarah Vowell, the voice talent behind Violet.)

Of course the usual Pixar extras are provided, such as a small collection of bloopers and “Incredi-Blunders” and the short film that ran before The Incredibles when it played in theaters. “Boundin,” is the story of a sheep whose pride is shorn with his wool. A jack-elope teaches him happiness can be found in more than his outward appearance. Bud Lucky, who created this piece, provides a commentary track.

The DVD is available in Digital 5.1 EX, with audio tracks in English, French and Spanish, with English subtitles.
