Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this animated Pixar film is considered one of their all-time best for portraying mature themes about families in a way that both kids and adults can enjoy. Because of the movie's focus on a superhero family, there's much more violence than is usually featured in comparable PG-rated movies. The family adventure includes all sorts of weapons, explosions, deaths, wide-spread destruction and more. A few characters are shown with drinks in hand, and one character even smokes a long-stemmed cigarette. Despite the intensity of the Bond-level violence, there are plenty of positive themes about family, courage, and identity to make this a must-see for families.

Sexual Content

Mr. Incredible and Elastigirl, who are married, kiss several times, flirt with each other (before they're married), pinch each other on the bum, and act passionately in love. Elastigirl assumes Mr. Incredible is committing adultery, but he isn't. Teenagers have a crush on each other. Mirage wears revealing outfits that highlight her dramatic cleavage. Elastigirl has a knock-out hourglass figure in her skintight costume. Syndrome makes a racy comment: "You married Elastigirl and got busy?"


There are many, many scenes of intense and sustained, but not bloody, violence. A host of weapons, from handguns to explosives to lasers, are used in various battles between villains and superheroes. Bullets whiz by, cars explode, buildings collapse. Skeletons of killed superheroes are shown, and references are made to superheroes who've died various ways. Mr. Incredible believes his family has been killed in a jetplane explosion, and the family comes near death many, many times. Hand-to-hand fights are also portrayed, and characters punch and push each other. Overall, the body count and general violence is much higher than in most comparable animated adventures.


A few exclamations of "Oh my God!", "What the...", and "Jeez."

Social Behavior

The biggest theme is that families that stay together and allow their talents to shine are the strongest. Other issues thoughtfully explored through the characters include self-identity, marital malaise, family dynamics, responsibility to help others, and teen angst.

Characters have (or are offered) wine, champagne, and a mimosa. Edna smokes an old-fashioned, long-stemmed cigarette.
