"Fanciful? Sure. Familiar? You bet. But Stewart and Hoult are both quietly devastating. Doremus is onto something about possibility in a future world gone cold from insisting that things can't change." - Rolling Stone
"Stewart's twitchiness and utter sincerity both come in handy here, as she and Hoult generate a youthful electricity" - AV Club

Once one of the world's top masked crime fighters, Bob Parr--known to all as "Mr. Incredible"--fought evil and saved lives on a daily basis. But now fifteen years later, Bob and his wife--a famous superhero in her own right--have adopted civilian identities and retreated to the suburbs to live normal lives with their three kids. Now he's a clock-punching insurance claims adjuster fighting boredom and a bulging waistline. Itching to get back into action, Bob gets his chance when a mysterious communication summons him to a remote island for a top-secret assignment.
“The Incredibles has that rare quality of feeling modern and classic at the same time.” – Salon
“As always, Pixar excels with its animation, but what makes this family film even more appealing is the smartness of the script, which is clearly written, end to end, to appeal to adults as well as children.” – Washington Post
“A visually thrilling experience.” – Miami Herald
115 mins. Rated PG
After stumbling upon a bizarre "competitive endurance tickling" video online, wherein young men are paid to be tied up and tickled, reporter David Farrier reaches out to request a story from the company. But the reply he receives is shocking-the sender mocks Farrier's sexual orientation and threatens extreme legal action should he dig any deeper. So, like any good journalist confronted by a bully, he does just the opposite: he travels to the hidden tickling facilities in Los Angeles and uncovers a vast empire, known for harassing and harming the lives of those who protest their involvement in these films. The more he investigates, the stranger it gets, discovering secret identities and criminal activity. Discovering the truth becomes Farrier's obsession, despite increasingly sinister threats and warnings. With humor and determination, Farrier and co-director Dylan Reeve summon up every resource available to get to the bottom of this tickling worm hole.
"The movie draws you in with its eyebrow-raising look at an erotic subculture, then quickly escalates into a harrowing tale of alleged identity theft, online intimidation and American privilege gone dangerously awry." - LA Times.
"In its genial, low-key way, the film ... is a chilling account of cyberbullying, perpetrated on a disturbingly wide scale over many years." - Hollywood Reporter.
"Begins as a lighthearted look at the alleged sport of "competitive endurance tickling" and gradually turns into something much more disturbing." - AV Club.
97 mins., Rated R.
