“No Capes!”

Tonight, mom is out with the girls, so in desperation I let Liam, Nora and Henry watch The Incredibles for what seems like the 12,346th time.

It really is a great film.

My favorite character is Edna Mode (who is voiced by director Brad Bird by the way). She has some great lines including:

“Milan, darling. Milan. Supermodels. Heh! Nothing super about them… spoiled, stupid little stick figures with poofy lips who think only about themselves. Feh! I used to design for *gods*!”

Most of her banter goes right over the kids’ heads, but that’s what makes a really good “kids movie” – enough to entertain the kids and enough to keep the parents awake.

My other favorite Edna Moment is when Bob pulls up to her gate and she looks at him through the video monitor and says, “My God, you’ve gotten fat.” Completely un-PC, but hilarious.

What was your favorite moment or line from the movie?
