'Incredibles 2' hits theaters this weekend -- plus other fun films featuring unusual dads you can stream at home.
It’s wholly appropriate that Pixar’s Incredibles 2 was released Father’s Day weekend. A father stands at its emotional center — even if the actual storyline revolves more around Mom.
When the movie opens, superheroes are still, technically, illegal. Sure, they mean well, but they’re also very, very messy, which — for politicians, at least — makes them more trouble than they’re worth. But now, media mogul and confirmed superhero lover Winston Deavor wants to change all that. He plans to spearhead a public relations push to make “supers” legal again, and he wants Helen Parr, a.k.a. Elastigirl, to be its most visible hero.
But to do that, Helen will have to leave home … and leave the Parr family — moody Violet, super-fast Dash and baby Jack-Jack, who seems to have more powers than a certain caped wonder from Krypton — in care of her husband, Bob.
