Help Us Decide


Which animated feature should the b/f take me to see this weekend?

Fuck the sponge.

Tom Hanks playing five or six roles in a single film? Nah.

Go for "The Incredibles." Speculate on what sex between Mr. Incredible and Elastigirl must have been like. Discuss the paradox of being a woman who basically is her own condom.

The Incredibles, because it's Pixar, and because it's GOOD. They spent 165 MILLION making Polar Expresss, and from the incredible amount of commercials I've seen for it, more than twice that on the advertising. It looks like crap and the story is boring (they had to stretch out a 30 page book for an hour and a half movie). If you've seen The Wizard of Oz and It's a Wonderful Life, you've seen the plot before and done much beter.

I've never seen Spongebob, so I can't comment on it.

I'm leaning towards the Incredibles myself. Anything with Samuel "Officer fuckin' Tenpenney" Jackson's voice in it has got to be good..........

If you haven't seen Team America yet, see that instead.

Of the three, I've only seen "The Incredibles," but I heartily recommend it since that's the first movie I laughed at - in the good way - in years.

Just a dang good flick.

Incredibles!!! It's incredible!

I pick The Incredibles. I have heard ridiculously good rave reviews about it (including that there actually is an excellent plot, which is lacking in many kids movies).

I've only heard mixed opinions on The Polar Express...it seems okay, but not terrific.

And Spongebob is freakin' annoying.

(and I'd like to make a random comment that if you have never seen Monsters, Inc., you should rent it some time...it's probably my favorite kids movie.)

Howzabout "Michael Moore Hates America"?

i saw Team America and it was awesome. but its not really animated now is it?

anyways, it looks like it's going to be the Incredibles tonight.

The Incredibles has a line that those who share our values will appreciate...."when everyone is special, no one is"....I doubt they realized just how much that mesage is needed in America today.

Hands down, The Incredibles. Its.....well its incredible. Delightfully entertaining, intelligent - not adult which is code for sex jokes that kids won't get - and best of all, full of good values. Line of the film; "when will they stop inventing ways to celebrate mediocrity".

Incredibles, hands down. If b/f is under 11 Sponge Bob.
