Going to see The Incredibles 2? You’re probably well aware that the PG-rated animated feature from Pixar is a family movie, or at least it’s meant to be. It’s the long-awaited sequel to a film that came out 14 years ago to a rash of praise from moviegoers and fans alike, and it’s considered one of the best Pixar movies.

You may also be aware that people are incredibly horny for the heroine of The Incredibles 2,  Elastigirl. Especially New Yorker film critic Anthony Lane.

Lane’s review has been the subject of ire and ridicule since it went live. It’s a treasure trove of awkward statements and cringe-inducing desires. It even implies in one oft-quoted section that some men are attending showings of the flick, seeing Elastigirl, and…getting erections…? Here’s one of the juiciest tidbits that’s been making the rounds:

Take your seat at any early-evening screening of “Incredibles 2” in the coming days, listen carefully, and you may just hear a shifty sound, as of parents squirming awkwardly beside their enraptured offspring. And why, kids? Because Mommy just leaned over to Daddy and whispered, “Is it just me, or does Mrs. Incredible kind of look like Anastasia in ‘Fifty Shades of Grey?’ You know, the girl in the Red Room, with the whips and all?” And Daddy just rested his cooling soda firmly in his lap and, like Mr. Incredible, tried very hard to think of algebra. As for how Daddy will react later on, during the scene in which Helen and the husky-voiced Evelyn unwind and simply talk, woman to woman, I hate to think, but watch out for flying popcorn.

Bizarrely, the review is littered with references to sexual innuendo, which is strange given that it’s a professional film review written about a children’s movie. It appears Lane believes that parents around the world in movie theaters will be dealing with uncomfortable sexual tension every time Elastigirl is on-screen, which is just, well…a bit strange.

The Incredibles 2 fans have dragged him relentlessly for the review, and they’re still out for blood.

Uh, yeah. Same.

The review goes on to discuss Elastigirl’s suit being “as tight as a second skin” and extols her “waspish of waist” figure. He also seemed disappointed that Mr. and Mrs. Incredible fight crime in the children’s movie instead of retreating to have sex. In a kids’ movie. Rated PG. From Disney and Pixar, no less.

“I’m disappointed to report that the action in question is merely the manic pursuit of a gigantic drill that is whirring through a crowded city and demolishing everything in its path, rather than a lazy afternoon in the marital boudoir with the door discreetly shut,” he writes.

Uh, you do you, Anthony Lane.

To be fair, Lane isn’t the only one who appears to be lusting after the flick’s female protagonist, though. Everyone is thoroughly entranced with Elastigirl to some degree, it seems. Internet denizens have proclaimed the supermom “thicc” in her crime-fighting outfit, with her tiny waist and an unusually large derrière. And that’s fine, at least it’s outside the context of writing a review of a kids’ movie, right?

It looks like everyone wants a piece of this new animated sex symbol.

People are also seriously impressed by the fact that, since Elastigirl can shape her body into any form she desired, she’s making the conscious choice every day to walk around with a voluptuous figure. Hey, who wouldn’t?

Show us the lie, though.

The Incredibles 2 is in theaters now, so you can check out all the “thiccness” for yourself. We’re asking you nicely, though: Try not to be weird about it.

  1. Good ¡V I should definitely pronounce, impressed with your website. I had no trouble navigating through all the tabs and related info ended up being truly simple to do to access. I recently found what I hoped for before you know it at all. Quite unusual. Is likely to appreciate it for those who add forums or something, site theme . a tones way for your client to communicate. Excellent task..

  2. One thing I miss, and I think you guys could think about working on it, is the same app for mac, so you can type everything on your computer and just import to shotlist on your ipad or iphone. I mean, I just got the app today and spent over 6 hours preparing a shooting schedule for next week on the ipad. It is great, very well made, but Im sure that if I had a way of making it as easily on my computer and THEN import it to shotlist, that would be sweet. PLEASE do it! =)

  3. Hi there Icy — great story. Loved the backwoods band, small-venue feel of it, and the way you put the story across. Kept me wondering what the shtick was until the end, and having them be a literally manufactured band was a great idea. Happy, belated, Halloween :)St.


  5. that’s only cuz I didn’t have hat hair. I couldn’t put a hat back on that was THAT wet.Also, you’re used to seeing my hair right after a dunk; I come to work often with it wet, and I don’t style it through the day, either. However it dries after the shower is how I wear it. *shrug*

  6. MAMA bestial fi,mu cei care au zis ca nui frumos nu stiu sa aprecieze genul acesta de filme deci intaorectiva la filmele voastre de actiune si nu mai comentati degeaba ca greu se gasesc filme de fantezie asa bune si cu actori asa mari

  7. Pursuing the racism angle is obsolete when the OVERWHELMING MAJORITY of black murder victims are murdered by OTHER BLACK PEOPLE. But most black people don't get it. Including you, field negro. When it comes to something important why are black people the last to know and understand?

  8. Anywhere else in the world, this would be treated as a felony hit-and-run. But in Israel, where the boss and master is the Zionist Jew, this will be brushed away and ignored. The soldiers standing there will just say, “We were surrounded by a hostile crowd of demonstrators. We didn’t see what happened on the other side of the street.”This type of criminality is only possible because of the dehumanization of Arabs and racism toward Arabs in which Israeli Jewish society marinates.

  9. Well as a lay man, what I understand is that the carbon in the air does not let sunlight escape once it enters the atmosphere. So, because carbon holds on to sunlight, it increases the atmospheric temperature. At the same time too much carbon blocks sunlight, and so it brings about a dimming phenomena.

  10. Yo también lo he visto en Público esta mañana y me hizo gracia…¡qué juez más cachondo!.Estos señores jueces como se aburren mucho, no se les ocurre otra cosa que fastidiar a gente que sólo quiere vivir.Bicos

  11. good comparison. I would have the old model with the larger lumination, , old bezel, but in ceramic, with the thinner case and the new bracelet completely polished. A bit of a hybrid would have been better. Also keep the GMT hand in red, give a better contrast than the green. I will purchase a GMT II 06 as preferred. Thanks.

  12. Glad to hear from you, Rod. There’s a web site for Wheelus alumni. Check out Wheelus Ex-Students or Wheelus High School. There’s also a group on Facebook if you’re interested and a reunion next May in Albuquerque, N.M. Feel free to share more memories with me. Victoria

  13. angeles son peces territoriales y tu pecera es muy pequeña para tener angeles con los otros peces, necesitas un acuario de por lo menos 50 galones para esta poblacion de peces. Te recomiendo que leas este articulo Saludos.

  14. Really amazed! Everything is incredibly, very clear, open is often a description from the problem. It provides the information.

  17. Q: Aren’t there some credentials success stories?*I am thinking of the success of LPN programs and various medical technologist certification programs. This is a way to get people into the field and working in a shorter period of time with preliminary training and certification that they know the basics.*With certification, training, and work experience, technologists can perform functions that previously had to be done by doctors.

  18. Um tipo decide estrear-se nos comentários quando lhe dão umas palmadas na barriga… As duas extrapolações acima são pernetas. O Carvalho da Silva retirar-me-ia do marasmo em que estas eleições já vão – e, vá, eu sou exemplo do voto urbano do; um, é certo, mas o segredo está no grão. O voto no PCP também é um exemplo do «revejo [voto] mas não me revejo [PCP] no sistema». De resto, é um prazer ir para a fila com o monstro amarelo pela trela.

  19. The thing is, I’ve spent pretty much my entire adult life around Cambridge and San Francisco, which I would suppose to be suppurating cesspools of Universalist memes, but I don’t think I’ve ever encountered anyone who worships at the altar of the state.It’s not so much “worship” in the way a classic Fascist might understand it, as an assumption that the State is the best way to get things done. The astonishing number of people who want to turn over the health-care industry to the government, centuries’ evidence of incompetence notwithstanding, is a good example.

  20. I think a lot of the times only one light shade does the trick rather than a bunch. Especially for someone like me who look a bit weird with light color over large area around the eyes. I agree that it might be best for fair, cool toned people. But I love the abundance of kits from them. Rachel recently posted …

  21. Mais voyons, Martin, ne pleurez pas, votre ami Boulet vous dirait que les dinosaures ont simplement évolué, et qu’ils sont parmis nous, sous nos yeux (ou plutôt au dessus de nos tête, à nous déféquer dessus sous la forme d’infames pigeons – et je ne parle pas des patrons de start-ups.)

  22. Everything that Cleveland is doing on offense is one on one. I know they can come back, but they better start making some of these shots or playing more of a team game if think it will actually happen. They also better start playing harder and smarter against Howard. Can’t keep defending him the same way. They should also start face guarding him on the glass and telling everyone else to rebound.

  23. You did a post on the prophylactics, didn’t you? Funny the things a blogger is known for. And you’re right about those hard core drugs being marketed as “mother’s little helper”, or routinely being given to children. Yikes!

  24. Unquestionably believe that which you understood. Your preferred raison d’?tre seemed to live by the side of the internet the simplest thing to acquire note of. I articulate to you, I of course get infuriated at the consistent epoch as additional community care about issues that they just don’t recognise concerning. You controlled to attain the nail upon the top and also clear not on the complete entity without having side produce , nation might obtain a gesticulate. Strength of character almost certainly be present backside to get extra. Be grateful you|

  25. Beyonce is not that young, if anything people hate on Rihanna she’s the young meat, hell even Sasha knows she is old news. Okay, move along folks beyonce is not going to throw out her nappy headed wig just because you talk about it. She’s desperate to hold on to fame so she’s never retiring, so get used to this old washed up bimbo, now go play kids.that is all.

  26. Woman of Alien…Best operate you have performed, this website is basically neat with excellent information and facts. Time is God’s means of keeping everything from happening at the same time….

  27. Merely, admirable what you might have performed here. It’s satisfying to appear you express from the heart and your clarity on this substantial content might be effortlessly looked. Exceptional post and will appear forward in your long run update.

  28. Why use an icon of a person holding a video camera for users that have no videos?! The search and clear buttons on the map don’t function. The map defaults to Palo Alto and apparently can not be changed.

  29. 150Steve: You’re right. I guess intellectual discussion is made up of well-reasoned, carefully considered, emotionally resonant, philosophically deep, somewhat thought-out arguments.…I did NOT get that from your post, however.Care to begin one?I’ll be waiting.f9

  30. Does your site have a contact page? I’m having problems locating it but, I’d like to shoot you an email. I’ve got some ideas for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great website and I look forward to seeing it develop over time.

  31. Snyggt! Älskar skjortan! Molly lät mest sÃ¥där konstigt när hon var valp men nu är det mkt bättre – men blev verkligen jätterädd härom natten, trodde hon skulle stryka med :p Tänkte frÃ¥gat veterinären om det första gÃ¥ngen jag vaccinerade henne men veterinären kunde nästan bara danska sÃ¥ jag gav upp ^^

  32. That 66% threshold is a potential problem and allows too much responsibility for any 1 party..the sooner a proper viable opposition emerges (I thought the ANC may lose some support this time around…obviously not) the better.What are the rules on the potential changes to the constitution Tim, do they become issues of conscience or do whips direct the party to support any proposed change?

  33. Hmm it appears like your website ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any recommendations for beginner blog writers? I’d certainly appreciate it.

  34. Don’t try to go too far the first few days; take it easy and get used to being on the bike. Soon enough you’ll be riding as far as you’d like. Don’t make a tour about the distance–it’s more about the people you meet along the way and the interesting places you find along the way.Join Warmshowers.org and meet some great folks who are excited to have you stay with them.

  35. registrar has done her job?? collecting notes from the parties? manjal may be a weak trademark and may have deserved cancelling. but was the order obtained properly? or underhand? if that stupid murti had shut up, none of this would have come out. does murti's clients know that he has damaged their case by asking spicyip to shut up. he should have first shut up!

  36. Hello DrPlease could you answer my question. We have been trying for a baby for 12 months now. I have had bloods and scans which were all fine. My husband has sperm count of 143 million with 40% motility and only 2% normal morphology. The first doctor we saw wasn’t concerned about these results and told us to continue trying. Another doctor has sadi we may need ICIS. We would really love to get pregnant naturally. What do you think our chances are?Thank youMRS W

  37. Merci pour toute ces explications. Elles m’ont permis de réarmer mon Thermor bloc steatite.Par contre, j’ai la carte d’antioxydation qui semble ne plus fonctionner : la led est éteinte en permanence. Un petit tuto de plus serait génial….En tout cas, bravo et merciG

  38. Ma megcsináltam ebédre a császármorzsát.Nagyon régóta vágytam már császármorzsára, csak nem találtam igazán jó receptet.De ez! Fantasztikus! Annyira jól sikerült, hogy a család repetázott is belőle,s Anyu azt mondta, mostantól (végre!) elfelejti a bolti porokat!Köszönöm! :-)Üdvözlettel,Adéle

  39. My spouse and i still can’t quite think I could end up being one of those reading the important recommendations found on your web blog. My family and I are sincerely thankful on your generosity and for offering me the possibility to pursue my own chosen career path. Many thanks for the important information I got from your web page.

  40. Hey very good internet internet site!! Man .. Beautiful .. Amazing .. I’ll bookmark your internet web site and take the feeds also…I am happy to find lots of helpful information here within the post, we need to have develop far more techniques in this regard, thanks for sharing. . . . . .

  41. I was at the goodwill the other day and I remembered your phoenix sweater, so I decided to take a look at the every single sweater section in the store. I didn't find a single thing the was even close to being as epic as your phoenix sweater. I'm more jealous than I can say to see you get ANOTHER amazing sweater!

  42. Anonymous internet fuckwad theory strikes again.It is truly amazing how stupidly shitheaded people can be when they think they have an audience and no consequences for being a shithead.When I was still blogging, I would delete their crap, and post a parody of their post under a parody version of their name …

  43. Pretty astute observations. However, I would have difficulty if I heard the woman I despised screaming and yelling at my Mom. I just roll that way and I’m not even from Jersey…from Boise, Idaho and no, I don’t ride a wagon train to work, work in a potato field, nor do I wear overalls… Although, even if I did all three of those things it wouldn’t make me a bad person, it’s just that when people think of Idaho they think were 20 years behind…we’re only four years behind.

  44. I, too, eagerly await your rendition of Scenes from an Italian Restaurant.Also, reading Robert Chistgau’s reviews of Billy’s work has repeatedly made me want to punch him (Christgau, not Billy).I am intrigued and pleased that you have a Pete Townshend obsession… speaking of expressing your anger by rocking out…

  45. I'm sorry to hear you are in the hospital. It's wonderful that you are able to get a little jewelry making done while you're there. I hope you are back at home in no time!Looking forward to seeing all those rings!

  46. Thanks for sharing superb informations. Your web site is so cool. I’m impressed by the details that you’ve on this blog. It reveals how nicely you understand this subject. Bookmarked this website page, will come back for extra articles. You, my pal, ROCK! I found simply the information I already searched all over the place and just couldn’t come across. What a perfect website.

  47. I wish that I could play bass by ear, but in the ensemble that? I’ll be joining.. Well..It’s a high school jazz band where everyone has sheet music so.. I have to go MOSTLY by what the sheet music does say.. That reminds me.. I need to remember to practice reading bass cleft..

  48. Question: is grace the same thing as condoning sin? We are told to give the grace that we have received, but that we are not to condone sin in our midst. There must be a way for us to do both of those things if God's word directs us to do both. I think we tend to see these as contradictory, when in reality they ought o be complimentary.
