The Screenslaver interrupts this program for an important announcement. Don't bother watching the rest. Elastigirl doesn't save the day; she only postpones her defeat. And while she postpones her defeat, you eat chips and watch her invert problems that you are too lazy to deal with. Superheroes are part of a brainless desire to replace true experience with simulation. You don't talk, you watch talk shows. You don't play games, you watch game shows.

We had low expectations going in. 99% of the time, Hollywood sequels are lazy productions that are made to cash in on the original's good will. Twenty minutes in, we happily realized that the writer/director Brad Bird actually put as much effort into this movie as he did in the original Incredibles.
To echo every other reviewer- it was worth waiting 14 years. I will happily wait another 14 if the third installment is up to the caliber of #2.
The animation was top notch and the script is surprisingly deep. Superheros are struggling to regain their lawful status in society, Violet is going through teenage dating pains. Family finances and stay at home parenting are heavy themes on top of the standard villain vs. hero struggle. Still, it manages to be laugh out loud funny all the way through. Jack Jack's ability reveals are easily the funniest scenes in the movie, and we love the Poltergeist Easter egg. Wonder if Craig T Nelson had anything to do with it?
Yes, the main villain is kind of weak and predictable, but that only took one star off. The story was kind of long, as in the editor could have cut 10 minutes without losing much.
Like the original, we will watch it again and again when it comes out on disc.
