The Film: The Incredibles (2004)
The pitch to kids: Disney stores carried Incredibles superhero toys before the film even opened. And it’s Pixar – what could be harmful about that?
The complaints: Er, quite a bit, apparently: "This is a film which clearly needs to be examined or inquired into by parents before they let their children attend,” said then-MPAA chief Jack Valenti at the time.
What we really think they’re worried about: It’s possible some kids might be expecting a fun cartoon about superheroes – and that’s what they’d get. But there’s still planes being shot out of the sky, people being punched and shot.
And you just know every kid wants to copy the power to freeze water and use it to slide between buildings.
