the film makes fun of everything from superhero cliches, such as a villain "monologuing," to educational cliches, such as mom Elastigirl tells her educationally-challenged son, "Every child is special," to which Dash sardonically but correctly replies, "If everyone is special, then NO ONE is special." A savvy comment on the blanderizing of America in which mediocrity can reap great rewards while quality withers on the vine.
Peter David, Writer/Author, shares his opinion of the film. Also watch out for a little spoiler regarding the upcoming film "Fantastic Four".
