Corrected entry: In the scene where Mr. Incredible first discovers Syndrome's computer room, he starts to walk towards it. He is about a 1/3 of the way when the shot angle changes. When it does, Mr. Incredible is suddenly now much closer to the computer chair to sit in. He didn't have the time to move.
Corrected entry: When The Incredibles fight the giant robot in the city, after they crash that van and roll a number of times before coming to a stop, they can see the robot walking towards their left on the road ahead of them. They get out of the van, Bob talks with Helen for some time, then the robot emerges from behind them and crushes their van. Seeing the robot's size and its speed, it couldn't possibly go around the entire block in so little time. The building it went around can be seen when the robot walks towards them, and it is huge, making the trip around it really long.
Corrected entry: In the scene after Helen and the children have reached land after swimming in the water, Helen's hair is sudden much longer than her natural short hair style.
Corrected entry: In the scene near the beginning the of movie when Mr Incredible goes to the island and is fighting the first robot, he he hurts his back. The robot then picks him up and, using its claws, begins stretching him, during which we hear his back pop, and him laugh. He then uses his strength to pull one of the robot's claws off, allowing him to escape. Later in the scene the claw mysteriously reappears, as seen when the robot is defeated and collapses to the ground.Hawk
Corrected entry: During the chase scene at the beginning of the movie, Bob pulls up a map of where he is as opposed to the cop car and the getaway car. The computer then plots a merge pursuit course as being an immediate right, followed by a left turn and two more right turns. The car converts, then is shown taking an immediate left, then a right turn, a mirror image of what the map displays.
Corrected entry: The Parrs fly back to the town using the spare rocket. This would actually be a very bad idea, since the rocket was not designed to carry humans. As shown earlier when launching the Omnidroid, the rocket actually goes through space, before detaching the glider with the Omnidroid.Now if they plot the same course with the spare rocket, the Parrs would've died in space, since neither the rocket nor the van would protect them from the cold and the vacuum. Now one could argue that Violet used a force field to protect them, but as the movie established earlier, she's unable to produce such a large force field. She not only has to encapsulate the van but the entire rocket to protect everyone, since Helen is clinging onto the glider. And even if we assume that she is capable of such a force field, she would have to keep it up until they successfully reentered the atmosphere. But by encapsulating the whole glider with a force field, it would lose any aerodynamics, causing the whole thing to just tumble straight down, instead of a controlled flight. No matter how you look at it, they could not survive using the rocket.
Corrected entry: When Mr. Incredible is caught lurking in the computer room on the island, the guns shoot that black sticky stuff on him. He starts running. He falls down. He puts his hand forward to stop the fall, and a ball is stuck to it. The ball slid across the ground and didn't stick. Other balls were shown sticking to the ground.Anon_Acct
Corrected entry: When Bob arrives at Edna's, she makes the comment "my god, you've gotten fat." However, this takes place after the montage where he works out to get back into shape.
Corrected entry: When Helen is vacuuming the hallway, and goes into Bob's office, the vacuum cord is coming from the far side of the washer and dryer. But when the camera moves inside the office, the cord is coming in the door from the right, which is the opposite direction.
Corrected entry: When Bob's at the office with a client when his wife calls, the clock at home (that she looks at) says about 3:30. Soon after, when he stands up to 'check for anybody listening', the clock on the far office wall shows about after 10:00.
00:11:50 - 00:12:30
Corrected entry: If the US government spends so many hundreds of thousands of dollars (as Rick Dicker states) in protecting Mr. Incredible's identity, then wouldn't anybody care about the fact that there's an entire room devoted to Mr. Incredible? I mean, if it was just memorabilia, that would be one thing, but pictures? With a guy who looks exactly like said superhero in the same house? I think people would get suspicious. Not to mention the fact that the government let Bob Parr keep his suit. Any slightly nosy neighbor could figure it out; wouldn't the US government?
Corrected entry: So the basic premise of this film is formerly respected superheros are outlawed by the government and forced to retire due to excessive public criticism. Their select group tries living normal lives but eventually find the call of the costume is too strong. They team up to combat a world-threatening evil force and finally go back to being full time heroes, if only in secret. Any of that sound familiar to anyone? It should. It's the exact same premise as "Watchmen".
Corrected entry: In the hangar near the end the family finds an RV with all of the guards inside. Mr. Incredible stops and tells his family to wait at the rear corner of the RV. He then enters and beats up the guards; while doing so, the outside shot of the RV shows no family and no place for all of them to hide (look under the RV to check the other side). Then he opens the door and they're at the corner again.Phoenix
Corrected entry: When Helen and Edna are in her lab, E tells Helen that Dash's suit can make him run without ever getting tired. Now in the scene where the plane Helen was flying is destroyed and they have to get to shore, Dash is wearing his suit and is speeding his feet. When they finally arrive to shore, why is Dash tired if his suit is on?
Corrected entry: In the first scene with the Omnibot thing, Bob is cut by the robot's claw thing through his suit, you can even see where the blood was on the cut. But every other scene with the same cut on his clothes, the cut itself has disappeared only showing the rip in the suit.
Corrected entry: During the plane scene Helen changes into her Incredible outfit. She goes in a toilet to change. This makes no sense because she appears to be alone until she throws the bag on Violet.If she indeed was alone, then there was no reason to go into the toilet. She just could have changed her outfit right there.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Violet makes a spherical shield around her and Dash and the shield holds her up off the ground, it would be impossible for Dash to run and the shield to roll without Violet and Dash crashing into each other. Dash either would have run into Violet, or run right over Violet. We know the shield is rolling becuse they roll over their parents and keeps the rolling consistent.
Corrected entry: When Bob is in his cubicle at work and telling Mrs. Hogenson he can't help, he stands up above the walls. When he does this, there is no opening next to his cubicle for the hallway that is there in every other shot.
Corrected entry: At the Start of the movie when Buddy is talking to Mr. Incredible in his car, when Mr. Incredible, slides his hand over his own forehead his hand passes through his hair. (As in his hand moves through the strands of his hair and the hair doesn't move at all) (You may need to zoom in).
Corrected entry: In the scene where the Parrs' are at the dinner table fighting and the doorbell rings, Dash runs over to the door to open it. We see the shot from outside with Dash with his hand up (from turning the doorknob). But you can see that he is not tall enough to reach the doorknob. It is in the middle of the door.
Corrected entry: When Frozone and Mr. I are in the burning building, near the beginning of the film, Mr. I asks Frozone to freeze the fire. When Frozone attempts this and fails, he tells Mr. I that he can't because there's no water in the air. This makes no sense because one of the by-products of hydrocarbon combustion (aka fire) is H2O.
Corrected entry: In the scene where the guard is trying to shoot at Violet, she jumps into the water, invisible. Then Dash runs up and punches the guard. After the guard gets over his shock he throws Dash back, and aims his gun at him. Violet jumps in front of Dash and uses her force field to protect him and her. Her hair isn't a bit wet, though. The mistake is even more shown after she takes off the force field when they meet Mr. and Mrs. Incredible.
Corrected entry: In the very very last scene, when the underminer arrives the Incredible family puts on their masks, when Bob does he opens his jacket to his super suit. Notice that his shirt has buttons but it slips open like they are not there.
Corrected entry: When Mr. Incredible corners the tour bus robber, the man pulls a pistol from behind the small of his back. But when his back is first seen, there is no sign of a gun, and if it were hidden underneath his shirt, a) its contours would still be visible, and b) he would not be able to draw it that fast.
Corrected entry: When Elastigirl is escaping from Omnidroid in the city, and Omnidroid is shooting her 'laser rays', the third ray produces an explosion that actually begins before the ray reaches the place. (This must be seen frame by frame).
Corrected entry: When Helen visits Edna's secret lab she is given a cup of tea. However, it never shows it again.
Corrected entry: When Bob stops the train, it forms a triangle in the air. When you see the picture on the newspaper when he is sued the height of the train is much steeper.
Corrected entry: Just after Dash is riding on Frozone's back and the robot jumps into the water, there is a big wave and Dash and Frozone jump into the air. Frozone then freezes the wave in the air, and it turns into snow which falls to the ground for Dash to fall safely on. Either Dash would have landed painfully before the snow hit the ground or the snow would have hit Dash as it fell, covering him in snow.
Corrected entry: In the battle scene when it is the Incredibles and Frozone versus the robot, Frozone gives Dash a ride to escape the robot that is trying to roll over them. Frozone freezes the giant wave of water into snow. Later in the scene the robot gets destroyed and falls over. When it does, the snow that was there from the wave is suddenly water again. No matter what, snow doesn't melt that fast under normal day conditions.
Corrected entry: During the title credits, turn it on French and you will see that it tells you that the film is called "Les Incroyable". "Incroyable" is singular, not plural, so it should be "Les Incroyables".
Corrected entry: When the plane is destroyed by rockets, Helen transforms herself into a parachute to save the kids from falling. So as they descend slowly into the sea she starts to talk to the kids, but after all that (which is 30-40 seconds after the rocket hit) finally the huge part of the plane falls into the ocean. What exactly is the destroyed plane doing in the air so long? Gravity surely works another way. This is obviously deliberately done for the drama.
Corrected entry: When it shows the details for the Omnidroid in Mirage's video, it says Omnidroid 7. Later she calls it the Omnidroid 9000 at the briefing. Then when he is fighting the first Omnidroid, the side of the robot says Omnidroid 8. While the discrepancy between 7 and 8 can be explained, there is no reason that Mirage would screw up the production number and number format.
Corrected entry: When Bob cuts Dash's plate into pieces, the table isn't harmed at all, but Bob says, "First the car, now I gotta fix the table."
Corrected entry: In the scene where Helen goes to the principal's office, she doesn't have the baby with her, but in the next scene, driving home with Dash, the baby is in the backseat.
Corrected entry: When Helen and the kids narrowly escape the exploding plane, Helen does not grab the bag that held her super-suit. She doesn't have it when they are falling or parachuting to the ocean. Yet when the 3 are using Helen and Dash as a makeshift speedboat, the bag is in the boat, and it also appears later in the cave. They could have salvaged it from the water, but its doubtful the bag would have survived the explosion.
Corrected entry: In the scene in which Kari is reassuring Elastigirl that she can "totally handle anything this baby can dish out", Kari starts talking to Jack-Jack (as Elastigirl listens) and then the missile alert sounds. However, in the short "Jack-Jack Attack", the beeping starts earlier, while Kari is still talking to Jack-Jack, and Elastigirl hangs up more quickly.
Corrected entry: Violet's headband wasn't made by Edna, so it shouldn't disappear. However, it always goes invisible whenever she does. If her parents had it made by some other costume designer, why didn't they go the whole hog and get her entire wardrobe made up to disappear when she does - it makes no sense to just do her hairband.
Corrected entry: Edna Moda Talked about a few heroes having accidents with capes. Most of them are in Mr. Incredible and Elastigirl wedding. Prohibition for superheroes occurs immediately after the wedding. Did all of them die in that short period of time? (none of them appeared in the list of superheroes defeated by the robot).
Corrected entry: When Mr. incredible is driving wildly in the caravan after landing in it from the rocket, he eventually brakes for no reason other than to do the parallel parking joke. Surely he couldn't have known that the van would land exactly in that spot. There was no traffic crossing the path of the van either, so no reason for him to brake.
Corrected entry: When Mr. Incredible is in the containment unit, after he's found out that his family has been killed, he starts to grab Syndrome. There is a shot of Mirage seeing what's happening with her earpiece microphone on, and in the next shot when Mr. Incredible has grabbed her, it is not there anymore.
Corrected entry: When Bob leaves the house for his second assignment for Syndrome, he drives his sport's car out of the garage after saying goodbye to Helen. At the end of the film, after they are dropped at the house by a limousine, Bob throws his car at Syndrome's plane. When and how did the car get home?
Corrected entry: When the kids and parents fight at the dinner table and Frozone rings the doorbell, they all stop fighting and put the table down - and we can see the lamp above the table is perfectly still. In the next shot, Frozone enters and the lamp is swinging so much that Mrs. Incredible has to reach out and stop it.
Corrected entry: Mirage's skin colour changes considerably throughout the film, from a dark tan colour to a very pale white. It has nothing to do with the light in the scene either, as in daylight in two different scenes she is two different colours.
Corrected entry: When Bob goes to E's house she refuses to patch the old super suit because, in her words "I never look back darling, it distracts from the now." Well if she never looks back why is she still wearing the exact same outfit as she does at the Parr's wedding 15 years earlier.
Corrected entry: After they beat the final Omnidroid together, Dash tells Bob that he thought it was cool when he threw the car, but Bob doesn't throw a car until after that.
Corrected entry: When Helen is hoovering, she collects the bits from in front of Bob's door and you can hear the bits going into the hoover. The hoover has a bag but the bits make a sound like on the metal pipe type hoovers. The sound effect was used so Helen went in the room but still a mistake.
Corrected entry: When Mirage is explaining the Omnidroid 9000 to Mr. Incredible, the keyboard in front of the holographic monitor is slightly out of whack. The row of QWERTY keys is too far to the right, with Q being between 2 and S. This is probably OK for cartoon characters to hunt and peck, but a real touch-typist would have a very difficult time with this arrangement.
Corrected entry: When the family are in the caravan (with Helen on the top) and Bob opens the window, you quickly see the caravan from the bottom. In that shot, Helen's head is slightly overhanging the top, so you can see it, however, in all shots from the top, Helen's head is about a metre away from the front of the caravan, and she couldn't have stretched, because there is no time between shots.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Mrs. Parr goes to see Dash's principal she walks into his office alone. In the car after leaving you can see and hear Jak Jak in the back seat. They are on their way to pick up Violet so was Jak Jak left alone in the car?
Corrected entry: When Bob is in the "X-Men"-like computer room looking through the Omnidroids History, it is 23:07 (or 11:07PM). We know this as Syndrome tells us a little later that this was when the homing signal was set off meaning it would be night time at the Island Lair. There are 8 hours, 10 mins left to go on the countdown. Now back home it is day light due to the time difference, Elastagirl is at Edna's home. She goes home, packs, and then catches the plane. The whole fight is gone through and it's day time when they're in the sea. They swim to the island and it's night again. Now for this to happen, they would miss the launch of the rocket. But no, it goes off when they get into the cave, and the kids are left alone.Graeme Chicken
Corrected entry: When Bob Finds the message in his briefcase about the Omnidroid, he switches it on and it says the Omnidroids name is the Omnidroid X7. But when Bob goes to the island as Mr Incredible, he fights the Omnidroid, and on it's side it has the digits 08, so it is the Omnidroid X8. But the next Omnidroid is the Omnidroid X10. I know Syndrome might have missed Omnidroid X9 out, but why?
Corrected entry: During Bob and Helen's wedding, Stratogirl is sitting in the audience. However, later in the movie Edna reminds Bob that she died when her cape caught on something. Stratogirl died in April '57, which is before the wedding took place.
00:10:00 - 00:45:25
Corrected entry: On the island, Violet's pink headband just appears out of nowhere when she decides to wear her hair off of her face.
Corrected entry: When flying back to the city the only connection between the caravan and the plane/rocket is Elastigirl. Nevertheless they push a button inside the van to split the plane and release the caravan. That doesn't make sense because there is no cable connection to the plane and why would a radio transmitter be build into the caravan (using/making a standalone transmitter would be much easier)?
Corrected entry: In Dash's chase scene, when he got trapped in the cave. He was able to stand on water.
Corrected entry: Interesting sideline, Edna Mode, the "costume designer for the supers" is patterned after Edith Head, the costume designer of the stars for hundreds of movies. She died a couple of decades ago, but this is a homage, right down to the hair style; height; and round hornrimmed glasses,to a very well known designer, who even used some of the lines given to Edna in the movie.
Corrected entry: When Mrs. Incredible and the kids are shot down, they are shown in the water and her hair is a mess. But soon after they arrive on shore, her hair is as perfect as it was before being shot down.
Corrected entry: Nothing was explained where super-villains go when the superheroes were retired. Presumably the government could not just herd them up with the heroes - if it could, the government have just used the same technique to arrest them all for being villains. It is a very bad plot hole because, if there had been other villains around, Syndrome could have fought them to gain recognition as a hero rather than devising his evil plot.Moose
Corrected entry: When Helen is in the plane with Dash and Violet going to save Bob, homing missiles come towards them. Helen presses the button to tell the kids to put their seat belts on. A few seconds later they're bouncing around in their seats shouting.
Corrected entry: Near the start of the film when Violet sees Tony coming out of school, she uses her powers to disappear. The only problem is the books she is holding disappear with her.
Corrected entry: When Bob (AKA Mr. Incredible) drives home in his tiny car at the beginning, he bends the metal of the car. After bending the metal he slams the door of the car so hard he shatters the window. In the next scene with the car, the window is completely intact, whilst the metal is still bent.
