BEST BET THIS WEEK

"Incredibles 2" It's been 14 years since we last saw Pixar’s superhero family, but this sequel picks up right where the first film left off, as Elastigirl becomes the face of a new campaign to return "supers" to their glory while Mr. Incredible stays at home with the kids. It all kind of looks like "Mr. Mom" meets "Superman," if Superman were married with children. And animated.
