Brad Bird Bluntly Responds To Parents Who Are Complaining About INCREDIBLES 2 Not Being a Kids Movie
Some parents aren't very happy with how Incredibles 2 turned out. One parent complained about the cuss words, which I don't recall hearing. Another said the movie was too boring for her four-year-old girl, and I'm not sure if they saw the same movie I saw, but there was nothing boring about it! Regardless, director Brad Bird responded to these complaints in the bluntest ways. You can read what he had to say below:
He makes a great point here! There are movie ratings for a reason. If you see a PG rating on a film, you should know what you are getting yourself into. After all, It does mean Parental Guidance suggested.
She’s FOUR. Presumably, she watched the first one at home, where she could run around, do other things, etc. Are you really asking me to write to suit your 4 year old’s (age appropriate) attention span? Do you judge 2&1/2 hour Marvel or Lucasfilm movies the same way? https://t.co/SRGPrymgB8— Brad Bird (@BradBirdA113) July 3, 2018
I don't know what to say to that. Bird had the perfect response, though. I don't think the director really needs to defend his film because it was so freakin' good, but it is interesting to see that he felt he needed to address these complaints.
We're just living in a time where people love to complain on social media and filmmakers aren't going to be able to make everyone happy!
