'The Incredibles' (2004)

The plot: Bob Parr (voice of Craig T. Nelson) and his wife Helen (Holly Hunter) used to be the world-saving crime fighters, Mr. Incredible and Elastigirl, until such super-heroics were outlawed due to public outrage over the collateral damage. Fifteen years later, suburbanite Bob is pacing his boring cubicle at Insuricare where the closest he gets to super feats is guiding little old ladies to beneficial loopholes in their insurance policies. A mysterious summons to a remote island changes all that, and soon the crime fighters get their groove back while saving mankind from the evil Syndrome (Jason Lee).

Why it's worthy: Beneath the brightly colored Disney/Pixar animation beats a story about the very essence of insurance: security. When the world turns its back on the Parrs, Helen encourages Bob to "go save the world, one policy at a time." When he tries, his boss explodes, forcing Bob to return to what he does best: Provide insurance of the superhero kind.

Set notes: Bob's boss (Wallace Shawn): "Complaints I can handle. What I can't handle is your customers' inexplicable knowledge of Insuricare's inner workings. They're experts! Experts, Bob! Exploiting every loophole! Dodging every obstacle! They're penetrating the bureaucracy!"
