Storyline

In a dark room, Agent Rick Dicker interrogates Kari, a young girl with braces. He asks what happened. Kari explains that she was babysitting for an infant, Jack-Jack, who seems able to levitate, float, pass through walls, catch fire, and cause havoc. Kari stays nimble but barely holds on until an odd young man with orange hair and an "S" on his shirt rings the bell. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

A wonderfully distinctive voice with an expanded opportunity to shine!
5 May 2005 | by gklinglesmithSee all my reviews

I am consistently impressed by Pixar films. I have usually seen the 'parent' film (in this case "The Incredibles") which prompts me to buy the DVD. I particularly enjoy the shorts for the most profound of reasons...they make me laugh. Jack Jack Attack does just that. I laugh until I cry...every time I watch. It's a good story line with good writing and (of course) good animation. But most of all, I was delighted to see & hear one of my favorite cameo characters from "The Incredibles": Kari, the babysitter (as voiced by Bret Parker). Ms. Parker exhibits great comedic timing and character and has a wonderfully distinctive voice with an expanded opportunity to shine in Jack Jack Attack. The only other voice that tickles me so consistently is that of the great Bert Lahr as the Cowardly Lion in The Wizard of Oz. Now, that's pretty exalted company! Bravo, Pixar! Keep 'um coming...and let's hear more from Bret Parker. (You go, girl!)
