The Incredibles and Ann Rand

SondraK mentions that when she went to see The Incredibles she was struck by the Objectivist theme throughout the movie. Now, I hadn't seen "that", but of course I was in and out of the theater during the movie with my two-year-old son Ethan (sigh, the other children enjoyed it.) SondraK linked a great article that discusses in depth the themes presented in the movie that basically scream out as Rand-inspired. Reading the article was pretty much a "duh" moment for me ... but in my defense ... Ethan, etc. I've only read one Rand book (Fountainhead, just this past year), and afterwards was pretty excited to discuss it's themes. This desire has yet gone unfulfilled. Has The Incredibles brought Rand to the masses?
