My Incredibles DVD is stuck in the multidisc player.

Besides physically taking the drive apart, what can I do? Tried the paperclip in hole approach (wide open joke there), no luck.

Watch it again, maybe it'll grow on you and you'll decide to watch it regularly.

Are you suggesting my motherboard might have something to do with being lit up?

Powering up while pressing the eject button will often remove stuck discs, tapes, CDs.

I forget exactly why but I think maybe it was cuz the puter just loses track of the device

you also wana make sure your media doesn't have flaky labels that can hang up in the drive

U should have just torrented it. Bluray version still has 49 seed torrents in the Interwebz. Never heard of a torrent getting stuck in a player.

Assuming you bought the DVD, that automagically entitles you to a lifetime of torrented copies of said DVD for the term of your natural life. Its the Law of Hollywood.
