    This is truly a great family movie. My four year old sat all the way through it and never took his eyes off the screen. Tho he is probably the only 4 year old I know who said "I want that house" when it first showed the main "villains" house.

    Lets just say fun ny. I expected something dull and weak because of it being a kids movie and I just hate kids. I saw more adults than kids and the movie itself without the little bleeps in the movie - whatever they are - would have been sour.

    This movie is a must see! I went to the movie with some friends ( we are adults) because we had free tickets and we were just expecting any other animated flick, but this movie is not like all the rest! I laughed through most of it and one of my girl friends peed her pants laughing. I highly reccomend this movie but make sure to bring a change of pants because you just might be that guy who pees his pants at an animated comedy. I definitely plan on going to see it again! Enjoy...

    If you are over 25, bring a kid with you so that no one will notice how into you are.

    Following on the heels of Toy Story 3, Despicable Me is more proof that the best summer movies are of the animated kind. While it won't stay with me the way Pixar's film did, Despicable Me is an enjoyablereport this review for TOS violationedy with a very funny script and great voice work by the always reliable Steve Carrell.
    Carrell plays Gru, a supervillain recently overshadowed by younger, better villain Vector (while Vector successfully steals the Great Pyramid, Gru can only steal the Statue of Liberty from New York, New York in Vegas). Gru decides he needs to do something big. His plan: shrink the moon and steal it. However, he needs to get the shrink ray that Vector has, so he adopts three orphans for the purpose of sneaking in and stealing it. Of course, Gru finds that dealing with these three young ladies is more difficult than he expected.
    While the story is pretty predictable (anyone who has seen The Grinch Who Stole Christmas knows how it goes) there's enough here to make things really enjoyable. The filmmakers take a chance making the lead a baddy, but Carrell makes the character sympathetic enough that we actually want him to succeed. There's a lot of references to old Loony Toons cartoons, and current jokes thrown in for the adults. And Gru's minions (blobby, green, pill looking guys) are just asking for their own spin-off.
    While the rest of the multiplex follows the same boring, bombastic path, animation is pushing the limits of entertainment. Despicable Me is another in the line of films that are seemingly made for kids, but are entertaining enough for adults. You may not remember it later, but you'll be happy while you're there.
