Supercute, superfluffy and superevil, the CGI cartoon DESPICABLE MEfollows ambiguously-continental, flamboyant do-badder Gru (SteveCarell, outdoing himself with the half-Transylvanian, half-Albanianaccent) in his quest to be the Greatest Supervillain in the World.The theft of the Great Pyramid by New Villain on the Block, Vector(voiced by Jason Segel) spurs Gru to strive for even greater glory -with his evil scientist Dr. Nefario (Russell Brand) and his army ofMinions (hundreds of maddeningly cute diminutive yellow beings dressedin overalls and goggles, one of them voiced by Jemaine Clement ofFLIGHT OF THE CONCHORDS), Gru plots to steal the Moon itself.To build a rocket, Gru must request a loan from The Bank of Evil(formerly Lehman Bros), and must find a way to steal a shrink ray fromVector, to shrink the Moon. To infiltrate Vector's HQ, Gru adopts threecute little girls (voiced by Miranda Cosgrove, Dana Gaier and ElsieFisher), who unknowingly aid Gru by selling Vector cookies with littlecookie-bots built into them.Written by Ken Daurio, Sergio Pablos and Cinco Paul, and directedenergetically by Pierre Coffin and Chris Renaud, DESPICABLE ME ismemorable because of Gru's ubiquitous sidekicks, the Minions.No matter the cool jazz feel of the hip hop title song by PharrellWilliams ("I'm having a bad, bad day / If you take it personal, that'sokay / Watch, this is so fun to see / Uh, despicable me!"); no matterhow cute the little girls are ("He's so fluffy, I'm gonna die!"), andno matter the excellent writing in avoiding maudlinism in theunavoidable character arc of Gru becoming a loving surrogate father,the Minions sell this film, with their chattery language and peripheralsight gags, constantly doing something so despicably cute you just wantto slap somebody.

This review is from: Despicable Me (Minion Madness DVD Double Pack + Digital Copy) (DVD) This movie is great for kids and adults. The Minions are adorable. And I love how the all have regular names like Kevin and Steve.

Despicable Me, from its initial previews, looked kind of, well, lame.Like it wasn't sure what it wanted to be. Was it about good versusevil? The little tots who wind up in almost every scene were barelyseen in the initial trailers. So I had sort of dismissed the movie. Butthat was a wrong decision, as the movie has a lot of heart, terrificvoice performances, and a simple, plausible plot that can please bothyoungsters and cranky old people. And the rest of you.Groo (Steve Carell) is the world's number-one supervillain. He lives ina lair that's beset on all sides by suburbia, and deep within that lairare house his thousands of minions, tiny little alien-looking creatureswho serve to live and live to serve. (They sort of remind me of thealien toys from Toy Story.)Groo is a mastermind who has big, big plans Â he wants to go to themoon, shrink it, bring it back to earth, and ransom it for untoldriches. To do this, he needs a loan from an evil banker (Will Arnett),who won't even talk to him until Groo can produce the needed shrinkray. Meanwhile, Groo isn't the only evil bastard out there, as a newkid on the block named Vector (Jason Segal) is already outdoing him insheer villainy, having swiped the Great Pyramid of Giza.Vector has the shrink ray, and Groo has a problem. He hits upon a mostcynical solution Â he'll use orphans! He adopts a trio of little girls(led by Miranda Cosgrove) who have been tasked with selling cookiesdoor to door, and it turns out Vector's ordered a huge batch. Groo seesthis as a way into Vector's own lair, thus allowing him to grab the gunand get the loan and shrink the moon and get all the riches in theworld! But he doesn't quite count on the girls' charms. It's said thatGroo's heart grew (ha, unintended pun) three sizes that day.Carell gives Groo a Slavic/Russian accent that's reminiscent of, amongothers, Bela Lugosi and Blofeld. The voice and the character are aperfect match, and Carell is terrific as he always seems to be in hisvoice work. Groo looks like The Penguin, come to think of it, addinganother layer of villainy.Anyway, one thing that makes this work is that the shift from Groo asterrifying bad guy to cuddly father figure is slight, slow, andcompletely believable. Imagine if you hated kids, or at least had noreal use for them. Then you do find a use and figure you can discardthem later on, only you find it ain't that easy. Never is with kids, isit? The movie could have taken the easier way of having Groo recruitthe kidlets to help him in his nefarious scenes, but instead they havehim blindly pretend nothing is amiss, that the minions are his cousins,and so on. Subtlety is key.The animation is pretty good, about what you'd expect. It was probablya real hoot to see in 3D, but alas I saw it on my home screen, which isstill in 2D and will remain so until the industry has its act together.But even in 2D, it's an exciting, entertaining movie, and it has some3D-oriented surprises during the end credits.

This review is from: Despicable Me (Three-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo) (Blu-ray) My family of five all love movies and we share movie night every Friday. This is just a great movie. The voices are perfect for the characters and surprising! I honestly didn't recognize a lot of them (Steve Carrell's voice as Gru, Julie Andrews as his mom, Jason Segel as Vector and Kristin Wiig as Miss Hattie are some highlights that really add to the enjoyment of the movie and make the characters come alive). One of the reasons this is great is that there are no over the top scary villains or scenes that ruin it for younger viewers but it is entertaining enough for any age. Gru is the villian at the start of the show but they found the right mix of inept violence to make it funny and amusing (not scary). His minions are adorable little "might bean" looking characters from the same genetic mutation and are really funny (the three extra movies are very short but amusing and fun to watch and focus almost exclusively on the minions). The story is a fresh take on the fish out of water tale. Gru wants to capture the moon to get his gusto back but needs three orphans to help him steal a shrink ray from Vector. He intends to use them and then dump them but ends up falling in love with them (as you will) and softens through the film. We received this from Santa and have already watched it three times I highly recommend this family friendly movie with a great story, great and enjoyable characters and great animation (especially on blue ray the colors really come out). Hope there is a sequel and that you enjoy watching it as much as we did!

The criticisms I've seen leveled at "Despicable Me" seem to be mostlythat it isn't original and doesn't measure up to Pixar. My response:True but irrelevant. What this movie lacks in originality it makes upfor with bucketloads of charm, personality and neat little jabs ofhumor for adults as well as kids. The pop culture references includethe Bank of Evil's sign reading "Formerly Lerman Brothers" and theVector/Victor naming of Gru's nemesis - shades of "Airplane!" Steve Carell's Gru is a terrific creation, a villain with a moonfixation who has longed for his mother's love all his life. The threeorphan girls he adopts as part of his nefarious plan to steal the moonquickly worm their way into his heart as he finds out that he lovesbeing a father figure to them. Watching Gru agonize over a schedulingconflict - steal the moon or attend the girls' dance recital? - is justwonderful. I freely admit that I'm a sucker for a happy ending, but I hate feelingmanipulated; "Despicable Me" was a pleasant surprise in that respect.The caliber of the writing and acting in DM ensures that it doesn'tsink into sugary goo. The animation of the characters is alsofantastic, and to see this big guy surrounded by tiny girls is reallysomething. Gru may be slipping into middle age, but compare the way heis drawn with Vector's teeny shoulders and pot belly. The audience ispredisposed to believe him the stronger and more competent of the twovillains, as of course he turns out to be.The minions are fantastic. Though they look almost exactly alike, Gruclearly recognizes each of them as individuals and calls them by name -another endearing trait. Their shining moment comes during the credits,and allow me to say that the film should definitely be seen in 3D forthis reason alone. Bottom line: I loved it. Highly recommended.

I had no desire to watch this but was forced by my teenaged neices. But I thoroughly enjoyed it! The characters are likeable, the animation is wonderful, and the story is cute. Great for all ages!

This review is from: Despicable Me (Single-Disc Edition) (DVD) This movie wasn't promoted much and the previews looked ok, the usual kinds of previews that a lot of times deflate to nothing when you actually see the entire movie. However, this turned out to be a complete surprise. It's a very funny movie, which is extremely well done on all levels - the animation, the voices, the lessons, the pace... everything was done very well.The little minions are so cute - I wanted to buy one or more (unfortunately they movie makers weren't savvy enough this time to produce decent toys - big mistake on their part). The jokes were pretty funny, all throughout the movie. The story was interesting & not exactly predictable.The best thing about this movie was that there was plenty to keep both a kid and an adult interested, laughing & thoroughly enjoying the experience. Can't say the same about too many movies, especially animated ones. Highly recommend this one... I usually don't buy movies, but this one I had to get :)

"Despicable Me" has what has become an almost unheard quantity in anage where sequels, prequels, reboots, TV to movie transfers, video gameto movie transfers and children book to movie transfers -- originality.Unfortunately, it doesn't have much more than light entertainment valueto go with the creativity. Steve Carell voices the hero-villain Gruwith a Russian accent for reasons that seem related to perhaps Steve'sfeeling that he had to do something to earn all the money he was makingfor the voice work. There didn't seem to be anything in the plot thatnecessitated that Gru be Eastern European. Jason Segel voices Vectorthe villain-villain, a character who is nearly wholly uninteresting.The 3 children who eventually soften Gru's heart (oh, like you wereunaware how this would end!) are cute but ultimately forgettable andactually a little whiny. Gru's allergy pill-shaped minions are not thatcute either and also a little whiny. Like Gru's accent no explanationis offered as to just what the hell they are supposed to be. The movietilts a little at trying to be more than just a summer popcorn movie bygiven some insight into Gru's mother's lack of sympathy but thebackstory would have made much more sense if she was the fatherinstead. There is also some hinting at larger issues with Grurepresenting old-fashioned Victorian-house owning villainy and Vectorrepresenting sleek, modern space pod-house villainy but it never reallygoes anywhere. There are some laughs particularly a sign underneath theone announcing "The Bank of Evil" where Gru tries to get a loanindicating that it used to be called "Lehman Brothers" but theygenerally of the slight smile and giggle variety. In short, if there isa heat wave near you and you have kids this is a reasonable way to getcome air-conditioning and darkness time in.

First up, if you're planning to watch "Despicable Me", put on highexpectations because this movie might and will satisfy you with itscomedic adventures.In this movie, I truly love the yellow minions. They are just trulyadorable, cute and funny. If you listen to their language, it'sinsanely hilarious. Their actions are truly silly and laughable. The story is very clever. I truly loved it because it's different thanmost of the other children movies where the protagonist is a good guyrather than having a little bit of a twist where the main character isa villain. Steve Carell's accents on Gru are also excellent. They're unique andamusing. Not only the sounds, the model for Gru is also cool. His noseis like so long that it looks strange like Pinnochio's. The threelittle orphans are also cute especially Agnes, the smallest one. Vectorwas also hilarious.The 3D effects were also good. The depths were really seen and some ofthe scenes really got things towards the audience. So, it's not a badchoice to enjoy it in 3D."Despicable Me" is another must-see movie this summer as it rivals "ToyStory 3" to become the best animated film of 2010. Bring your kids and3D is a good way to enjoy it. In conclusion, this movie gets a perfectrating of 10 stars. By the way, don't miss the scenes in the credits,the 3D effects there are cool.

This review is from: Despicable Me (Three-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo) (Blu-ray) This is a great movie. It has some small scenes of humorous violence but besides that it has a nice story.
Falcon67 (14 May 2013)
This was a fantastic movie. My son and I loved it. We saw the 2dversion and i'm curious as to how good the 3D version is since therewere many scenes that would have been ideal for 3D. I recommend thatyou also watch the end credits, especially if you're viewing the 3Dversion. Gru isn't a very outgoing person as far as showing affectionbut as you watch the movie you will understand as to why he is thisway. The hyperness of the little girls is pretty accurate as any parentwill testify too. There is a scene at the amusement park involving astuffed unicorn that many parents can probably relate to and wish thatthey could have delt with it in the same was that Gru did. I wouldrecommend this movie for everyone to see.

i've got to tell you that the standard of animation movies is reallytouching the sky. this movie is yet another addition to a number ofreally good animation movies in the last few years- "toy story 3","wall-e", "up" and "kung fu panda" just to name a few. the plot of themovie is quite different as the main protagonist of the movie is inreality an anti-hero but never during the movie do you realise this. ithas a bit of warmth, a little sweetness and off course, the emotionalcomponent but the greatest thing about the movie is its humor. in thewhole running time of 1hr and 35 min, you find yourself laughing mostof the times and the movie springs up some really good originality inthe form of "minions" and techie- air as well as road vehicles. thevoice- overs of most of the characters are well done although gru'saccent might appear sometimes as overdone. the only complaint i couldhave were a few clichÃ©d moments of family bonding and the character ofgru's mother. but over all, the movie is a real fun filled ride and amore than nice entertainer.

This review is from: Despicable Me (Amazon Instant Video) To be perfectly fair, my 5 yr old son and his 5 yr old friend loved this movie. I only give it an "ok" because I was looking forward to it making ME laugh with some extra humor for the adult crowd as well. It was cute either way. :)
Hojalataes (12 May 2013)
IMDb 7.6/10 ROTTENTOMATOES 6.8/10 ALLMOVIE 3/5 Two villains fight each other to be the more evil one. One stole apyramid, so the other plans to steal the moon.Great for kids and good for parents. Good acting and animation. Oftencharming and cute without being corny. You see the whole thing comingbut it doesn't matter because it's a fun ride. The Gru character isexcellent. This movie proves that you don't need to be nasty or violentin order to be funny. Probably, the funniest Carrel's performance todate.On the bad side, the film lacks originality sometimes: the little girlis a carbon copy from the Monsters Inc one, one of the minions is NedFlanders' copy and some jokes we have already watched them in otherfilms. I had the feeling that there was something missed several timeswhile watching the film. It doesn't touch you the way Monsters Inc did.It's a mix between Jimmy Neutron, Monsters Inc.It's worth watching.
Dillon Harris (12 May 2013)
Despicable Me is a great movie and its very heartwarmingstuff,Dreamworks haven't done any great movies apart from theShreks,but they seem to be improving because this year we gotDespicable Me and How To Train Your Dragon which were both brilliant.A villain called Gru is competing againt his enemy Vector who stole apyramid up in Egypt which everyone is calling the crime of thecentury,so Gru and his thousands of minions (hillarious) try to make abigger crime by stealing the moon,but they cant do that without ashrink ray which Vector has,so Gru adopts three girls to get them toget the shrink ray off Vector,but Gru starts to feel like the dad ofthe three of them and feel love for them.

Oh , and watch it all, don't leave too early , *hint* :-)
(10 May 2013)
You don't need children around to justify watching this movie. I'm 50-something and laughed and laughed through the entire thing. The little girls and minions are adorable and funny, but so are the so-called villians. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT! I rented this at first to make sure I liked it, but now I'm buying the DVD pack and will buy more if they are produced, which I'm so hoping.
Dawson (08 May 2013)
Since Toy Story 3 is in theatres, it's rather knee-jerk to compareDespicable Me to the animation giant. But you shouldn't. Despicable Medoesn't have the heavy, dark tones of the final Toy Story and,therefore, is probably better suited to smaller children. As with thebest family films, though, adults will love this story as much - if notmore - than their little ones.And here's why. It is incredibly rare to see a single dad portrayed insuch a positive light. While Gru has an admittedly "bad" vocation,there are unbelievably sweet moments between him and the threechildren, probably aided by the juxtaposition of tiny girls to a large,"bad" guy.The nepotistic supporting cast from Saturday Night Live (even JackMcBrayer works for Tina Fey) is fantastic. One pleasant surprise wasfrom Gru's minions: they did not steal the show. Not that theyshould've- the little yellow guys were funny and entertaining, but onewould expect from the previews they would ultimately be the best partof the film... and I'm happy to report that wasn't true.Despicable Me is LOL funny throughout, warm, goofy, and will notdisappoint. I'd say you're a despicable parent if you don't take yourkids to see it immediately.
