" This Year's COOLEST Animated Comedy!"
-Jeff Craig, Sixty Second Preview
Get Ready For A Minion Laughs In The Funniest Blockbuster Hit Of The Year!
Vying for the title of "World's Greatest Villian," Gru (voiced by Steve Carell) - along with his hilarious crew of mischievous minions - plots to pull off the craziest crime of the century: steal the moon! But when Gru enlists the help of three little girls, they see something in him nobody else has ever seen: the perfect dad. From executive producer Chris Meledandri (Horton Hears A Who!, Ice Age) and featurng the voices of an all-star comedic cast, including Jason Segel, Russell Brand, Miranda Cosgrove and Julie Andrews, Despicable Me is "rouslingly funny, heartfelt and imaginative" (Pete Hammond, Boxoffice Magazine).
After wasting money on several disappointing non-Pixar animated films, I (stupidly) decided to pass on seeing this one in the theater. Which is a shame because this is a very funny and touching movie.
Rated PG (MPAA)
