Starring the voices of: Steve Carell, Jason Segel, Russell Brand and Julie Andrews
Story: Gru delights in all things wicked. Armed with his arsenal of shrink rays, freeze rays, and battle-ready vehicles for land and air, he vanquishes all who stand in his way. Until the day he encounters the immense will of three little orphaned girls who look at him and see something that no one else has ever seen: a potential Dad. The world's greatest villain has just met his greatest challenge: three little girls named Margo, Edith and Agnes. (Universal Pictures)
Rated: PG for rude humor and mild action
Bottom Line: ENJOYABLE ME! A witty, funny, energetic movie that’s entertaining for older kids as well as adults. The animation is crisp and clean, the characters interesting and it may even tug on your heartstrings a bit – not to the extent that Woody and Buzz tugged on our heartstrings just two short weeks ago – but there’s some tugging none-the-less. Lump this one in with HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON, SHREK FOREVER AFTER and TOY STORY 3 (the best movie I’ve seen in 2010) and you’ve got an impressive year for animated movies thus far.
