Movie Review: Despicable Me (2010)

In a happy suburban neighborhood surrounded by white picket fences with flowering rose bushes, sits a black house with a dead lawn. Unbeknownst to the neighbors, hidden beneath this home is a vast secret hideout. Surrounded by a small army of minions, we discover Gru planning the biggest heist in the history of the world. He is going to steal the moon, yes, the moon. 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. Release Date:July 9th, 2010

Staring: Steve Carell, Jason Segel and Russell Brand


When I was deciding what movie to take my kids to see, this one came to mind because I thought it might be like “Shrek”, fun for adults to watch too. The movie was enjoyable but it defiantly didn’t make me or my boyfriend laugh too often. My children seemed to love it, they were laughing a lot and they didn’t take their eyes off the screen. I think this is a good children’s movie but I don’t think it will be as popular as say, “Shrek” or “UP”. Those movies entertained both the child and the parent where as this movie really only entertained the child. I would recommend this to any parent, it wasn’t boring and I enjoyed it but I probably won’t ever watch it again.

My Rating: A-
