DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Animated - Despite its premise dealing with supervillains trying to outdo each other, this animated film is not the dark comedy it sounds like but something very cute and cuddly for the whole family. The digital 3D especially makes it kid-friendly, but main voice star Steve Carell gives the film some adult appeal. Still, some action sequences may be too intense for very young children, and some crude body function gags may be inappropriate to some parents.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good This is a smartly written comedy with a soft emotional core.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good The sad thing, I am forced to report, is that the 3-D process produces a picture more dim than it should be. "Despicable Me” is technically competent and nowhere near the visual disaster that is "The Last Airbender,” but take my word for it:...

USA Today Full Review
Good There's nothing to despise and plenty to celebrate about Despicable Me. A whip-smart family movie that makes inventive use of the summer's ubiquitous 3-D technology is something worth cheering.

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 257 moviegoers:
FANTASTIC REVIEWS FROM EVERYONE! All ages, both males and females, loved "Despicable Me." When most adults rate a kids movie "Fantastic" or "Excellent," like they did here, you can be assured that it's a movie the entire family will love.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
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 deep beneath this home is a vast secret hideout.

Surrounded by an army of tireless, little yellow minions, we discover Gru (Steve Carell), 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. One of the world's greatest super-villains has just met his greatest challenge: three little girls named Margo, Edith and Agnes.
