Animated Action Adventure - As with the previous two films in the series, this is an animated
comedy/adventure aimed at the whole family. There is some mildly
crude humor and fleeting comic nudity, but most parents will find
this suitable viewing for kids. Fans of returning voice actors Steve
Carell and Kristen Wiig will enjoy, as will those of new addition

Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Above Average ...although the film isn't a must-see for older viewers, it fills a niche. It's a perfectly reasonable option for a family movie outing and isn't so bad that adults will cringe. Having passed through its creative stage, the franchise has become a brand and, as such, it delivers what its core group of consumers want.
Roger EbertFull Review Below Average Despite the problematic storytelling, little kids will probably still like it because it is colorful and noisy and filled with silly slapstick, though my bet is that they won't embrace it to the degree that they did the original.
Rolling StoneFull Review Good Carell is the life of the party and the main reason this animated blast of slapstick silliness packs appeal beyond the PG crowd. The overload of subplots can be wearying, but you'll be laughing too much to complain.
Slant MagazineFull Review Above Average Its wackiness is only occasionally laugh-out-loud funny, but it's still executed with good-natured breeziness. Considering that the cliffhanger ending all but ensures that there will be a Despicable Me 4, here's hoping the franchise continues to push its zany impulses to the limits of common sense.
