Surprisingly Good!!! Worth watching once.,
This review is from: Despicable Me (Single-Disc Edition) (DVD)
Okay, first let me be clear. I in no way wanted to go and see this movie. Why did I go? Well that is what you have to do when you have a 10 year old brother and the parents don't want to take him to see it. Anyway, twenty minutes into the movie I started to think that the movie was okay for younger children, because it was quite a silly plot line (the main aim in the plot is that they want to shirink the moon) and was maybe lacking in some emotion. However, I have to admit by the end of the movie I quite enjoyed it, you really get to see Gru (our villian turned dad),on his journey and see the changing emotions he has to go through, not to mention the decisions he has to make. Some of the scenes our quite touching and some of the dialogue is quite humerous.
Now I just want to mention the cast, there is a very good cast including the very funny Steve Carell, Jason Segal, Julie Andrews, Russell Brand leading the cast but of course I have to give credit to the actresses who played the three girls Miranda Cosgrove who was excellent playing the smart older sister, Dana Gaier as the moody teenager and finally there is Elsie Fisher who at about 8 years old is a natural.
So overall I think that this is a great family movie, the kids will enjoy it more but I enjoyed it and I am a 16 year old girl, however i think that it isnt a movie I would watch over and over again but I think children would.
It is definatley worth a watch.

Seriously? She said it was worth watching once, because she watched it once, and has obviously decided that for her, it is not worth her time watching it again. You don't have to watch something twice before you decide whether or not you want to spend the time to watch it again. She also said she thought kids would enjoy watching it a lot.
And what the heck is up with with the "I bet you are really a 17 year old, perhaps even almost 18 years old."? Who cares how old she is, and why would a difference of 1 - 2 years matter?
I seriously do not understand people who attack other reviewers just for having a different opinion. Your second comment is just as ridiculous, if not more so, than your first.

Wayne, this is her opinion. She thinks it is only worth watching once. What's the big deal? You have a different opinion, hurray for you. This is her review of the movie. Make your own and don't make yourself feel better by beating down another's review. Who cares how old she is. Why would she lie? Lets be smart here.
