This Year’s COOLEST Animated Comedy!” – Jeff Craig, Sixty Second Preview
Get ready for a minion laughs in the funniest blockbuster hit of the year!
Vying for the title of “World’s Greatest Villain”, Gru (voiced by Steve Carell) – along with his hilarious crew of mischievous minions – plots to pull off the craziest crime of the century: steal the moon! But when Gru enlists the help of three little girls, they see something in him nobody else has ever seen: the perfect dad. From executive producer Chris Meledandri (Horton Hears a Who, Ice Age), and featuring the voices of an all-star comedic cast, including Jason Segel, Russell Brand, Miranda Cosgrove and Julie Andrews, Despicable Me is “rousingly funny, heartfelt and imaginative” (Pete Hammond, Boxoffice Magazine).

Despicable Me has one thing that none of the sequels had. A true villain. No, not the antagonist Vector I am talking about Gru. Gru, for at least the first half of this film, is a proper bad guy. When one of the girls apparently is crushed in a torture device Gru’s reaction is that his scheme will still work with two of them. This, of course, gives Gru a proper character arc in this film which leads to taking out the tissues at the end. (Why is it always kids movies that start the waterworks with me).
The rest of the film is also top notch with the minions ( Yes a slightly less obnoxious version of Ubisoft’s Rabbids) fully formed and delightful, Gru’s evil cohorts delightful and a macabre world that seems to live just on this side of an Addam’s family cartoon. The three girls are well drawn (character wise) with distinct and easily recognizable personalities and the whole story is some nice slapstick silliness with great call outs for the parent's in the room (That Godfather reference was particularly well placed)
Overall a great start to what ended up being a fun franchise that never was quite as good as its first outing.
Out of both films, I like this one best- it's slightly more clever and "sharp" than the sequel. I still think it's one of the funniest films we've seen in the past several years (kid-friendly and non-kid-friendly movies included)- there are things in "Despicable Me" that will appeal to kids and then there are little things included throughout the movie that are designed to appeal to the grown-ups who watch the movie with them that the kids don't get. I kinda like that.
Whether you have seen this movie a zillion times or you haven't had a chance to watch it yet, I highly recommend just going ahead and adding it to your movie collection. It's silly, clever fun. And sometimes that makes for the very best movies.
He's somewhat old in the super villain world and doesn’t seem to be able to pull off the eye popping heists that the younger super villains are. There’s a definite feeling that his best days are behind him. That makes him identifiable with much of the audience. There’s also the added element of “well if I pull off this one big thing or moment, I’ll be back on top.” So you have this great quest and feeling that people can identify with + some Minions and you have something really entertaining.
Add in a particularly obnoxious younger super-villain and three little girls who slowly bring out the better in Grew and the viewer surprisingly finds themselves rooting for Grew in one of the greatest double turns in recent history. Even better, I as a 33 year old man who has grown somewhat cynical was laughing out loud and totally lost myself while watching Despicable Me, even if in some ways it isn’t quite right.
what a great story and plot. the bad guy (evil villain) has a heart. the abundance of minions makes this movie a lot more fun. they speak minion that has a little spanish, english, and a bunch of other things thrown in. fast talking, but understandable when the story line is followed. the creation of minions led to the follow up movies, but with greater digital features. this was a great introduction to the minions and their quirky personas...

Play this and go back into your second childhood... with some clever adult twists.
The voice cast is universally magnificent and the script is perfect with enough bite to keep parents interested and enough broad comedy and crude jokes to make children scream with laughter.
The moral and emotional impact are done fairly subtly and not hammered home which adds to it's effectiveness for me.
I would recommend this to all parents (as long as you are prepared for the minion love in that will no doubt follow)
Boy was I wrong. It's an AMAZING film, super funny for both kids and adults and is simply a little gem of a movie.
I was so impressed that I couldn't wait for Despecable Me 2 and I nearly had to be thrown out of the cinema for laughing!
LOVE LOVE LOVE it.
BUY THIS MOVIE.
