“**** 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).

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.
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...
I enjoyed this so much that I purchased a "Kyle" doll for my cat's cat tree. When my dog saw it, he decided it was the best toy ever, so I ended up purchasing a second, just for him!
Normally, I like gritty, real-life dramas, such as Breaking Bad, but this was an oasis of fun in a world all-too-full of darkness!
So i went to watch Despicable me 2 at the cinema, it was fun and entertaining.., the minions were cute and funny.
But then again. I was more interested to know about the first movie, so i placed my order on this product.
Despicable Me (Single-Disc Edition)
I am glad i am not disappointed. Infact, this first movie has a much better storyline that touches people's heart more. Especially about the plot on how the girls changes Gru's heart and they even tried to fulfilled his dream...
Gru, to me, is not really a villain, a bad guy maybe, but, more of the time, he sort of alittle mischievous and funny, i won't consider someone that loves kids as evil person so... :)
So.., if you have never watch this before, i would recommend this movie, as you will find more meaningful and touching story in than the second one.
I personally enjoy this more than despicable me 2, which mainly focus on the minions... Thus, kids will love the minions more, but i have to love Gru after watching this... :)
The content of this piece of DVD is fair, the making of the movie is divided to several different parts, it also have interactive quizzes if you want to have some fun. :)
Overall, Good product, great animation movie, and love the story. :)
p/s: Pardon my language as English is not my first language, thanks for reading.
As an adult (64 years plus) I enjoyed the story line. So if you are an adult go ahead and watch the movie and enjoy.
In a few days I will watch Despicable Me 2 in 3D and hopefully I will just as pleased. I have already placed my pre-order for the Minions 3D movie with Amazon.
One recommendation I have is to continue to watch the movie through the credits.
