Despicable Me

Despicable Me is a 2010 animated comedy. What a delight! All of us like this so much I regret it wasn't around when the kids were young. I can hardly wait for the sequel.


Moria loves it and says,
The appeal of Despicable Me lies not in the question of whether the character and his arc are original (as other critics knocked it for), the effect lies in the strength with which it is played and the downright hilarity and sweetness of everything that comes in between.
Slant Magazine calls it "a perfect, though unambitious, diversion". Rolling Stone gives it 3 out of 4 stars and closes by saying it "puts a smile on your face that will last all the way home." Roger Ebert calls it " funny, energetic, teeth-gnashingly venomous". Rotten Tomatoes has a critics score of 81%.
