Movie Review: ‘Despicable Me’

Hooray, a summer flick the whole family is going to love! How could you not? Check out the impressive cast: Steve Carell, Russell Brand, Will Arnett and SNL's Kristen Wiig!  

Despicable Me is set in a happy suburban neighborhood. But the story isn't all white picket fences and perfect families. Amidst the minivans lies a black house with a dead lawn. Unbeknownst to the Jones', hidden deep beneath this home is an elaborate secret hideout. Surrounded by an army of adorable yellow minions, we discover Gru (Steve Carell), who plans some of the world's biggest heists. His latest plan? To steal the moon (yes, the moon!) in order to be the greatest villain of all time.

Along his wicked journey, Gru recruits three little orphaned girls - Margo, Edith and Agnes - who wind up changing the course of his life. Sure, there's some 'despicable' things that Gru has done and is planning to do. But it turns out he's just a big 'ole softy! 

This movie will entertain all members of your family, while pulling on your heartstrings. The message of the film is positive, amidst Gru's evil plans. Good wins out over evil, with a strong does of humor and non-stop entertainment. Fun for the whole family!

Despicable Me hits theaters in eye-popping 3D on July 9th.
