Hilarious! WHAT A WORK OF ART!!!!

"Liiiiight bulb."

Villainous Gru meets his match in three Girl Scout cookie-selling orphan sisters-- wary big sister Margo, scrappy middle sister Edith, and irresistible little Agnes--who get in the way of his plans to steal the moon as he tries to ensure his rightful place as top super villain of the world and, um, impress his impossible-to-please Mom (voiced by--I kid you not--Julie Andrews). Silly, but with a lot of heart. Steve Carell's voice work as the exasperated Gru is priceless, especially in his interactions with the winning trio whom we know from the first will capture his heart.

This series of movies (1,2,3) are hysterical...the genius is to include dark, non-polite, smarter humor that appeals to us parents as well (perfect combination of the US and French side of Illumination pics maybe?). The Minions are so much fun...

1 and 2 are an experience to be shared with all... 3 is a bit too much with the battles and explosions... the minions mini movies are worth watching as well...

Funny, and inappropriate. The minions speak a hilarious, French, Spanish, English, and Jibberish all mashed together.

I liked this DVD. If you like cartoons, you may like this story. There is the threat of violence; but, it does not happen. The main character is purposely doing bad things to hurt others. The children convert him to being nice and loving. He becomes transformed to work for the good side against the bad elements. There is some reference to the old story "Annie". A bald guy that does not like kids adopts a child. The indifferent male finds love in his heart for the child. No sex scenes to worry about. It is good for all ages.

"Despicable Me" is a movie that has an important lesson in it. It reminds me of the idiom “Don't judge a book a the cover” because even though Gru is considered a villain, he ends up showing the kind part of him. He becomes sweet and has a good heart. This movie shows how important family is by Gru making his daughters his first priority. The minions are super cute, funny, and even helpful sometimes. “Despicable Me” is very entertaining and it will definitely make you laugh. This is a good movie for kids to watch because I believe that they will find it very interesting. I would rate this movie a 4/5. @TheBookieReadingMonster of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

This movie shows that even the toughest of villains still have a soft heart. Super villain Gru has decided that he plans to steal the moon, and enlists his band of yellow minions to help him get the job done. However, when three young orphan girls force their way into his life and make him their dad, his mind begins to change. The combination of funny minions and the outrageousness of Gru, make this movie interesting as he develops from a villain into a loving and caring father. Although annoying at times, this movie is sweet and shows the importance of family. I would rate this film 4/5 stars and recommend it for a family movie night at home. @The_Reviewer of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

This movie follows a man named Gru, an “evil mastermind” who dreams of going to the moon. Funny enough, Gru ends up having to take care of three young girls and be a father figure to them. The once criminal mastermind ends up being a caring father to the three girls. Additionally, the humorous minions make the movie many folds more enjoyable. The main story revolves around Gru racing his nemesis, Vector, to get a shrink-ray in order to capture the Earth’s moon. Gru wants to be on the newspaper headlines once more after failing to make them for so long. Gru is trapped between being a father figure to the three young girls he adopted, and continuing his role as a villain. 3/5
