Steve Carell’s Gru is a super villain who is shown being shown up by new boy Vector. With his future in doubt , his attempts to get back on top results in the adoption of three little girls. You can guess what sort of effect they have on him.
Despicable Me is very pretty, the girls are very cute and the performances are all decent. It’s fine, but then we meet the minions! Their non-intelligible speech and slap stick completely lifts the film.
As a nice light bit of entertainment Despicable Me is decent. Have a good giggle but don’t expect too much.
