Despicable Me (2010)


Another contender for your family movie dollars this summer, is Despicable Me, a movie about three orphan girls as they try to make Gru to rethink his plan on stealing the moon. This family animation has quite a few stars doing the voices, and it will not be in 3D.

It’s hard to say if not being in 3D will hurt Despicable Me, but being released in the same month as The Sorcerer’s Apprentice certainly could impact it’s bottom line.

The Official Scoop

In a happy suburban neighborhood surrounded by white picket fences with flowering rose bushes, sits a black house with a dead lawn. Unbeknownst to the neighbors, hidden beneath this home is a vast secret hideout. Surrounded by a small army of minions, we discover Gru (voiced by Steve Carell), planning the biggest heist in the history of the world. He is going to steal the moon. (Yes, the moon!)

Gru delights in all things wicked. Armed with his arsenal of shrink rays, freeze rays, and battle-ready vehicles for land and air, he vanquishes all who stand in his way. Until the day he encounters the immense will of three little orphaned girls who look at him and see something that no one else has ever seen: a potential Dad. The world’s greatest villain has just met his greatest challenge: three little girls named Margo, Edith and Agnes.
