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 an army of mischievous little 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. That is, 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.

  • 3 stars "It was cute and most of the characters were likable. The story on the other hand was sub-par: the moral dilemma was forced, the villain was non-threatening, the climax was unexciting, and the ending was predictable. Unlike most animated pictures nowadays, it's more for little kids and less for everyone."
