Despicable me (95 minutes)
“Despicable Me” is a sweet, warm-hearted animation that tugs at the heart at moments. It is a different take on movies with the villain being the main character this time instead of a hero with Steve Carell as the voice of an evil genius named Gru who is trying to compete with other evil genius masterminds for being the baddest of them all. He attempts this by coming up with a scheme to steal the moon and along with the help of his minions (who consume most of the humor of the movie) and three innocent orphan girls who just want to be adopted and loved he puts his plans into action. Good movie that is cleverly made with plenty laughs and good animation to make it a worthwhile see. “Despicable Me” is rated PG for crude humor and mild action.
