I love this movie! My son loved it, too! We watched this on 3D and it was really cool. I love all the characters--even the geeky looking Vector. The minions are too cute, I want to take them home.
Despicable Me is a story of a super villain, Mr. Gru (Steve Carell), who used three orphans (Margo, Edith and Agnes) to steal the shrink ray to Vector (Jason Segel), Mr. Gru's antagonist. He will use the shrink ray to shrink the moon and steal it.
This is a perfect family movie. It shows that even the most evil villains can change and be good, too. It also shows the value of keeping one's promise, to never lose hope and to trust the one you love.
