In a happy suburban neighbourhood surrounded by white picket fences with flowering rose bushes, sits a black house with a dead lawn. Unbeknownst to the neighbours, hidden deep beneath this home is a vast secret hideout. Surrounded by an army of tireless, little yellow minions, we discover Gru (Steve Carell), planning the biggest heist in the history of the world. He is going to steal the moon (Yes, the moon!) to prove to his Mum (Julie Andrews) that he is better than the other super-villains, especially the new kid on the block, Vector (Jason Segal).

Gru delights in all things wicked. Armed with his arsenal of shrink rays, freeze guns 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.

One of the world's greatest super-villains has just met his greatest challenge: three little girls named Margo, Edith and Agnes in the box office hit Despicable Me.

 Best family film for ages !

| | See all Qu1nt1's reviews (1)

Rarely does a film come along that genuinely entertains our whole family (ageing from 5 to 40) from start to finish but this little gem did exactly that.
Steve Carroll is just brilliant & my daughters are still quoting the film weeks after we first saw it.
A must buy !!

Meet Gru - he's a evil mastermind who is having a hard time. Someone stole the great pyramid of Egypt and all he could steal was the Statue of Liberty ... from Las Vegas. The Bank of Evil's stopped trying to fund his increasingly desperate plots, he's a constant disappointment to his mother, and the new villain on the block - Vector - is showing him up at every opportunity. Things only get worse when he meets three orphans who are trying to sell cookies. Gru doesn't have time for cookies - he's trying to steal the moon!
When I saw the trailers I thought "looks alright - but I'll go see Toy Story 3 instead". Truth-be-told, Despicable me was far better. Don't get me wrong, I loved TS3, but it wasn't funny. Moving, yes, but few laugh-out-loud moments. Despicable Me is filled with them, and everyone in the cinema (all of whom were over the age of 18 as we watched it at Uni) was in stitches.
The characters are lovable, the villains (...of the villains) are hateable, the minions are adorable (I don't know anyone who doesn't want a Dave of their own) and the story is so simple it's brilliant.
In the end I saw this 4 times in the cinema, I've asked my parents for this for my 22nd birthday, and I'll be buying it for my college's Film Society as I believe no DVD collection is complete without it. It is the finest film I have seen all year, if not for a long time, and it was so entertaining I never once stopped to think "how much longer do I have left?"
I'm not going to tell you that you HAVE to see it, but if you haven't, give some serious consideration to getting it on DVD - it's worth it.

I never thought this movie would be THIS good. Decided to rent it and watch it with my boyfriend. Had to pause it because we couldn't stop laughing.

It's the funniest movie i've seen in ages!

Loved it

This film was enjoyed by my 15 year old daughter and I at the cinema. It was so good that the happy ending moved me to tears!
I would thoroughly recommend this film and I intend to buy it on DVD when it's released in February. :)

 Good Family Fun !
