Movie: Despicable Me

Movie: Despicable Me

I just had to share this movie with you all. I just recently watched it during my vacation and loved it. I’m a sucker for animated movies to begin with and this one is funny and adorable all at the same time.

Here’s the summary from IMDB:

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, 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.

This movie is absolutely, friggin hilarious. Being the evil, yet not so successful villain he is, Gru makes for a funny character to begin with. Add a bunch of nitwit minions, his inventor Dr. Nefario (voiced by Russell Brand) and the adorable Agnes (“It’s so fluffy I’m gonna die!”) and you have an ultimate feel good movie with James Bond like technical inventions and crazy, yet ever failing bad guys. If you want to laugh than this is definitely a fun little movie to watch. Watch the trailer below:
