I watched the pre-released clips for 22 minutes straight. Sent the trailer to two of my sisters and my brother. My boyfriend and I convinced his parents to take us to see it the opening weekend. And we laughed. Hard.
Despicable Me had me entertained from the very first previews, airing way in advance for its July 2010 release. Scenes depicting yellow-“Monsters INC”-like minions with high voices and shrieking, contagious laughs got me thinking this would be another worthwhile Pixar film. However, when I learned it was a Universal Film I’ll admit, I was impressed, but skeptical at what the outcome would be.
The plot followed a super-villain Gru, voice of Steve Carrell, who ends up adopting three little girls in order to achieve a master robbery. The little girls are probably the funniest part of the movie, especially the youngest, Agnes.
This clip explains everything and pretty much why I went and saw the film.
Although at the end of the movie, I didn’t feel how I did after “UP” or “Finding Nemo”, I had enjoyed the characters of Despicable Me.
