“Despicable Me” – 6 out of 6 thumbs up
Plot Summary: 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 (voiced by Steve Carell), planning the biggest heist in the history of the world. He is going to steal the moon (Yes, the moon!) in Universal’s new 3-D CGI feature, “Despicable Me.”
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.
Ange and Rob Alex took their three kids to see this movie opening day. Aleena Alex is seven, Dorian Alex is almost five and Braeden Alex is three years old. The Alex children gave this movie six out of six thumbs up!
Here is what they had to say about it:
Aleena: “It was a happy movie. It was also very funny! I thought Gru was very funny and his minions were hysterical. I really liked the part where the minions were making copies of their butts on the copying machine.”
Dorian: ” I liked the movie because it was very funny especially the beginning where Gru pops the little boys balloon after he gave it to him. I also laughed a lot at the tiny potty part.”
Braeden: ” I liked the story Gru read at the end of the movie.”
I would like to state that this movie is very kid friendly and very enjoyable. I would recommend children of all ages see this film. It is touching and sad, funny and strange! Loved it!
