Despicable Me (2010)
Critic Consensus: Borrowing heavily (and intelligently) from Pixar and Looney Tunes, Despicable Me is a surprisingly thoughtful, family-friendly treat with a few surprises of its own.

Critic Reviews for Despicable Me
I expected another short, simple kids' film with a few jokes and maybe a few loud noises to keep the children interested, but to my surprise, it ended up being much more than that.
A movie that mistakes grotesquery for wit--in other words a perfect vehicle for Steve Carell.
The film benefits immensely from a Carell lead vocal turn that's loopy and droll.
Audience Reviews for Despicable Me
Minions!!!! I want a minion!!!!
Am I the only one or is there anyone else who didn't laugh at all watching this? I felt like slitting my wrists with so many awful physical gags and ridiculous jokes, and it is unbearable to see all that excessive fluffiness and sentimentality. Please, Universal, don't try to be Pixar.
Although the characters are all kinda annoying, the little girls are cute and ground what is otherwise daft Warner Brothers style violent Americana. What really makes this animation though is a really punchy soundtrack that sticks in your head.
