Despicable Me stars a sharp-nosed super villain named Gru (Steve Carrell) who has these funny, yellow minions, and lives in a dark evil looking house. He finds out that someone has stolen one of the pyramids, making all the other villains look "lame." Gru, then, comes up with a plan to steal the moon using a shrink ray to shrink it down to the size of a baseball, but unfortunately he does not own this shrink ray; these group of elephant shrinking men possess it.
The Bank of Evil (it was once Lehman Brothers) will not fund his evil plot until he gets this shrink ray. After a short time, Gru steals the ray, but a villain named Vector, a nerdy man that wears an orange tracksuit, steals it from him. The movie takes off that Gru tries to steal that ray from him, trying every way possible, but failing in every attempt. The only people he saw that gained entrance to Vector's lair were these three little orphan girls selling Girl Scout cookies.
He adopts the little girls as a means of getting cookie robots to help him get the ray. During the film, though, Gru starts to get close to the three little girls, and has a change of heart.
Despicable Me is a funny, entertaining, and heartfelt film for everyone of all ages. It does have a few annoying potty jokes like most modern animated films, but it's easy to ignore when you look at the whole thing.
