Well I'll Be, Despicable Me, Huh
I was even left with a “awh” expression. Cute kids, cute alien things, funny main characters. What more could you want. It had good morals and it reminded me so much of, a more child friendly version of Lemony Snicket’s A Series Of Unfortunate Events. I blame the kids on that account. This definitely does not take away from it though. Family film or a couples film, either way it is something that I enjoyed seeing and would even consider buying the DVD to expand my collection.
The film isn’t too long and doesn’t drag like some children’s films do. It’s just fun. My lack of explanation on this film really does me no favours but it is fun. I smiled and I came away feeling warmed from its capitalist, merchandise wanting creators. Well done Universal you caught me. Despicable me a must see.
