the lowdown: When a mysterious newcomer named Vector (voiced by Jason Segel) steals the Great Pyramid of Giza, Gru (voiced by Steve Carrell) decides to pull off the greatest heist EVER: stealing the moon! But, then he meets his greatest challenge in a form of 3 little girls, Margo, Edith and Agnes.
what's the buzz?: The tale of a villain and having his heart melt by adorable children is not really original. However, this movie blends these two things together perfectly with a dose of humour, action and plenty of heart in it. The star-studded voice cast handled their characters well. Most of them changed their voice which render them familiar. This is particularly refreshing with Julie Andrew casts as Gru's mother. Steve Carrell is pretty fantastic as Gru. Unique and very amusing. Even the look of Gru is cool with his nose so long like Pinnochio and hooked like Severus Snape. The three little girls were also cute especially the youngest one, with her Puss in Boots expressions. Even Russell Brand as Dr Nefario was an unexpected delight!
what's the fuzz?: Nothing that I can think of hand. I remember laughing my head off throughout the movie. LOL. Maybe Universal should start on a Minions sequel.
roundup: The plot has enough twists and turns to keep things interesting. I love the adorable Minions with their antics, which kept things fun. Soundtrack was surprisingly great by Pharrell Williams. Despicable Me impresses with a great effort by Universal.
