Review – Despicable Me

One of the greatest challenges facing the creators – especially the writers – of kids’ movies is coming up with ways to keep them from getting way too treacly. One possible solution: make the bad guy the main character. In this production, a supervillain trying to outdo a rival adopts three orphaned girls as part of a scheme to infiltrate his competitor’s lair. Our antihero’s transformation from evil genius to loving dad follows predictable paths, but it’s still an entertaining story. The animation is good. And of course the Minions steal the show. Maybe I was just in an unusually good mood when I saw this, but I found it a fun experience. Mildly amusing
