Despicable MeJane Weathers
Despicable Me is quite possibly the best children's film to come out in a long time.
I took my kids to see it in the cinema when it came out last year, and they both loved it. One is seven, the other is sixteen, and that it appealed to both of them, and to me as an adult, I think is really quite impressive. A lot of films these days made for children tend not to have much appeal to parents, which I think is a real shame. Despicable Me, on the other hand, is an excellent film that seems to have a really broad audience age range, and is one of those few brilliant films able to transcend all ages.
The actors in the film were absolutely perfectly cast for the voices of the characters they play. Steve Carell takes the lead role of Gru, a not-so-evil genius whose grand scheming to become a feared villain never quite comes to fruition. He then finds that in order to succeed, he must adopt three of the most adorable children to have ever existed in animation, particularly the youngest, Agnes.
Despicable Me is just a lot of fun for all the family - parents and kids alike. It's got a lot of laughs in it, but a lot of heart as well, and I think that the combination of the two helps it appeal to everyone. And it of course doesn't hurt that Gru has a team of little minions that, like the adopted children, are incredibly lovable. If you've got kids that haven't yet seen this film, I think there's an almost certain chance that they'd love to see it and would enjoy it right the way through. I know that mine did, and I know that I did.
