"He's so fluffy, I'm gonna die!"
If you have a pulse and contain normal, sensitive, human feelings, it is really hard to NOT to like Despicable Me. The film is quite straight forward and to the point in terms of a plot, and really isn't overly quirky in anyway, however, the attractable characters make the film. This is seen in the relationships Guru has with the three girls, Dr. Nefario, and his minions which makes the aspiring "villain" a sympathetic figure.
Plus, Despicable Me, is filled with funny and smart quips for adults. My personal favorite being the scene where Guru goes to the "Evil Bank" which has a small underscore that states, "formerly known as Lehman Brothers". Good stuff. And of course, how can you not openly accept the three girls in the movie?
All in all, Despicalbe Me is cute. It's funny. It's an easy watch. And of course, it's very entertaining.
