DESPICABLE ME (Theatrical Release USA 2010)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.4|5.0 Starsìììì

Despicable Me—
creatively fresh, witty—becomes an ‘absolute watch’ film from its beginning to its end. Adults will appreciate the comedic element as much as the child. Kudos to Directors Pierre Coffin and Chris Ranaud. Terrific production by Illumination Studios.
