No spoilers, no endless movie review, just a note that Despicable Me is well worth the price of a ticket. It was a bit slow to get moving, but once it does, it is funny, sweet, touching, and entertaining.
Gary, the kids, and I took up almost an entire row of the theater, and all of us enjoyed the movie. I thought Gary was going to fall out of his seat laughing during the “I said dart gun” scene, and the kids repeated their favorite lines all weekend. I watched the movie over the top of tousled blonde curls, since Dove ended up in my lap and sat still about as well as a Mexican jumping bean.
Overall, 6 thumbs up (one thumb for each of us!)
P.S. Another movie well worth watching is Inception.
