One of the biggest hits of the summer, Despicable Me tells the story of Gru, the second most nefarious villain in the history of the world. A man with big ideas but poor execution skills, Gru is evil incarnate. He takes pleasure in the little things, too, such as cutting in line at Starbucks and popping children’s balloon animals. “Evil incarnate” may be a stretch, though, considering he’s just adopted three little girls. They were meant to be pawns, but he’s falling for them and their childish antics. Still, love won’t stand in his way to pull off his penultimate plan: to steal the moon.
