Despicable Me - Movie Synopsis & Plot

In a happy suburban neighborhood surrounded by white picket fences with flowering rose bushes, sits a black house with a dead lawn. Unbeknownst to the neighbors, hidden beneath this home is a vast secret hideout. Surrounded by a small army of minions, we discover Gru (voiced by Steve Carell), planning the biggest heist in the history of the world. He is going to steal the moon (Yes, the moon!) in Universal’s new 3-D CGI feature, Despicable Me.

Gru delights in all things wicked. Armed with his arsenal of shrink rays, freeze rays, and battle-ready vehicles for land and air, he vanquishes all who stand in his way. Until the day he encounters the immense will of three little orphaned girls who look at him and see something that no one else has ever seen: a potential Dad.

The world’s greatest villain has just met his greatest challenge: three little girls named Margo, Edith and Agnes.

MOVIE REVIEW

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.
