    Despicable Me - Mice Chat Reviews

    Just saw this tonight with the family and I must say I haven't laughed this hard in a long time. Loved it, solid 4 out of 5 stars for me. I would say its up there with the first Shrek movie, it has a great story, adorable characters and enough adult humor thrown in with the stupid fun.

    What did you think?

    Re: Despicable Me - Mice Chat Reviews

    Just got back. I can only echo my current Facebook status when reviewing this movie:

    Despicable Me? More like Despicable Meh. I was tempted to walk next door and sit in for the rest of Toy Story 3. There wasn't anything that I absolutely hated about this movie, but for the price of a 3D ticket, I could have been doing so much more with my money...and time.
    What an idiot....

    Yeah, I do that Twitter thing.

    It's getting 79% on Rotten Tomatoes. Not great, but not terrible.

    Certainly not as bad as the 0% that Sorcerers Apprentice is currently getting.

    I liked it a lot. I gave it a 4 out of 5. It was really funny at parts, and extremely heartwarming at the end. Go see it

    Well since our local 4 screen megaplex (ha!) isn't even showing it this week... guess I'll have to wait and hope they have it here next week.

    We didn't see the 3D version, maybe that's why we enjoyed it more. Although I have to say I can't really think of why it would work in 3D, other than the normal sight gags. This story was more about evil and heart coming together. Still need to see Toy Story 3 though, so many good movies to see with the kids, so little time.

    Re: Despicable Me - Mice Chat Reviews

    I just came back from a showing - theater was packed. I agree in that I haven't laughed that hard at a film in a long time - it had a lot of great comedy, lovable (and memorable) characters, and of course the heart that a good animated film requires. I actually teary eyed at the end (I'm sure anyone who's seen the film knows the scene I'm referring to). It's a very sweet film that I thoroughly enjoyed... (if it's worth anything I didn't watch it in 3D).

    5 Stars, easily.

    Re: Despicable Me - Mice Chat Reviews

    Saw it and was a decent movie. Although i feel this one suffered by too much given away in the trailers, still had a lot of laughs. However, take the yellow guys out and you lose a lot of laughs. Hard to rate it I wish that the minions werent relied on so much as their laughs did little to the story, and have to say I almost wish they did a movie with just them almost like a minion side of the story.

    3 stars not great however better then other stuff out there. No where near Toy Story 3 obviously, but still a good movie. I would say see it if you have the spare change.

    the only reason why i wanted to see this movie at first was because of the music.. one of my favorite hip hop artists Pharrell Williams, teamed up with one of my favorite composers Hans Zimmer.. so even if the movie failed in every aspect, i know at least my ears would have been happy.

    but coming out of the movie, i thought it was great!

    but regarding the trailer giving too much away.. i agree: prior to seeing the movie, i felt like all the funny parts were already shown in the trailer.. but i was pleasantly surprised to see all the heartfelt moments the movie had to offer, so it made up for that small loss, in my opinion.

    Re: Despicable Me - Mice Chat Reviews

    My daughter and I saw it Friday after I picked her up from preschool, we both liked it a great deal.

    The best way I can sum it up would be: It's not as good as Toy Story 3, but when they come to home video later this year, I predict Despicable Me will be watched more often.
