Well, it seems that this is going to be one long summer after all. My mom and my little brother have both shipped out to pakistan for the summer. I really miss that little guy. Before he left I took him to see Despicable be and let just say that it might just be the best movie of the summer.
Despicable me is a movie about a guy who in his heart will always be a boy. The story is about this guy whose main goal in life is to get recognised. Even as a child he was just brushed aside even though he desperately tried to gain his mothers approval. But his mom never gave it to him. I did understand why towards the end of the movie so major props to her for being a bitch to him this whole time. It’s called parenting.. Everyone has their own style.
The movie starts out with a group of tourists in egypt visitting the great pyramids and due to a kid being a spoiled brat everyone finds out that someone had stolen the great pyramid. News spread fast of this epic heist and people in the villan world automatically assumed it was Mr. Gru (the main character). But turns out that Gru had nothing to do with it and so was equally surprised at the news. Now before this heist it seemed that Gru was the badest and greatest super villan around but due to the heist of the pyramid he no longer could hold that title. Due to this event he brought forth the idea of stealling the moon.
He finds out that this kid named Victor a.k.a vector had stollen the pyramid and now was after his idea of stealling the moon. So obviously there is a feud between them two now. As you may recal through the previews that there are 3 girls in the movie. These 3 kids are orphans who are in foster care. One day Gru sees them sellling cookies and they were able to enter Vector’s empire without being harmed.
Let me backtrack a bit and just mention that it is physically impossible to steal the moon. Physically impossible unless you have a shrink ray 🙂 which the ‘government’ seems to be developing. Go figure. Maybe the obesity problem was getting out of control so they started making it. Who knows. Maybe they relised the black people were too well endowed and so to make themselves feel better they produced something to shrink their shlongs to shlorts. *shrug*. So Gru steals this shrink ray from the government and then Vector steals it from him.
Now that Vector has the shrink ray Gru is adamant and hell bent on getting it back. Once he realises that the three girls selling cookies have access to Vectors home he adopts them and that’s where all the fun starts.
Alot happens between Gru the super evil villan and the three girls. I’ll let Gru tell you the story about the unicorn and the 3 kittens.
The movie is very funny and definitely worthy of the 5/5 along with the balphy’s approval for fun and laughter.
Watch it. Love it. Enjoy it.
