Saw it with my kids this weekend.

Not good, and Steve Carell has jumped the shark.

That is all.

Why is it not good and how did he jump the shark?

Ridiculously predictable story, poorly developed characters, trite dialogue.  Carells' fake accent was terrible.

The commercials looked like the accent may have been much.

I saw it and we both thought it was funny in parts.  No, I won't be buying or renting it though.





It was predictable.   I wish I would have seen it in 3d just for that rollercoaster scene.

It wasn't entirely bad, IMO. I expected much worse, given my general dislike of Steve Carell.



I liked the sign on the bank that said, "Bank of Evil ("Formerly Lehman Brothers")".

My kids and I, liked it.

I thought it was OK.  And, there aren't many kid movies that aren't utterly predictable.

I think I was the only person in the theater that saw that and laughed.

Saw the previews, which are supposed to be the best parts.  Feh.  I'll pass.
Saw the preview for Carell's new movie, "Dinner With Schmucks."  Looks horrible.

Hollywood has gone nuts with Carell, enough is enough.  Leave him to the small screen for awhile.

I took my daughter to see it for her birthday. We both thought it was funny. It was predictible but it was good. It is a kids movie, if the kids like it then it is good
Link Posted: 7/18/2010 5:24:01 PM EDT
Definitely predictable, but had funny bits. Seen better, seen worse.
Link Posted: 7/18/2010 5:25:59 PM EDT
I saw the movie in 3D. The thearter gave us the wrong glass

The movie itself was great..
Link Posted: 7/18/2010 5:27:52 PM EDT
I thought it was better than Toy Story 3, but my wife thinks I'm the real Gru and my opinion may be biased.

Did anybody else notice that the mini henchmen look like little yellow pills?

My 8 year old nephew saw that movie about a week ago, and said it was the funniest movie he has seen yet.

But then, he still thinks smelling peoples feet is funny. So take it all with a grain of salt. I know I'm not planning on watching it.

See I liked it. Little one wanted to go so I mom and I took her. She fell asleep about half way through, I stayed glued to the screen the whole time

I saw it last night and thoroughly enjoyed it.  Not the best cartoon I've ever seen, but it was worth seeing.  The 3D effects were really cool.

When he made a TV show where ever week the premise was I'M A RETARD

He's following down the Will Ferrell/Adam Sandler path, way too much saturation without the proper amount of hilarity to accompany it.

saw it in 3D, thought it was decent

It's a cartoon.

 



On top of that, it's not a Pixar movie which means it won't be a major hit.  Pixar owns the animated genre.

I must have missed the part of Steve Carrell's career where the character he played wasn't an awkward, likable, witty guy who overcomes the odds to triumph in the end.

I loved it, predictable sure but kids movies generally are.  I laughed my ass off the first time he read the bedtime story.

My son liked it, we got to spend some time together, thats all I cared about........

I would agree.  Who knows how many kids movies I've taken my daughter over the years.
Link Posted: 7/19/2010 7:59:25 PM EDT
I laughed quite a bit at the 2D version, loved the minions.
I would not but the DVD but still enjoyed it, you could wait for it to go on Netflix.

Did the turn out to be a good guy in the end?

We saw it w/ some freinds, 4 adults and 4 kids.  We all liked it.  It's kids movie...  Not "Gone With the Wind".
