The film has those moments that work for kids and adults -- sometimes on different levels, like the scene when he's reading to his newly adopted daughters.
"Despicable Me" is a fun adventure aimed purely at keeping you entertained. And, for some reason, for kids, gas jokes always bring on the giggles.
"Despicable Me" is being sold as a big 3-D adventure. I saw it in 3-D but I don't think you really need those effects to enjoy it.
For the most part, it has an old-fashioned feel and I like that.
It's rated PG, and it's simple, sometimes silly, fun.
