At the end when MJ's track 'Bad' was playing & Hal was dancing along it, the Warden was seen to play along with two of his guards. Their 'head shaking step' was taken from Saturday night live's "what is love" skit, which also starred Will Ferrell. See more »
When Megamind transforms into different forms, his voice changes to match the character. However, when Megamind transforms into Bernard, his voice remains that of Megamind's. This is explained though as we see the watch recording the warden's voice during Megamind's escape from prison. He didn't get the chance to record Bernard's voice in the rush to replace him in the museum and had to use his own voice. See more »

I found this movie very entertaining and provoking in both thought and emotion. It was also a very human movie. The Buddhist motifs were exaggerated but well woven into the story, and it captured the most common face of evil very very vividly.
Megamind is also biting satire and it spares no one, but has that core of truth. It can be painful to watch, especially when you see yourself.
If you identify with the main character in the movie, you will almost certainly love this movie. The movie also vividly captured many awkward and tragic human situations in a way only animation can.
The voice acting and animation were perfectly suited to the movie and the 3d complemented the movie without being distracting.
I wouldn't classify this movie as one for children. The only fault I can find in this movie is that Megamind finds purpose and fulfilment though and for the heroine. It would be so wonderful if this were indeed a reflection of reality, but it is more a necessity of Hollywood. Few women and superheros can withstand that pedestal for long. The best you can hope for is to find these things along with a women, and even that is rare enough.
