The film was originally titled "Master Mind". However, the name had already been trademarked by the makers of the 1970s board game and TV show Mastermind (1972), so it could not be used. It was then going to be titled "Oobermind", which was a misspelling of the term "über-mind." The word "über" refers to something that is large or great; in this case, the title character's over-swollen skull/brain. But it didn't sound right, so it was revised to become "Megamind". See more »
When Megamind, disguised as Bernard, is in the library with Roxanne, the book he reads before the next scene is titled 'Megamind Unmasked'. The back of the book is actually a summary of a different book, 'The Happiest Me I Can Be' which is a book not seen until later into the movie. See more »

Every so often I watch a film with limited enthusiasm, simply because I have time me to kill. On these occasions I sometimes stumble across a true delight and am pleasantly surprised...a film that maybe had "mixed" reviews or that received little attention upon its release. Megamind is such a film; a great work of animation and character development.
The film should delight adults and children with enough in it to satisfy all tastes. There is also plenty of amusing and hilarious satire with regard to superhero movies and super villains.
Many superheros and villains are often depicted as wholly good or wholly bad, having at best some traumatic event setting them on their inevitable and unchangeable course. This film actually highlights certain sources of inner turmoil and insecurities of the characters in a very entertaining way and develops the characters as they work these out.
There's also plenty of rip roaring action on the way.
Great stuff! Highly recommended!
