After super-villain Megamind (Ferrell) kills his good-guy nemesis, Metro Man (Pitt), he becomes bored since there is no one left to fight.

Trivia

There are numerous references to Superman in this film. These include: - The way Megamind's parents put him in a capsule to Earth just before his planet is destroyed - The love interest is a reporter - Hal's "space dad" is obviously modeled after Marlon Brando as Superman (1978)'s father in Richard Donner's film version - Almost all of Metroman's super powers are the same as Superman's - Megamind's pronunciation of Metro City has the same stress pattern as 'Metropolis' in Superman - Megamind's alter ego Bernard wears glasses like Clark Kent. - In the Metro Man Museum, there's a statue of Metro Man preparing to catch an airplane. This is a reference to John Byrne's 'Superman' comics, where Superman made his first appearance by catching a plane and saving Lois Lane. See more »

Goofs

When Megamind dehydrates Bernard and then assumes Bernard's likeness as his disguise, he scoops up Bernard's eyeglasses and cellphone from the sky-walk. In the credits extra scene, when Bernard pops up out of the washing machine after being re-hydrated, his glasses are askew on his face. See more »

Megamind: Here's my day so far: went to jail, lost the girl of my dreams and got my butt kicked pretty good. Still, things could be a lot worse. Oh, that's right... I'm falling to my death. Guess they can't. How did it all come to this? Well, my end starts at the beginning... The very beginning!

Possibly The New Shrek!
12 August 2011 | by See all my reviews

I don't remember the last time I enjoyed an animated movie this much! One reason being the gorgeous 3D animation-I mean...look at Minion's dome! I was gee-king inside and out on how detailed this movie is from the characters to the scenery. Every time I watch the movie, I always spot something new! Megamind shouldn't have been advertised as a full blown comedy, because this movie held plenty of deep lessons to be learned and so laughter was a little on the offside at times, but those tender moments were probably the best part of the movie! Will Ferrell, Tina Fey, and especially David Cross impressed me with their voice acting talent! I felt as though they ARE the characters...it just felt real to me.

Megamind has a lot of great lines and is a great family film! A must see!
