10 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Despite the terrible reviews the critics decided to give this movie I decided to go and watch for myself. It seems that all critics like now days are movies with non stop sexual innuendos and sex period. They should realize that this movie is targeted towards kids while at the same time if the adults actually pay attention and listen closely they will enjoy this movie. The animation is splendid and the jokes throughout the film are jokes that any kid would enjoy. Even as an adult I was laughing throughout the entire movie. I mean would the creators of the hit "Despicable Me" really lead you wrong? My answer is no. This movie will leave you hopping out of the theater with nothing but a look of satisfaction. That is of course you don't know how to think like a kid anymore. So if you haven't seen it yet I would more than definitely recommend it to you especially if you have young kids.
