Goofs

When Minion confronts Megamind about dating Roxanne Ritchie, Megamind disables Minion's arm. When Megamind says maybe he doesn't want to be the bad guy anymore, Minion recoils with a gasp and lifts both arms in surprise which he shouldn't have been able to do with a disabled arm. Minion is then shown driving away on his Segway, and his arm is once again disabled. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
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 tabioskSee 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!
