Storyline

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

Goofs

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 »

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!

One of the most underrated films ever
27 September 2019 | by FirstNameLastName24See all my reviews

Megamind is genuinely funny, entertaining, and emotional. It appeals to adults as much as kids, as some of its jokes are actually clever as opposed to the stale fart and butt jokes of "Minions". The stellar, A-list cast includes Will Ferrell, Tina Fey, Jonah Hill, Ben Stiller, Brad Pitt, David Cross and J.K Simmons, which is an extremely impressive lineup for an animated film. This is an underrated but highly enjoyable movie that doesn't receive the love it deserves.
