In a happy suburban neighborhood surrounded by white picket fences with flowering rose bushes, sits a black house with a dead lawn. Unbeknownst to the neighbors, hidden beneath this house is a vast secret hideout. Surrounded by a small army of minions, we discover Gru (Steve Carell), planning the biggest heist in the history of the world. He is going to steal the moon. Gru delights in all things wicked. Armed with his arsenal of shrink rays, freeze rays, and battle-ready vehicles for land and air, he vanquishes all who stand in his way. Until the day he encounters the immense will of three little orphaned girls who look at him and see something that no one else has ever seen: a potential Dad. The world's greatest villain has just met his greatest challenge: three little girls named Margo (Miranda Cosgrove), Edith (Dana Gaier), and Agnes (Elsie Fisher).Written by
The girls undercharge Vector (Jason Segel) when they deliver his cookies. Based on the clipboard Margo (Miranda Cosgrove) is holding when they pay him the initial visit, the prices of each of the box of cookies is thus: Coconutties - six dollars, Choco Swirlies - six dollars, Minty Mints - six dollars. Vector ordered four Minty Mints, fifteen Coconutties, two Toffee Totes, and two Caramel Clumps. The Minty Mints and Coconutties alone would cost one hundred fourteen dollars, plus the cost of the Toffee Totes and Caramel Clumps, means that the girls charge of only fifty-two dollars was way below what it should have been.
