Trivia

The first animated franchise that originated in 1.85:1 to have a 2.35:1 aspect ratio for its third movie since Rugrats Go Wild (2003). See more »

Goofs

When Gru and Dru hook onto the side of the cliff, the hook doesn't hook at the very top. When they drove over the top and landed, that wouldn't have been possible as the hook didn't reach the top, and thus couldn't pull them all the way to the top.

Why it's incorrect: When the car lands on the side of the cliff, the tires grow spikes & the hook is detached. The car drives on the side of the cliff & over the top using its spiky tires, not the hook. See more »

Despicable Me 3: Inferior but enjoyable
19 June 2018 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

Okay fine I'll admit it I'm a big Despicable Me fan and I love minions, don't judge me!

I thought both of the first two Despicable Me movies were fantastic and to a lesser extent enjoyed Minions (2015) so logically I was going to enjoy this, but did I?

Well it has the same charm, it has the great voice talent, it has a stellar soundtrack and it has minions! What is there to dislike?

Well I don't dislike it but truth be told it's not on par with the other movies, I don't know quite what it was but I just wasn't feeling it this time as a lot of the jokes missed their mark, the minions took a backseat and the twin brother aspect of the plot was a tad weak.

Regardless Despicable Me 3 is a lot of fun for all the family complete with lots of jokes that the parents will appeciate and a great retro 80's soundtrack.

Being a big South Park fan I really appreciated the work put into this by Trey Parker, he's a multi-talented fella as demonstrated here.

The franchise still has life in it and hopefully won't be going away anytime soon.

BANANA!

The Good:

Great soundtrack

Same ol'charm

Trey Parker

The Bad:

Story is weaker than previous films

Things I Learnt From This Movie:

Giant titan mechs can be made by one single person in a matter of days

Trey Parker needs more voice work

I want a uni-goat!

If she doesn't get fluffy back in the next movie I'm rioting.........awkwardly..........by myself
