I liked this DVD. If you like cartoons, you may like this story. There is the threat of violence; but, it does not happen. The main character is purposely doing bad things to hurt others. The children convert him to being nice and loving. He becomes transformed to work for the good side against the bad elements. There is some reference to the old story "Annie". A bald guy that does not like kids adopts a child. The indifferent male finds love in his heart for the child. No sex scenes to worry about. It is good for all ages.

This movie follows a man named Gru, an “evil mastermind” who dreams of going to the moon. Funny enough, Gru ends up having to take care of three young girls and be a father figure to them. The once criminal mastermind ends up being a caring father to the three girls. Additionally, the humorous minions make the movie many folds more enjoyable. The main story revolves around Gru racing his nemesis, Vector, to get a shrink-ray in order to capture the Earth’s moon. Gru wants to be on the newspaper headlines once more after failing to make them for so long. Gru is trapped between being a father figure to the three young girls he adopted, and continuing his role as a villain. 3/5
