"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 home is a vast secret hideout. Surrounded by a small army of minions, we discover Gru (voiced by Steve Carell), planning the biggest heist in the history of the world. He is going to steal the moon. (Yes, 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, Edith and Agnes." Written by Universal Pictures

I have not seen this movie yet, but have wanted to for a while. So here are the opinions of two kid-movie experts: my 7-year-old brother Jason and my 8-year-old sister Michelle. Jason loved the minions and Gru and now wants to become a "super villain just like Gru". He walks around the house quoting the minions and using his "shrink ray" on our cats. He didn't find any of it scary and cheered on Gru to the end. Michelle on the other hand loved the 3 girls -Agnes, the littlest one, is her favorite. Shelly found the carnival scene with the unicorn to be hilarious and is by far her favorite part. Both kids laughed until the end and are jealous they can't come to Pullman this weekend to see it again. My parents also found the movie to be pretty awesome and funny as well.

This is definitely a movie that has humor for both adults and kids, so I totally recommend it for all to see this weekend. As usual, the movie is free for WSU students and $2 for the public. I'll be taking my Dad for sure.
