M and I went to see Despicable Me today. M really wanted to see, I did not. CNN Story I've gotten bored with Steve Carell. He seems to play the same two types of guys all the time, either the stupid/nerdy/innocent guy, or the overly confident, socially inept guy. His delivery in his lines, his timing and his tone are so recognizable, that I easily get bored with him in the various roles he plays.
Well, as it turned out, it wasn't as bad as I expected. I think the phony accent he used helped hide some of his traditional delivery. The story was fine, if a little predictable. We were in a theatre surrounded by small children and they seemed to love the movie, so apparently, it was a great movies for kids, a good movie for bigger kids at heart, and had a few funny spots in there as well. For me personally, I would have gotten it on DVD rather than pay the theatre prices to see it, but M wanted to go to the movies, and I always have a good time with her, so why not?
