Despicable Me (2010)

A mysterious criminal mastermind has stolen one of the pyramids in Egypt, sparking a fit of jealous envy in evil genius Gru (Steve Carell), who hasn't managed to make headlines since he and his minions swiped the Times Square JumboTron years back. Ever since Gru was a little boy, he dreamed of going to the moon. Now, if Gru can just build a rocket and get his hands on a powerful shrink-ray, he can cement his reputation as the greatest thief who ever lived by stealing the Earth's satellite right out of the sky. But immediately after Gru heists the shrink-ray, the cunning super-nerd Vector (Jason Segel) swoops in and snatches it right out of his hands. Now, in order to claim the moon, Gru must first reacquire the weapon from Vector. Armed with the knowledge that his nemesis has a mean sweet tooth, Gru adopts cookie-selling orphans Margo (Miranda Cosgrove), Agnes (Elsie Fisher), and Edith (Dana Gaier) and commissions a new line of cookie robots from the evil Dr. Nefario (Russell Brand), his personal weapons specialist. But as Gru and his diminutive yellow minions prepare to carry out the biggest heist in history, something strange happens. Gru discovers that the three little girls who have come into his life are much more than simple pawns. They actually seem to care about Gru, and it turns out the scheming evildoer makes a pretty good father. When Gru realizes that his upcoming moon mission clashes with a ballet performance by the girls, he must decide what's more important -- being a present parent or cementing his nefarious reputation once and for all. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      Tell me, what does the most evil supervillain need to have? The moon, of course! Gru is the most despicable person you can ever and will ever meet! Or, he is convinced he is. He brings misery to all and delights in doing so. After a day of evil doings, he returns home to a blackened, scary-looking home. He goes downstairs and you see....his cute, adorable, hilarious, helper Minions! The Minions are more than willing to help out and try new equipment. (Except for Dr. Nefario's potions) After Gru learns he's being left in the dust of the most newest, meanest, rottenest villains, he plans something no one has ever achieved before. TO STEAL THE MOON! Gru always wanted to go to the moon! It was his childhood hope! Now, not only will he go, but he will own it! It seems like an ingenius idea. All he has to get is get a "leetle" fund from the bank for the rocket, and he's good to go! Oh, and his has to steal one of the most expensive and new pieces of technology, a shrink ray, without getting caught. Gru succeeds in getting the shrink ray! But when he is flying home to put it in safe storage, Vector, the villain who put him in the dust, snatches it up! As Gru plans to take back what is "rightfully his", he adopts three girls as part of his scheme. The girls are Margo, Edith, Agnes, and they want him to be a good dad! The plan works, but soon Gru find himself being less villainous than ever! Can Gru decide what is more important: evil, or parenting? --BKS reviews
