My Thoughts

I give the Despicable Me 3 Blu-ray a B.

This is a cute and fun film to watch with the entire family.  You don’t need to watch the previous films to know what is going on in this one.  Be forewarned, there may be scenes that will cause you to shed a tear or two.

I absolutely loved the Minions.  Even though you couldn’t understand what they were saying, in many ways you did with their body language and gestures.  They had me rolling out of my seat throughout the film.  My favorite scene was when the Minions were in jail (you’ll have to see it for yourself).  Gru, though a villain had a soft side.  His interactions with Agnes, who filled the screen with her cuteness, had you in awe.  You may even shed a tear with some of the heart-warming scenes.  I could totally relate to Margo.  She not only kind of looks like me but, she reminded me of myself when I was a teenager.

Catch Despicable Me 3 out on Blu-ray, Digital, & DVD December 5th!
