Despicable Me

As a child, Gru wanted nothing more than some attention / affection from his mother. This developed into him becoming a villain. He's not the only one. There are so many villains that they have their own bank. There are so many villains that if you need a certain device to complete a diabolical scheme, you need to steal from other villains.

Gru needs a shrink ray to steal the moon. He's going to use adopted girls to do it. But plot isn't important. Neither is 3D (but based on 2D version, there is a lot of stuff coming at you). The voices are funny, the cast is good (Danny McBride is listed and I couldn't even tell you which character he plays).

Plenty entertaining kid fare. Take the family and stay occupied for 2 hours. I was disappointed at one joke. But not at the joke itself. I was disappointed in the audience. When he shrinks the moon they show a scene of surfers on waves as the waves stop and the ocean goes flat. I heard a lot of people audiably go "huh?". Really people? You don't know what affects the tides and waves? Come on.
Did you enjoy it?
Would you see it in theaters again?

Would you buy it?
Possibly for my unborn spawn.

Would you rent it?
More likely for myself.

Would you watch it if you saw it was on TV?
Sure. Why not.
