Despicable Me is perfectly fine by most animation standards. Carell voices Gru, an evil villain who seems to have wandered out of a '70s-era Bond movie. Gru is getting on in years, and his plans for world domination are routinely upstaged by a younger, smarter menace named Vector (Jason Segel). Gru needs one more scheme to get back in the game, so he devises a plan to steal the moon by shrinking it to the size of a silver dollar. But to complete the mission, he must adopt three adorable orphans who are in dire need of a family.
