David Weaver from Home And Theater writes: Like I do for most Dreamworks released animated films I stayed away from this one upon its initial release because of my fear that it would be filled with non-stop pop culture references and a star studded cast that only added their names to put up on the marquee as opposed to any actual contribution of talent. The first trailers for Megamind did nothing to alleviate that feeling, everything looked by the numbers. Beyond the obviousness of having Will Ferrell doing his usual shtick in voice form and what looked like a fairly unfunny whimsical look at superheros I was struck with a sudden sense of deja vu when watching the trailer. The plot looked like a complete rip off of Joss Whedon's web series Dr. Horrible's Sing-along-blog with a villain that was in love with a good natured woman who only had eyes for the slick talking and scumbag bashing superhero. I am happy to report that this film is none of that.
