Not a great movie, but certain Narbonic themes seem to be present - lack of common sense among mad scientists, and the parent issues seem to be familiar somehow. I kind of expected Gru's mom to go 'heh, heh, heh'.... (Much more evil than he is, and quite a bit more competent.) And yes, there are funding difficulties for evil schemes - the hero, err, umm, main character has to go to an Evil Bank for money, with a joke that the bank was formerly Lehman Brothers..

I hope that Gru remains a supervillain, but that the events of the movie channel him into more of a Pink Heart Evil style.

Heh, yeah, I am pretty certain that the Grinch would consider Gru's Heel - Face turn a trifle abrupt... :P

Both villains had parent troubles, but I am fairly certain that the little girls will develop into proper villains with nothing but love and admiration for their mentor.... (Explain again the 'Fluffy Unicorn Death Ray Effect' again, please?)

The Auld Grump, freeze ray!

*EDIT* Title song might do for some....

Is it true he lives in his mother's basement? Because I was into that before it was cool.
