The just-released animated comedy “Despicable Me 3” is a movie that probably didn’t need to be made. But don’t try telling to that to the filmmakers. They’re far to busy bathing in the billions this mega-popular franchise has brought them since the first one lit up theater screens back in 2010.

Oh, Steve Carell and Kristen Wiig are just fine as the two leads, with ample lines to have you laughing out loud while perpetuating the pair’s solid chemistry. But there’s just not a helluva lot of new ground being covered here. And curiously, neither the hilarious legion of those yellow yucksters, the Minions, nor the crazy cute trio of kids is featured with any degree of purposeful prominence.

And the third wheel who was shown the spotlight, for my money (and I did pay to see this flick) shouldn’t have been. Trey Parker. Stick to your gift of creating cartoons like the iconic “South Park” and not to lending voice to the characters in them. Valiant effort to be sure. But you just did not do it for me here, bro. In fact, you might say that you killed all the entertainment right out of your overwrought role much like you off poor Kenny practically each week on your satirically sardonic TV series.

  1. I think that “Despicable Me 3” is as good as Despicable Me 1 & 2. The whole story is well told. Good quality sound, good effects. I was thinking that after second part they won’t make another one, but they surprise me pretty good. And Gru has a brother?! They might be indentical twins but their personalities are quite opposite. In my opinion Steve Carell made an excellent performance with both characters Gru and Dru, which is not easy. As I said before it’s good that the directors made a third part. Well we all love the Minions, they are so adorably despicable.

  2. Going to any mediocre children movie can be disastrous, especially if the movie fails to grasp and hold the attention of the child viewers. I went to see this film with my six year old child, and we both were entrenched with laughter from beginning to end. Steve Carrell spews perfection as he verbally constructs his likeable-ex-villain character named “Gru.” Adult laughter and the alluring affect on every child’s interest in the movie theater, equates to a phenomenal movie for all ages. “Despicable Me 3” in my eyes, has been cemented as the most entertaining animated film of the year.
