'Despicable' worth its 3-D surcharge
Gru, voiced by Steve Carell, is shown with two of his little yellow minions in a scene from “Despicable Me.” The 3-D film is about a villain who meets his match in three little girls.
“Despicable Me” shouldn’t work as well as it does. The story leaves open all sorts of logical holes, and it’s about a gruff and seemingly uncaring man who adopts three cute kids. Not exactly original stuff (“Up” covered a lot of that territory last year).
