If you like to laugh and smile and get a little teary then I have a movie for you. Despicable Me (in theaters July 9, 2010) is an animated movie that will resonate with any parent or child. The story of what parenting does to your lifestyle and what happens as you are thrust into it…well that’s the heartwarming part of what you might think would be a children’s 3D movie.
Don’t get me wrong…it’s a super fun 3D (or 2D if you prefer) movie for kids who love….
and funny little girls who are so smart and sassy.
It’s so much more than that. Parents will LOVE it too.
And I got to meet some amazing talent who play the voices in the film…
As if I wasn’t in LOVE with Steve Carell and Julie Andrews *curtsy* before…
As if Jason Segel wasn’t hot enough in How I Met Your Mother…
As if Miranda Cosgrove isn’t the cutest little girl you want to squeeze and then feed a pizza or 5 to….
I got to find out from them what it’s like to be in a booth creating voices with only you and images to expand upon.
As for the movie itself, it’s a fabulous storyline, and the cast bring into play characters that are memorable and endearing. The 3D is not overdone so you aren’t feeling sick and like your eyes are going to poke out. Well, there is a roller coaster scene that had me gripping the chair and barreling my feet into the nice German foreign press gentleman in front of me.
“Es tut mir furchtbar leid”
We got photos taken with each of the cast members that we interviewed. Since it was a blogger group, meeting the bloggers was one of the best parts. Getting to see the talent was icing on the cake.
Who am I kidding. It was all about the stars. I touched the royal hand of the Queen of Genovia. I may never be the same.
Trying to get close to the talent in each photo was not easy. Especially when Ms. “I’m in orange and tall and in the back row so move on over” leaves treadmarks on the cameraman to get in the line. There was no stopping Loralee. She had her “A” game on and got prime locations in all the photos.
I love her, but boy.
I’m just jealous. Of course I can haz photoshop…
So go see the movie and tell me what you think!
