LA Film Festival Closing: "Despicable Me"

The closing film to this year's Los Angeles Film Festival was the world premiere of "Despicable Me".  Popcorn and soda at hand, I'm sure others in the filled Nokia Theatre shared my opinion that this movie was a great closing event to this year's festival.

It's was the perfect family-friendly movie - laughs for both young and old, unbelievable moments, great animated moments in 3-D, and cute little minions that you wish could be yours.  While one could say that "Despicable Me" features villains in a desire to outdo the other, the movie is more so about family as Gru (voiced by Steve Carell) in his attempt to steal the moon, finds that an even bigger challenge is how much three orphaned girls have changed his life.
