Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The kiddie set can chortle at Megamind's slapstick and its goofy one-upmanship while adults get a kick out of all the smart spatial tricks that highlight the 3-D effects.
Fresh: The fast-paced wisecracks and ironic asides that are the studio's hallmark help to push the film past the lumpy, generic storytelling.
Fresh: I do love Ferrell, whose absurdist man-child routine has always been a matter of taste.
Rotten: Every potential for real emotion is squandered. It feels like a superhero film made by people who don't believe in or care about superheroes.
Funniest Movie Ever
When I first heard of Megamind, I was not sure what to think. Yes, it had a decent cast, but I was never really a fan of Will Ferrell or Tina Fey. Sorry, but I never was. But the previews did look entertaining, and it is a DreamWorks movie, so I thought I'd give it a shot. Turned out to be one of the best times of my life seeing this great movie. I laughed from start to finish. Everyone was so perfectly overboard in their roles, and you could tell the cast had a ball doing this movie. It was fun from start to finish, and that's what any great movie is--fun!
You know.... stop using the word cute, and family fun.... to describe movies like these. It makes it sound like an enjoyable kids movie, that adults will actually like to watch with their kids - or could at least sit through and be entertained. You don't need a kid in the seat next to you for an excuse to watch this movie or any of the similar animated movies like it "Despicable Me", "How to Train Your Dragon", "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs", "Kung Fu Panda".
This movie is awesome. I'm 23 and this movie plus the others mentioned are far more entertaining that the other failed attempts of hollywood. Oh, its rated PG, must be kids/family movie. DUMB!
This movie is funny, there are parts that come across as boring, but, I found them quite entertaining. Sure, the premise is similar to Despicable Me, but, they are in no way the same movie.
You should watch this movie! And you don't have to wait to watch it when you get your family and kids together, or when you are babysitting, or something like that. Its perfectly fine to watch it with a group of grown people. Its that good.
Super cute movie!
At first, I thought this movie was going to be a really cheesy and unhumorous movie (at least to my tastes). But, when I went to see it with my friends, I was completely smacked in the face because this is one of the best movies I have ever seen! The humor is hilarious and fresh to all ages. The graphics are breath-taking. The over all storyline is a fantastic turn from a traditional, old-school superhero film and it had me guessing until the end with those unpredictable plot twists out of no where. I highly reccommend this to anyone in search of a good family/action/comedy!
