"I shrink the moon." "I grab the moon." "I sit on the toilet bowl...whaaaa?"

My 3 year old daughter says this constantly and every time I can't help but to crack up. It was hilarious when we saw it in the movie theater and it's hilarious a thousand times later. Despicable Me was absolutely the perfect choice for her first theater movie and it continues to be a total family fave. The naturally hilarious voices of people like Steve Carrell and Russell Brand fill Despicable Me and add to the funny and heart warming storyline. My kids were mesmerized at the movie theater, full of laughter during the movie and still ask me to pull up clips online.

Despicable Me has followed a long line of movies from   that have gone further than just the movie and really built an empire with the characters. Who could have known that the funny little Minions from Despicable Me would go down in character history and totally take the nation by storm?! Minion Madness has taken over and the crazy little guys have run the bell at the New York Stock Exchange, had a float in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and stolen the hearts of so many. In addition, the Minion Photo Madness iPhone app is now available for FREE in the iTunes store. You can join in even more fun, and possibly be a huge winner, by playing Minion Madness and gathering Minions for doing tons of fun stuff!

When criminal mastermind, Gru, adopts three little girls for his own selfish reasons, he ends up learning what family is and what's really important. Along the way, watching this tough bad guy interact with and be softened by these three little ones is absolutely hilarious. My personal favorite moment of the movie is when Gru is forced to read a kitten book to the girls at bedtime. My kids were howling with laughter throughout the movie, as were the other children in the theater. If you are looking for a gift that will surely please this holiday season, look no further than Despicable Me!

Despicable Me comes out on DVD and BluRay on December 14th. I'm certain that it's going to become a classic in our house and know that it will be the same for households all across America.
