94. July 19, 2010 - Despicable Me (2010)

Though not as good or touching as Toy Story 3, this is still an amusing and solid animated summer movie. The voice cast is great - Steve Carrell, Jason Segel, Dame Julie Andrews, and Will Arnett standing out the most - and the character design of the three kids is adorable. There are great allusions to The Godfather, Apollo 13 and Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs to keep adults paying attention (ha - the Barbie head in the bed!) and a nice tongue-in-cheek jab at Lehmen Brothers. Fun for an hour and a half on a hot day.
My Netflix rating: 4 stars
