When Minion confronts Megamind about dating Roxanne Ritchie, Megamind disables Minion's arm. When Megamind says maybe he doesn't want to be the bad guy anymore, Minion recoils with a gasp and lifts both arms in surprise which he shouldn't have been able to do with a disabled arm. Minion is then shown driving away on his Segway, and his arm is once again disabled. See more »

You'll probably laugh, and you'll probably wish it were better.
11 January 2011 | by doyler79See all my reviews

You'll probably laugh, and you'll probably wish it were better. Megamind is nothing more than a amiable-enough adventure about atonement, about choosing to be the person you want to be regardless of what others expect of you. I'd love it a lot more if the Pixarian themes had been developed with greater care; as it is, they come across as an reconsideration. The jokes range from the modestly amusing to the mildly dumb. It's a harmless, inoffensive, moderately likable throwaway of a cartoon that you will probably start forgetting as soon as it's over.It may be difficult to find uniqueness in Megamind but it's also hard not to like.
