Despicable Me

Steve Carell gives good voice to this CGI toon about a scheming supervillain plotting to steal the moon. When a nerdy rival (Jason Segel) usurps some of his villainous thunder, our main bad dude adopts a trio of cute orphan girls as part of his evil plan. Of course, the twist in the tale is he turns out to be a fine father. The film is in danger of becoming terminally cute, but it's saved by some genuinely sweet characterization, plenty of funny jokes and a bunch of scene-stealing sidekicks who look like little yellow jelly beans. Part of "Illumination Week." (That's the company that made it.) 95 minutes PG. (Opens Friday 5/25)
