Supplements: What Goodies Are There?
The technical parts of Despicable Me's bonus slate aren't as much fun as the funny stuff - the screen-specific audio commentary with directors Chris Renaud and Pierre Coffin is pretty dry (thank goodness the Minions show up every once in a while), and the featurettes here (A Global Effort, Miss Hattie's Top Secret Cookie Recipes, Gru's Rocket Builder, Super Silly Fun Land, Despicable Beats, The World of Despicable Me and The Voices of Despicable Me) are surprisingly slight.
Far more rewarding is Gru-Control, an interactive feature that has the Minions pop up and switch things around as the movie plays. And the three mini-movies included - Orientation Day, Home Makeover and Banana - are a hoot.
A bunch of previews are also included.
It'll make for a fun rental - your kids will likely love it - but Despicable Me isn't the grandest animated film to hit screens this year. This Blu-ray's technical punch is excellent (A/V quality is stellar) and there are some goofy bonuses that will keep Minion-lovers occupied for a while, but as soon as another tentpole animated movie comes around, I bet Despicable Me might be pushed down the hill a little.
