In this hilarious twist on the superhero movie, super villain Megamind’s (Will Ferrell) dreams have come true when he conquers the city’s protector, Metro Man (Brad Pitt), gaining control of Metro City. But when a new villain (Jonah Hill) is created and chaos runs rampant, the world’s biggest “mind” and his comic sidekick might actually save the day.

Critics Consensus: It regurgitates plot points from earlier animated efforts, and isn't quite as funny as it should be, but a top-shelf voice cast and strong visuals help make Megamind a pleasant, if unspectacular, diversion.

The story's the thing. And this one is as subtly deep as it is ridiculously fun.

Clever animated superhero story is fun, not too scary.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this animated comedy flips the typical superhero formula on its head by focusing on supervillain Megamind (voiced by Will Ferrell), who doesn't quite know what to do with himself after the fall of his arch-rival supehero (Brad Pitt). Overall, the movie is age-appropriate for young grade-schoolers and up. There's one scene in which a character's supposed skeleton is shown and his death alleged, but other than that, the violence is all quite cartoonish and not particularly realistic or scary, and the 3-D isn't as intense as it is in some other animated movies. The language is also quite tame ("butt" and that sort of thing), but there's some romantic tension, and a couple holds hands, flirts, and eventually kisses. Most little kids won't understand the movie's general theme that good can't exist without evil and vice versa, but it's a fascinating concept to introduce to older children. Special note: Parents of younger kids should know that characters in the movie state that the Tooth Fairy and the Easter Bunny don't exist.
