REVIEW: Despicable Me 4 - Starring Steve Carell

"Despicable Me 4" marks a delightful return for Gru and his Minions, delivering humor and heart in a way that continues to captivate audiences of all ages. The plot centers on Gru's high school reunion, where he encounters his old rival, Maxime Le Mal, now transformed into a cockroach hybrid with a sinister plan involving Gru's son, Gru Jr. The film excels with its top-notch animation, vibrant voice cast, and energetic pace, featuring standout performances by Steve Carell and Kristen Wiig. The addition of characters like Maxime, voiced by Will Ferrell, and Valentina, voiced by Sofia Vergara, adds fresh dynamics to the franchise.

Despite moments where the film feels more like a series of skits than a cohesive story, "Despicable Me 4" succeeds in its primary mission of making audiences laugh, especially its young target audience. The Megaminions' chaotic antics provide some of the funniest scenes, showcasing the series' strength in slapstick humor and visual gags. While adults might find the plot somewhat predictable, the film's charm, witty dialogue, and engaging action sequences ensure it remains a fun and entertaining family movie.
