Rating PG for action and mild language.
Reminsicent of early Superman, Megamind is sent hurtling through space by his parents to escape the destruction of his planet. Only in this twist, Metroman is also sent away by his parents and ends up landing in the lap of luxury on Earth. Metroman is everything that Megamind is not and so Megamind gives up trying to be good and turns his rather large brain towards evil instead. Although, one can't help but feel right from the get go that Megamind is not really evil at heart.
Sex and Nudity: Roxanne and Megamind (disguised as a different man) kiss.
Violence & Gore Comical violence; lots of fighting between Megamind and Superhero.
Profanity: 2 uses of freaking, 2 religious exclamations, Highway to Hell (song) played in background.
Our children did enjoy watching this film but like I said, I thought it was just okay. While the movie was upbeat and well animated, the following day I had two sick kids at home and neither of them wanted to watch it again. Hmm.
So what have you seen lately?
