This film is a scattershot attempt at animated comedy that never clicks. Russian super-villain Gru (voiced by Steve Carell) has a soft spot for playing daddy to three little girls if he can send them out on clandestine missions to bring down his arch-rival Vector (Jason Segel). The film’s feeble 3-D effects only add insult to the injury of its inflated ticket price. Where are Wallace & Gromit when you need ’em?
