Consensus: Despicable Me 3 should keep fans of the franchise consistently entertained with another round of colorful animation and zany -- albeit somewhat scattershot -- humor.

Peter Travers
Rolling Stone

Steve Carell doubles your fun in Despicable Me 3 - voicing feuding twin bros. Carell is the life of the party and the main reason this animated blast of slapstick silliness packs appeal beyond the PG crowd.

"Despicable Me 3" has some laughs, but not enough to prop up what feels like a flagging franchise.

How much you enjoy Despicable Me 3 may depend on how much you like Gru's 'minions'--those capsule-shaped little guys in blue overalls that speak in their own gibberish language.

It's a perfectly reasonable option for a family movie outing and isn't so bad that adults will cringe.

There are a mix of many ideas, none fully realized, so what the heck? Just toss 'em all in there, see what sticks.

To me, this franchise seems tired. An overly complicated plot seems to waste time while we wait for the inevitable showdown between Gru and the supervillain, former child TV star, Bratt. But the characters are still solid.

By the midpoint, the movie, which is directed by three different people - franchise regular Pierre Coffin gets help from Éric Guillon and Kyle Balda - is dragging badly.

While the first movie was, as noted, at its core rather charming, for Despicable Me, the third time definitely isn't the charm.

Despicable Me 3 doesn't reinvent the franchise, but proves there's plenty of fun and wackiness left and more than enough creativity left for future installments.

It had taken me a while to finally view this third installment in the Despicable Me franchise because Minions more than gave me fatigue. I loved the original… More

Add new characters, stir, and voila! New movie. The villain being from the 80's gives the rationale for using music from those years, a little something… More

Just when you thought they couldn't milk this franchise any further, we get a trilogy, as if it was obligatory (I actually think it is). I have never… More

An amusing third instalment, but the hopes of any more dwindles as the movie goes on.

Kyle Balda and Pierre Coffin are seeing double with Despicable Me 3. Running a brief, yet seemingly appropriate, 90 minutes, Despicable Me 3 manages a steady… More

Despicable Me 3 is where I draw the line. No more, please. This was barely passable. It's a tired franchise that did well and we all enjoyed it to begin… More
