Holiday Gift Guide 2010: Despicable Me On DVD & Blu-ray™ December 14th! (Prize Pack Giveaway)

A Little Bit About Despicable Me
Vying for the title of "World's Greatest Villain", Gru (voiced by Steve Carell) – along with his hilarious crew of mischievous minions – plots to pull off the craziest crime of the century: steal the moon! But when Gru enlists the help of three little girls, they see something in him nobody else has ever seen: the perfect dad. From executive producer Chris Meledandri (Dr. Seuss' Horton Hears a Who!, Ice Age, Ice Age: The Meltdown), and featuring the voices of an all-star comedic cast, including Jason Segel, Russell Brand, Miranda Cosgrove and Julie Andrews, Despicable Me is "rousingly funny, heartfelt and imaginative" (Pete Hammond, Boxoffice Magazine).

Available on DVD & Blu-ray™ December 14, 2010!
