2011 Guide Analysis: "Illumination Entertainment's second feature is hoping to emulate the success of their first film - this year's "Despicable Me". From a relatively modest $69 million budget, 'Despicable' scored not just strong reviews but around $540 million at the box-office worldwide which made it one of the year's biggest international hits. Unlike that film however, this is a live action film with a CG character, which explains the involvement of "Alvin and the Chipmunks" director Tim Hill.

A specially made teaser trailer had a CG bunny playing drums to the tune of Blur's "Song 2", it was cute but gave no insight into the quality of the film at all. Russell Brand has done his usual arrogant quips in the press, cracking jokes about how he rather than Jesus will now own Easter. Ugh, I'm an atheist and I still want to punch his face in. 'Despicable' and "Horton Hears A Who" scribes Cinco Paul and Ken Daurio penned the script so there's some hope here."
