There is absolutely nothing despicable about these movies! In fact, the word has become synonymous to cuteness after this movie series! Apart from the super-cute and funny characters, what makes this movie series all the more memorable are its uber-awesome quotes. This Entertainism article gives you a list of the cute and funny quotes from the Despicable Me movie series.
BEE DO BEE DO BEE DO!
The gibberish language that the minions speak in the movie was specially created by the directors of the movie series. The language was named “minionese” or “minioneise”, and was derived from different languages such as Spanish, Korean, and Japanese. The minions called ice cream, ‘gelato’, which is the Italian word for the dessert.
What could possibly be despicable about this two-part movie series? Absolutely nothing! In fact, it cutely and hilariously tells us all that even villains can turn out to be heroes and love can transform even the most heartless human. No, this movie is not mushy or cheesy, or the kind where a spiritual realization happens and the bad guy becomes a saint! It is about a villain Mr. Gru who has no intentions of being kind, but prove to the world that he is the most villainous villain in the world. His fate, however, has different plans for him!
Mr. Gru has an army of minions who are more like his workers. He is accompanied by a crazy scientist, Dr. Nefario who makes the evil gadgets to help him execute his evil plans when it comes to stealing the great wonders of the world. The otherwise rude, indifferent, arrogant, and potential malicious Mr. Gru becomes a loving and caring father when he adopts three orphan girls as a part of his plan to steal the moon. The girls not only change Mr. Gru, but also the minions who were created for evil-doings otherwise, and the highly aggressive and monstrous dog (of unidentified breed) named Kyle. The following sections will take you through some cute quotes that will lighten up your mood, and take you back to the fun and laughter you experienced while watching the two parts of the movie series.
