What this raucous 3D animated fun house lacks in originality (think bastard child of The Incredibles and Despicable Me) it makes up for in visual and vocal wit. Will Ferrell has a ball being a dick with sharp diction as Megamind, a blue-skinned visitor from another planet who comes to Earth as a force for evil. Metro Man, voiced by Brad Pitt, is his heroic counterpart. But our sympathies are with Megamind and his assistant, Minion (scene-stealer David Cross), a robot with a fish bowl for a head. You actually root for Megamind to get the girl TV reporter (Tina Fey) and go whup-ass on her stalker cameraman (Jonah Hill) when he gets ill-gained superpowers. Director Tom McGrath keeps the action spinning and trips lightly over the bummer spectacle of watching a bad boy go good.
