One summer movie we never got to watch was Despicable Me, the animated movie starring Steve Carell as the evil guy who recruits 3 orphan girls to do his dirty work, only to find that their innocence is changing him in a profound way. We were vacationing in England when the movie was showing in the US, so we have been waiting to see it on DVD.
It looks like the wait is over -- Despicable Me is coming to DVD and Blu-Ray on December 14! And to celebrate, those mischievous minions were at the New York Stock Exchange today to help ring in the opening bell. Then they're off to the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade where they'll be part of the Statue of Liberty float, then it's back to the NYSE on Friday, November 26 for the closing bell, as part of NYSE Kids Day.
And here's the best celebration of all: I've been given a Despicable Me Prize Pack to give away!
Win a Despicable Me Prize Pack
One lucky Bonggamom Finds winner will receive a Despicable Me prize pack consisting of:
