Despicable Me (2010): excellent summer film full of visual invention; superb comic timing; complicated art historical in-jokes (one of the bad guys is modelled on a Daumier sculpture) and occasional jaw-dropping set pieces (two rocket launches; a wild ride on a fish-themed roller coaster by the sea). Plus a pulsing disco-funk soundtrack by Pharrell Williams. Rose T. Cat sat entranced with us in the front row at the local megaplex; that she attracted no undue attention says a lot about the expanded demographic the film draws.

(Plus: minions!)
