According to merriam webster, Despicable means: deserving to be despised : so worthless or obnoxious as to rouse moral indignation. 
I was only familiar with the word before because daffy duck loves to say that word every time. Anyway, just to give a brief information about the movie, it's about a person named Gru, who wants to be hated by the whole world and stealing the moon is his main objective to achieve that status. He needed the help of three children who has instead turned his whole world around. 

When this movie came out in the US it knocked out Eclipse from the #1 spot. One thing I've noticed though is that it's not that popular in other countries. On a personal point, the first time I saw the movie, I have to admit I wasn't attracted to the trailer, until one time, when I heard my daughter laughed at one of the scenes in the trailer (the part when the little girl said "does this count as an annoying sound?") I got curious then we went ahead and watched the movie on my day off.  The movie was hilarious and a delight to watch! I almost couldn't stop laughing. Both children and adults would enjoy it. At the same time, the story is heartfelt and touching. 

 
 

This is one of the funniest and most romantic movie I've ever seen.  Simple but funny! The story is somehow predictable at some point but it has never failed to make me smile all through out the movie. I had a lot of laughs during the first half of the movie the second half has a serious tone but has deeply touched my heart.
You will also notice that the name of the main actress in the movie was never mentioned at any time within the movie. They just focused on the girl being "sassy." The actress played the role well enough to say that the character indeed a cheerful but sad girl. Her eyes has expressed it truthfully.
