There are some fundamental differences between these two films but they’re both about one simple thing: a villain becoming a good guy. Also, both of those villains have weirdly disproportionate bodies (Gru’s tiny legs in Despicable Me and Megamind’s well, mega big head!). The only big difference is how each villain turns themselves around and what their motivation is. Though both films made a good amount of money, it’s Despicable Me that has spawned an insane amount of sequels and spin-offs and given the world (for better or worst) the minions!
