DVD: Megamind, For retail & rental (Dreamworks)

A supervillain (voiced by Will Ferrell) defeats his Superman-like arch-enemy (Brad Pitt), only to find that his diabolical schemes are no fun if there isn't anyone around to foil them.

Cue the industry-standard number of positive messages, dazzling action sequences, and pop-culture pastiches. All that's missing is anything sufficiently amusing, heartfelt or surprising to make Megamind stand out from the cartoon crowd.
