Us Rating ***

In this smash family flick (it made nearly $150 million), evil blue genius Megamind (voice of Will Ferrell) grows bored after defeating superhero Metro Man (Brad Pitt). But then his plan to create a new enemy by injecting Metro Man's DNA into a loser cameraman (Jonah Hill) goes haywire. Superb 3-D graphics and silly running gags (Megamind routinely mispronounces words such as school) will keep kids amused, while sly pop-culture references will earn laughs from adults. (Paramount Pictures, $30)
