Despicable (A)Me(ricans?)

Now don’t get me wrong, I think poorly of my fellow Americans, particularly those who enjoy the ‘dulcent” refrains of Sweet Home Alabama, but in the case of this trailer, I don’t quite get it. America’s idiocy makes it known to the world a great threat, prompting them to guard their landmarks and apparently we’ve got a giant beer landmark which I was uninformed of — I mean, there’s a monument I’d go see!

Needless to say they blatantly rip off Alfred Hitchcock though I doubt le dumb Americans could even guess at who that might be. Steve Carrell, who people seem to think can redeem any role, is something called “Gru.” The only thing holding this thing up for me is the addition of Russel Brand and a pretty funky theme song.
