Moviefone Mama Says: In any other year, this movie would have been in the top tier of family films, but this year, after 'Toy Story 3,' 'How to Train Your Dragon' and 'Despicable Me,' it doesn't quite stack up as high. It is definitely entertaining enough for a whole-family trip to the theater, however, especially if your brood includes young superhero fans who can't get enough of caped heroes and villains. The voice cast is excellent (Pitt's not around much, but that's fine, since he's not exactly a comedian like the rest of the cast), especially Ferrell, Fey and Hill -- who's hilarious as a schlubby cameraman who's turned into a superhero slacker. Even as an animated, beefed up superhero, Hill apparently can escape typecasting. Ferrell and Fey lead the way, and the SNL alums are clearly gifted with their comedy timing. Don't expect it to rock your world, but it's fun and funny enough to please parents and kids yearning for a family movie outing.
