I have been anticipating the release of Despicable Me 2 long before I was able to get into the Despicablimp a few months ago and pose with the minions. I was able to attend a sneak preview screening last week and it did not disappoint. In Despicable Me 2 former super-villian, Gru, is now trying to lead an honest, crime-free life while taking care of his 3 adorable daughters. The girls are growing up and Gru has to deal with his eldest daughter getting her first crush on a boy. I know it is only a matter of time before I will be dealing with my girls’ first crushes so I can totally relate. Gru is the typical protective father to the girls and it is heartwarming seeing their interaction with him. They love each other and it shows.
Since leaving his life of crime, Gru starts a jam and jelly company with Dr. Nefario and the minions as his workers but he is recruited by the Anti-Villain League to help deal with a powerful new super criminal. This is where he meets his new partner, Secret Agent Lucy, and the two of them work together to find and defeat the new super criminal.
I really enjoyed seeing the soft, lovable side of Gru in Despicable Me 2. It was nice to see him and Lucy awkwardly fall in love. As always the minions and Gru’s daughters were all adorable. Agnes is my favorite for sure. She is just so cute! My whole family enjoyed the humor in the movie and my 7 year old giggled loudly throughout. It is a great movie to enjoy with your whole family. Our favorite part of the movie was the ending and the closing credits. Make sure to keep your 3D glasses on and stay to watch them. Your kids will love it, too!
Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment’s worldwide blockbuster Despicable Me entertained audiences around the globe in 2010, grossing more than $540 million and becoming the 10th-biggest animated motion picture in U.S. history. In summer 2013, get ready for more Minion madness in Despicable Me 2.
Chris Meledandri and his acclaimed filmmaking team create an all-new comedy adventure featuring the return of (former?) super-villain Gru (Steve Carell), his adorable girls, the unpredictably hilarious Minions…and a host of new and outrageously funny characters.
