Despicable Me 2 opens in theatres today, Here's my quickie review...
My sister is a HUGE fan of the first movie, so I had her join me for this one.
We both LOVED IT!!!
I never actually saw the first one, and at no point was I confused about anything. This movie set up the story and characters perfectly.
I liked how Gru (Steve Carrell) was trying to juggle daily life with his daughters, while trying to maintain a fulltime job. As a dad, he's faced with issues like a boy interested in his daughter, a princess not showing up to a birthday party, and even getting back into the dating scene.
There are a few scary parts, but they're usually followed up by a joke. The kids in the theatre I was in had a blast.
Go see it. It's a great family movie. The minions are funny and the story of family and hope is incredible.
