If you liked the first Despicable Me, you'll like this one.
Despicable Me 2 is more polished than the original. The CGI is noticeably better and the visuals are more complex. The writers incorporated more parent pleasing humor after the popularity of the first movie with adults.
Steve Carell is amazing as Gru. Kristen Wiig provides the perfect comedic companion. The minions get plenty of crowd pleasing screen time.
I did find the movie to slowdown in two spots. This made the movie seem longer than its 1 hour 38 minute run time. All of the kids in the theater seemed entertained through out the entire run time.
While not as ground breaking as the original, Despicable Me 2 is a great summer movie for kids; however, Monster's University would get my nod if you had to chose between it and Despicable Me 2.
There are minion scenes during the credits and nothing after the credits
If you like my reviews, add me as a fan. I'll add you back!

Despicable Me was the last movie to took my late little brother to see. (He passed away before his 12th bday). I went to see Despicable Me 2 in honor of him. This was the first movie I've seen since his passing. It was great! Good belly laughs! I am going to be pre-buying it when it comes out for home! :)

Beedoh.... Beedoh... Beedoh.. The movie was so funny! The minnons were a hit with the audience ... young and old! I am going to have to see it again.... because I know there is something I might have missed. (I really just want to see it again!)
I would recommend this movie to everyone.

I brought my two 5 year old granddaughters to the movie and they stayed engaged throughout the entire film, even the granddaughter that has a hard time sitting down for long periods of time. The movie was funny with a good story line. Kristin Wiig's character was a nice addition and the minions played a bigger role in this one than the first.
We did not see it in 3D as the effects are too distracting for my little ones, but there were a lot of scenes at the very end that seemed to be made for especially for 3D viewers. Tip: Be sure to stay for the credits.
This was definitely a good choice for our summer movie.

I took my 5 year old Grand Daughter and she smiled and giggled throughout the entire movie, at the end she asked to see it again. I enjoyed it as well and found it to be very well mixed with humor for all ages to enjoy. The minions are the best!!
