The funny friends dressed in overalls bee bopped back into a hit. Gru's daddy instincts kick in to bring tender moments of Freeze Rays zapping bad men and tucking in his 3 little unicorns. Love is in the air and it brings an age old tale of love into Gru's life. Boy meets girl and girl meets boy, but will it all go up in flames when the mystery heats up?

Took our 16 month old and expected to stay for 15-20 minutes because of her age, but she loves despicable me so much that we wanted to take her. Ended up staying for the whole movie because she watched it so happily and didn't make a peep except for when she was laughing! Whole family laughed at all the great lines and minion madness. Kristen Wiig is awesome. If you enjoyed Despicable Me for all it's comedy & heart, DM2 will not disappoint! We thoroughly enjoyed it - bring on DM3!!!

I loved the first Despicable Me. It's Pixar-meets-Looney-Tunes vibe managed to win me over. Most importantly, however, it was genuinely funny, thanks to the wildly inventive escapades of Gru and the minions. Unfortunately, this sequel retains little of what made the first an instant classic. Gru is no longer a bad guy here, and thus isn't as interesting to me as a character. His arc in the first film felt complete, and allowed for a great many laughs. Which leads to my main problem with this film: It really isn't that funny. The original got it right by deriving its humor from the plot. Here, the story is confused and generally all over the place. I felt as if they were trying too hard to fit in as many concepts and ideas as they could, resulting in more misses than hits. There was also an over-saturation of minions this time around. These guys work best when they're used sparingly, and centering the entire plot around them didn't work. Overall, I was disappointed.

Despicable Me 2 was awesome. Normally my boys get restless in the movie theatre but they were thoroughly entertained the whole time. The minions were a hit! All I hear around the house now are minion sayings. Agnes stole the show for me. I was on the verge of tears at one point. Her character is so sweet and loving. The music and picture quality were excellent, as expected. I'm definitely buying this movie when it comes out on DVD.

What a wonderfully funny movie! We took our grandchildren and enjoyed it as much as they did. I cried at the end of Despicable Me and Despicable Me 2. Great movies
