This movie would be nothing without the hilarious minions, they are are hands down the funniest part of this movie.
On a negative note, the use of guns and weapons throughout this movie is VERY disappointing, my 6 year old left the movie wanting to find and SHOOT bad-guys.
They really could have made this movie without glorifying weapons and guns to such a young age group.
The movie was hilarious, as expected, the theater was packed, however AGAIN, the use of guns and the MESSAGE given to the youngsters that you have to SHOOT the bad guys with something to overcome evil is a horrible message.

I bought the Dispicable Me DVD partially because it had a sticker on it proclaiming that I could get $7.50 off of a movie ticket on Fandango, and figured it would cut the cost a bit to go see the second movie. I registered the code from the sticker, and attempted to use it. Consistently, I got the good old, bold red, "You must activate/register this code first". I kept trying. It never worked, and I wound up paying full price. Never again. I'm disgusted, Fandango. The movie itself was ok. Funny. Cute. Heartwarming. Would have been a lot more satisfying if my coupon code had worked. I'll be warning my moviegoing/DVD purchasing friends to not bother with this ruse of yours. Thanks for nothing.

One of the funniest movies to come out in years. Better than the first one and new characters bring a lot more twists to the plot. Must see!!!

If you enjoyed DM and love the minions like my kids and I did, you will love this movie as my kids and I did. Walking out, I overheard other families saying they enjoyed DM2 even more than the first too. It is a laugh out loud movie for all ages.

I was wondering how they were going to make it interesting with Gru being a lovable character. But they totally did. I can see more sequels being possible. Without giving away too much of the plot, there is an opportunity there for more movies. While I hope they don't play it out to the point of exhaustion, I would definitely see another Despicable Me movie!
I haven't heard my 7-year-old laugh that much since she saw the original movie the first couple times.
This is a definite for the family!
