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!

My two daughters, ages 10 & 12, appeared to enjoy the film, but was not great. To me, their were times the film moved very slowly. The premiss was weak at best & was very predictable. I did expect more from the 2nd installment of this super cute film.

Love it, minions are so cute! It is definitely for kids and adults! Laughed 80% of the time! Tip - stay after it displayed the crew's name list, show the respect and you get the bonus!

Agnes and the minions steal the show in this sequel. It needs to be seen in 3D and stay for the credits. A fun time for the family.
