Totally child friendly and, for me, a gut buster. The minions are hilarious, even when they are being transformed into mindless blue cousins of the creatures in Critters. I can truthfully attest that the adults in the audience were ROFLTAO. Nods to Lord of the Rings and Monsters Inc. are there, along with musical sendups. Think Village People for one. Gru is partnered with Agent Lucy of the Anti-Villain League, whose super cool secret agent tools easily matches Gru's, including a car that transforms into a mini-sub. 007, eat your heart out! Spend your money on the 3D version, the mini-movie at the end really pays off with the effects.

There were jokes for the kids, adults, teens, and the whole lot. My two youngest said this movie was "way better" than the first. Nice when a sequel to a successful movie seemingly surpasses the first. The 3-D was awesome, especially during the closing credits.

I liked the fact that they had more on the minions in this one. They are so interesting to watch and love the way they are shown in all their different roles in this movie. There's always a good story about Gru and the kids, this one is special. It's definitely a family movie, the kids will love it and the adults that see this movie are all grown up children at heart. There were groups of adults seeing this movie without kids at all and they were laughing..THe movie is getting a good following Go see it!!! Lorraine
