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.

This movie was so cute! If you saw the 1st one, you HAVE to go see this. Even for adults it is cute. Go see this movie!! You won't regret it!

I really enjoyed this move. Characters continued to develop and the new characters were fun. The minions continued to steal their scenes. My only warning would be that I don't think you'll get as much out of it if you didn't see the first.

The family loved it. Very fun. The kids were laughing out loud at many parts (me to a few times). The girls left the theater saying it was better than the original.
The 3D was very good. Remember to wait for the credits as some of those effects are the best.
