We took a break from a family vacation at the beach to catch a great movie! Despicable Me 2 (2013 PG) continues the story of reformed evil villain Gru (Steve Carell) and his small yellow Minions as he balances parenthood with spying. Is El Macho (Benjamin Bratt) an evil villain, or simply a man with a secret salsa recipe? Gru and fellow Anti-Villain League agent Lucy (Kristen Wiig) will soon find out! There were only two other families in the theater with us, and we were laughing so loud the entire time that we may have disrupted their viewing experience! Fun movie!
Here is my family’s review:
What did you like about the movie? The adults, some of who did not see the first Despicable Me (2010), said it was funny for all age levels, without going over the edge. The 1970’s references also were good. The teenagers liked that it stayed funny the whole movie without getting too scary for their little cousin, and they appreciated the carefully scripted clever lines. The youngest one thought the purple guys were funny, and liked it when the Minions imitated the sound of a fire engine.
How could the movie be better? “It couldn’t,” said my daughter. No one else had any suggestions, with one person saying, “I enjoyed all of it – no negatives for me.”
Who would enjoy this movie? “Anyone with a sense of humor.” “All ages.” “Families with kids as young as 6.” “Everyone.”
Thanks for helping with this review! You can see we all highly recommend this movie for everyone!
