  • Despicable Me 2

    Despicable Me 2 (2013)

    Rated PG, 98 min. Directed by Chris Renaud and Pierre Coffin.

    In Despicable Me's initial installment, former baddie/now daddy Gru (voiced by Steve Carell) exchanged a life of supervillainy for domesticity when three little orphans committed the most heinous crime of all – stealing his heart. In this animated 3-D sequel, the question is: Can Gru also open his heart to romantic love, while saving the world from a mysterious criminal who possesses a serum that transforms Jekylls into Hydes? You can guess how it all turns out. Like its predecessor, DM2 caters to the preadolescent crowd, ramping up the fart jokes and emphasizing the saccharine over the smart. That said, the gibberish and slapstick antics of Gru’s Minions, those little yellow capsules of chaos, appeal to all ages; they're hugely welcome in a film that’s otherwise unexceptional. Rumor is that the franchise's planned spin-off will feature only these unintelligible bundles of id. Now that’s a movie everyone can get excited about. Read a full review of Despicable Me 2.
