So, when I had the amazing opportunity to see Despicable Me 2, it was with great excitement and a little trepidation. Excitement because I was very much looking forward to more minions, and trepidation because not all sequels are as good as the first.
Well, in my humble opinion, Despicable Me 2 is better than the first. I think I laughed the whole time... I mean belly-jiggling, tears streaming guffaws! It is really funny!
All my favorite characters were back in full force, plus some new ones that I love! Gru the (Former?) super villain is hilarious as ever and actually has a partner this time. I loved the sub-plot of Gru struggling with his oldest daughter's first crush (yes, the freeze gun comes into play! I'd like one of those myself, what a weapon against raging teenage hormones!)
I felt like the minions stole the show in Despicable Me 2. The have a much more integral part of the plot. Their laugh is contagious and I still giggle every time someone says Mr. Ramsbottom.
I loved the whole movie but the ending scene had me crying I was laughing so hard! The younger set liked it but those of us who are a bit older found it hilarious! I won't spoil it for you, but I'm sure you'll love it too!
I'm definitely going to see it again, and own it when it comes out on Gru-Ray!
