Clever Guy and I were given the opportunity to see a free sneak preview of Despicable Me 2. All opinions and photos used in this post are my own.
Despicable Me 2 just came out and we were SO excited to go see it. We’ve been waiting for a year now to see this movie as we loved the first one. I would say it was one of our 10 ten favs! So when we got a sneak peek last week we couldn’t wait to go. Not only did we get to see it before it came out but we were able to see it the day after Clever Guy’s bday!
No spoilers I promise but here is the plot:
Gru is now a family man who lets go of his evil ways and joins up with the good guys to find who has stolen an entire secret laboratory which contained a compound that would turn any living thing into a destructive machine. His villain seeking adventures with his partner Lucy (who is played by the talented Kristin Wiig) were funny yet adventurous. In this sequel you definitely see a lot more of my favorite characters, those cute little minions in fact, there are even some purple ones! We loved that the minions were starts of this episode (we even learned more of their names) as they always make us laugh. In fact in this one there is more singing, more dressing up and lots more mischief.
Tip: Be sure you stay through the credits, Clever Guy just laughed and laughed at those funny minions.
Clever Parent Review: We definitely loved the movie and I would say it’s great for ages 5 and up. There is nothing scary or violent (unless you count those crazy purple minions but they end up being harmless).
Clever Guy Review: Definitely better than the first!
