Co-Directors Pierre Coffin and Chris Renaud have translated Co-Writers Ken Dario’s and Cinco Paul’s Despicable Me2 into a thoroughly enjoyable film for both children and adults, although I felt some of the best parts were even more appealing to adults. Think Soupy Sales and you’ll know what I mean.
Gru (voiced by Steve Carell) is recruited by The Anti-Villain League through the efforts of Lucy (voiced by Kristen Wiig) to help thwart a new master criminal.
This isa job he is reluctant to take on because it takes away from his time with his lovely adopted daughters Margo (Miranda Cosgrove), Edith (Dana Gaier) and Agnes (Elsie Fisher).
The plot is secondary, however, to the antics of adorable Minion characters (voiced by the Directors), who create multitudinous belly laughs. The hilarious final scene, alone, is worth the price of admission. Don’t miss it.
And, the extra cost for seeing it in 3D is worth it, especially for the end credits.
I give Despicable Me2 a 4+ out of 5.
