DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy Animated - This is a sequel to the popular animated comedy of 2011, but with the main character going from villain to hero at the end of the first film, this new one is even more gentle and family friendly, with little of the first film's more edgy humor though there are some mildly crude gags that earned the film a PG rating. Fans of the original will definitely enjoy, and this is a family film in the best sense with appeal to kids and adults.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good Despicable Me 2 provides a good bonding opportunity for parents and children with enough palatable elements to please members of both generations.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good While I remain disappointed that the sequel gives me a subdued Gru and an uneven pace, I keep remembering things about 'Despicable Me 2' that make me smile.

USA Today Full Review
Average The sequel isn't nearly as imaginative or delightful as the original.

Washington Post Full Review
Good Once again, they manage to tickle moviegoers big and small in the way only cat videos usually do, and they very nearly run off with the sequel, 'Despicable Me 2.' But the sweet story holds its own.

Based on a theater exit polling of 154 moviegoers:
Great Reviews from all ages both males and females! Almost everyone indicated that they LOVED "DESPICABLE ME." This is definitely a movie for the entire family!


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Now that the ever-entrepreneurial Gru (STEVE CARELL of The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Dr. Seuss' Horton Hears a Who!) has left behind a life of super crime to raise Margo (MIRANDA COSGROVE of television's iCarly), Edith (DANA GAIER of Bullied) and Agnes (ELSIE FISHER of television's Masha and the Bear), Gru, Dr. Nefario (RUSSELL BRAND of Get Him to the Greek, Hop) and the Minions have some free time on their hands.

But as he starts to adjust to his role as a suburban family man, an ultra-­secret organization dedicated to fighting evil around the globe comes knocking. Now, it's up to Gru and his new partner, Lucy Wilde (KRISTEN WIIG of Bridesmaids, TV's Saturday Night Live), to discover who is responsible for a spectacular crime and bring him to justice.
