Movie Review: Despicable Me 2

 It's late and I'm tired, so today's blog is a movie review catch-up.

 The "Monsters University" outing went so well, we decided to take both kids to "Despicable Me 2." This one didn't hold the two-year-old's attention quite as well, but I sure enjoyed it!

 Gru is out of the supervillain life, and trying to adjust to family life with his three adopted girls, when he's recruited by the Anti-Villain League to track down the culprit responsible for the theft of a secret Arctic lab. In the process, he starts to fall for his recruiter and partner, Lucy Wilde (Kristen Wiig). Oh, and while he's busy investigating, his minions are being kidnapped and turned into vicious purple monsters.

 This one might not be quite as good as the original, but it's still worth the money. Gru's character continues to grow and change as he shepherds his oldest daughter through her first crush, while dealing with his own unexpected romantic interest. And of course, there's a lot more Minions. Everything about the Minions is great, they could probably carry a movie all by themselves. Steve Carell and Kristen Wiig are priceless as Gru and Lucy, this is one kids movie that is just as entertaining for adults.
