Despicable Me 2, Minions

Movie Review: Despicable Me 2 (2013)

Despicable Me 2, Minions

As many of you know, it is a lifetime goal of mine to obtain both a lair and minions, so when I watch Despicable Me and its sequel, I am not merely absorbing a fine animated movie: I am living the dream.

Despicable Me 2 surpasses its predecessor and banks its laughs (and oh there are a-plenty) on the minions.  If you liked the minions in the first movie, you’re in for a treat.  The movie finds former super-villain Gru now a single father of three girls and those three girls are highly interested in obtaining a new mother.  They fixate on Anti-Villain League agent Lucy with whom Gru has been drafted to investigate evil doings-on at a seemingly normal suburban mall.

DM2’s plot may not be as strong as the first movie’s, but honestly I do not care.  I do not care because every time a minion was onscreen I was pretty much laughing harder than I have in a long, long time.  Things come together in the way you’d think, and the two movies together serve as a nice journey of this supervillain and his complete transformation.  It would be awesome if they’d just leave this alone and not make 9 more, but that’s not how films work.  The minions have their own spin-off already planned for next year, and I’m sure given the whopping opening weekend, we’ll hear about Despicable Me 3 soon.  Just don’t burn me out on the minions, guys, because I could watch the fire brigade of minions alone all day and never stop laughing.
