Gru, the girls and the minions are back. Having retired from being a super villan to start a business making jam and jelly it seems that there will be no more danger or adventures for Gru and the girls. That is before they are needed to find and stop a villan plotting to take over the world.
Despicable Me 2 is a blast, from start to end there is humor and plenty of it. The minions are back speaking in gibberish with their short tempers, attention spans and retaliatory attitudes which ensure plenty of hilarious scenes. Often I found myself paying more attention to the minions and their antics in the background of scenes then the main story occuring in the foreground.
The story was very simple and I can't help but get the feeling that some parts of it were written as an excuse so that a joke could be made.
Overall the movie was pretty good, I had not laughed in a movie that much for a while.
