Synopsis: Read on IMDB
Should you watch this movie? Yes. It is sweet, it’s hilarious, and very entertainment.
Gru has left his villanous ways behind and is now a devoted father to his girls Margo, Edith, and Agnes. When a super secret lab in the Artic is stolen, the Anti-Villain League (AVL) recruits Gru to help catch the perp who stole the lab and the super secret chemical developed there. He is paired with corky AVL agent Lucy Wilde and in their work together Gru concludes the culprit may very well be Eduardo, a local restaurant owner he believes is a cover for the villain El Macho.
It is a rare ocurrence when sequels are better or at the very least equally as good as their predecessors. This movie is one of those rare examples. The movie provides a successful plot continuation, great animation, and massive LOLs to make it stand up to the first installment. And they added a couple of new components, the best of them all can be described in two words: Kristen Wiig. But allow me to elaborate:
Most of the main cast from the previous movie reprise their roles in this one: Steve Carrell as Gru, Miranda Cosgrove as Margo and the other little actresses playing Edith and Agnes, Russel Brand as Dr. Nefario, and the same voices for the Minions. There is also a voice from the previous film, but in a different character, Kristen Wiig as Lucy Wilde. The animated character looks nothing like Wiig, but the mannerisms are just like watching her doing an SNL skit. Just hilarious and definitely added massive value to the film, not to mention a touch of romance to Gru’s character!
Other voices include Benjamin Bratt as Eduardo / El Macho, Steeve Coogan as Silas, and Ken Jeong as Floyd (he was also in the first movie, voicing a different character). All the characters play well together and deliver incredibly funny lines, especially Gru who is equally funny as a good guy. The entire film is charming and good wholesome family entertainment. It may not be the best animated movie ever made, but it’s the best one out there right now!
