Chrome-domed, needle-nosed Gru, former evil scientist now grumpy foster father to three little moppets has gone straight, using his formidable intellect and army of banana-headed Minions to manufacture a line of tasty jams and jellies. But when he’s recruited by the AVL (Anti-Villain League) to defend the Earth he reluctantly becomes a super spy aided by his overly neurotic AVL partner Lucy Wilde. It seems some mysterious arch-villain has stolen a cache of deadly serum which can transform people and animals (and Minions) into furry purple monsters and is now hiding out with his ill-gotten gains in a popular shopping mall. Could it be the diminutive Asian wig salesman? The boisterous Mexican restauranteur? The bungling teddy bear maker? It’s up to Gru and Lucy (and the MINIONS!) to uncover his identity and save the world before time runs out. Brilliant animation, candy-coloured graphics, and some very funny cartoon action make this sequel superior in every way to its nevertheless respectable predecessor—a “21 Fart Gun Salute” was pure juvenile comedy gold while a Village People parody was a camp delight for us aging boomers. And those little babbling, googly-eyed, hotdog-shaped Minions are one of the most endearing creations to ever pop out of a graphic artist’s head. Too bad they felt the need to tack on a love interest between Gru and the scatterbrained Lucy, in fact the entire film could have done without her shrill annoying antics. Perhaps in Despicable Me 3 she really WILL get thrown into a volcano…

This is a fantastic sequel. I absolutely love the original _Despicable Me_ and I wasn't sure if the second movie could live up to the first. Great voice actors (Kristen Wiig was a great addition in this movie), very funny, fast paced movie. Although the plot may not be as original as the first and although the three girls aren't in the story as much as the first movie, it's still a great movie. Now I know why it made $150 million at the box office during its first weekend in the theaters. Highly recommended for fans of _Despicable Me_.

Despicable Me Part II --- DVD --- Steve Carell. Annimation Awh. Its awesome! I don’t know what possessed me to check out this video. I got it on hold: when it arrived I almost let it go. But that nice librarian smiled her librarian smile and said it was really good. Always believe your librarian. And she was right. This installment has all; the virtues of its predecessor. The villain in the previous episode ha been thoroughly transformed into the warm, loveable daddy he always he the potential of becoming in the other version. This time, he’s teamed up with a love interest in the best tradition of some of those 60s and 70s spy thrillers. Those little irascible yellow sho stealing minions of his, however, in this episode are transformed into mindless, vicious and wicked monsters by a newly introduced villain. What’s not to like indeed. Enjoy.
