OUR REVIEW:

Despicable Me 2 is so funny! We loved it! The Minions are cute and even though they don't talk, you will be rolling with laughter watching them interact with each other. I liked the scene when Gru gets kidnapped and two of the Minions are trying to save him. One of them jumps on the trunk of the car and tried pulling the other one up but all he can grab is his overalls. The overalls stretch out and he ends up skiing then falls in a box and riding in the box for a few, all while his buddy is holding his overall straps. He's having a blast and had me laughing out loud. I also liked the chicken attacking Gru and Lucy when they break into El Macho's restaurant to see if he stole a secret laboratory. It was funny watching them fight the chicken. This is a good, clean and fun movie everyone will enjoy. This is for sure a must see!

There are some really good special features also! There are short movies with the Minions. We thought the puppy one was so cute. There are some features of the Minions and the Evil Minions and plenty more that are worth watching. A HUGE thumbs up from our family for Despicable Me 2!!
