Universal’s Despicable Me 2 is as funny and charming as the first movie.
Gru has become a nice guy and content to care for the girls, but throw in a possible love interest — Lucy, voiced by Kristen Wiig — and Gru’s life begins to change.
We get to see more of the Minions, which is great, because they provided most of the funny moments. I will tell you that the musical number they perform at the end of the movie is worth the price of admission. I heard plenty of laughter from both children and parents in the theater.
RunPee Mom is our emotional bedrock. Without her, RunPee never would have lasted a decade as an app (which is since the dawn of time in internet years). She’s our biggest cheerleader and an unending source of unconditional love. She works cheerfully and tirelessly, seeing any movie we ask of her, writing interesting reviews, and being our…well…MOM. Her genres of choice: kiddie flicks, animated movies, emotional dramas, historical features, war films, diverse biographies, and even dense, diabolically plotted thrillers. She knows more about famous and infamous figures in history than said figures probably knew about themselves. She’s the Quiz Manager for the RunPee.com blog, and our resident movie celebrity/trivia expert. If you’ve taken a RunPee Quiz, you’ve most likely been given a virtual hug by RunPee Mom.
