Rated: PG

After Credits Scene: During Credits

Despicable Me was such a wonderful surprise when it was released in 2010.  I just fell in love with it and a lot of others did too, which of course was going to lead to a sequel.  There was a magic and sweetness to the movie.  I was worried about capturing that magic again.  Were they going to be able to keep up the surprises, fun, and quality of the first movie?  I think they did.

The addition of Kristen Wiig really stuck out as a good choice.  Adding her character and specific voice work really made the new character Lucy welcome and a great addition.  Plus adding a lot more of Margo, Agnes and Edith really made for a good balance between all the characters in the movie.  It has a lot of jokes, some very funny moments, and the story is great.  It has plenty of minion fun, and cool fun gadgets and a wonderful new villain.   It all made for another excellent movie that I think is as good or better than the original movie.

I think you can easily take everyone to go see this on 4th of July and everyone will love it.  I don’t know about the 3-D however.  Usually I would say for an animated movie 3-D is still the way to go, but for the most part it isn’t necessary.  They do a few 3-D tricks during the credits scene but that is about it, and I don’t think that is worth the extra bucks that a family will cost for 3-D.  So far this is my favorite movie of the year and I think you should go see it today!
