Gru, his adorable girls, and the mischievous Minions are back with a cast of unforgettable new characters in the blockbuster sequel to the worldwide phenomenon.  Just as Gru has given up being super-bad to be a super-dad, the Anti-Villain League recruits him to track down a new criminal mastermind and save the world.   Partnered with secret agent Lucy Wilde, Gru, along with the wildly unpredictable Minions, must figure out how to keep his cover while also keeping up with his duties as a father.  Assemble the Minions for laugh-out-loud comedy in “one of the funniest, most enjoyable movies ever!” (MovieGuide®)

Emma, Ethan and I were delighted to see the “evil” Gru’s soft side in this movie. He has totally taken on the Daddy role and to see him dress up as a fairy for Ange’s birthday party, it was above and beyond cute and the kids were giggling as he pranced around the party. Unfortunately he is captured and forced back into villain thinking to help capture the newest criminal mastermind and hopefully save the world. Along the way, another soft side of Gru is shown as he starts to fall for the adorable Lucy Wilde, a secret agent that is helping him determine exactly who the evil mastermind is.

Let’s not forget the unbelievably funny, cute, adorable and silly minions! Who wouldn’t want their own, right?

Despicable Me 2 is a fabulous family movie great for a family movie day while avoiding this horrible winter weather. Before you sit down for the movie, don’t forget the snacks! Chex has simplified that for us as well.. check out the Minion Munch Chex Party mix!
