Gotta love Gru’s Minions, those goggle-eyed scene-stealers from Despicable Me, and the little yellow critters were back in the thousands, performing musical numbers no less in the gut-busting sequel Despicable Me 2. Those guys are so popular they’re getting their own spin-off film, and were even a trendy Halloween costume this year. Also returning for Despicable Me 2 were the same writers, directors, and French animation house responsible for the original, who stuck closely to its winning formula, even recycling some of its jokes such as the fart gun, Nefario’s comically slow scooter, and the twisted interaction between Gru and his three adopted girls. There was nothing particularly inventive in the new film’s plot but it had enough twists and turns to keep things interesting and was so relentlessly hilarious that it made for a great time if you were dragged to it by your kids. »
