This is the second time we find a Kristen Wiig character in a cupcake bakery. In this film, she has a scene with Gru in "Bake My Day". In Bridesmaids (2011) she used to own "Cake Baby"* bakery where she made cupcakes. See more »

Don't worry about me, Gru! I'll be fine. I have survived lots worse than this... Okay, that's not entirely true
[switches from calmly to frantically]
I'm actually kind of freaking out up here!
[attempting to free her]
Don't worry. I will get you out of this.

[grumbling; about Pollito]
I really hate that chicken.

I was really looking forward to this film, but to be honest, it wasn't all that amusing. It made me smile a couple of times, but no real chuckles. The story was a little messy. Gru wasn't as convincing. Neither were his interactions with some of the new characters. Pure good doesn't suit him very well. The minions weren't as funny - in fact, they were a little annoying - and the villain's master plan was rubbish.
The graphics were okay, but visibly low budget (compared to Pixar's Brave, for instance). It was as disappointing as one must expect from a sequel.
If you don't have anything better to do and just want to be mildly entertained for 98 minutes, go for it. Otherwise, just re-watch the original Despicable Me, it was a lot better.
