When Gru goes back to Macho's house to rescue Lucy, he goes in handcuffs with two minions painted purple. The scene is reminiscent of R2D2 and C3PO going to Jaba's palace because of the shot of the door opening, with large teeth on the bottom of the door to prevent it from being battered in. It is shot from the same angle and is thus a tribute to Return of the Jedi in that brief shot. See more »

It's not often that a hit animated film's sequel surpasses the original film. Despicable Me 2 is one of those rare cases. From the moment it appears on the screen to the end of the film, Despicable Me 2 is a fast paced, fun film that never ceases to be entertaining.
This film has you laughing quite often, contains humour that both kids and adults can appreciate, and had at least one moment that was worthy of clapping out loud to.
The character development is to be praised, as is the warmth and soul that Pierre Coffin and Chris Renaud put into this film.
This film leaves you feeling joyful and satisfied and happy for the characters and the new direction their lives are taking.
This film is not to be missed and I can't recommend it enough.
