Storyline

While Gru, the ex-supervillain is adjusting to family life and an attempted honest living in the jam business, a secret Arctic laboratory is stolen. The Anti-Villain League decides it needs an insider's help and recruits Gru in the investigation. Together with the eccentric AVL agent, Lucy Wilde, Gru concludes that his prime suspect is the presumed dead supervillain, El Macho, whose his teenage son is also making the moves on his eldest daughter, Margo. Seemingly blinded by his overprotectiveness of his children and his growing mutual attraction to Lucy, Gru seems on the wrong track even as his minions are being quietly kidnapped en masse for some malevolent purpose. Written by Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)

Trivia

The visuals for Silas Ramsbottom are based on the Irish actor who was in Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy - Ciaran Hinds. See more »

Goofs

When Gru pops out of Lucy's trunk at the AVL he has a starfish on his head, this would imply 1) that there was a large enough gap in the trunk for the starfish to get in and therefore Gru to escape and 2) that water was getting into the trunk, and Gru would have drowned in the time it took to get to the AVL.

Quotes

Lucy: [Tied to a rocket] Oh, hey, Gru! Turns out you were right about the whole El Macho thing, huh?
[mildly]
Lucy: Yay.

When the world needed a hero, they called a villain.
23 June 2013 | by slwild-616-635800See all my reviews

I went to the cinema preview with my friend for this movie, and its even better than the first film! I only saw the first film recently, and I really liked it. I wasn't sure I wanted to go and see the film at first, but my mate wanted me to go and see the preview yesterday with him, and reluctantly, I said yes. Usually, the second films aren't better than the first, but boy was I wrong! I was laughing through out the whole film, and so was everyone in the audience, it was full to! Steve Carrell's character, Gru, was hilarious. I think everyone could agree though, the minions were the best characters in the film. My friend told me the directors made up a little language and did the voices, and I was very impressed, for you could hear a hint of English in every word they said.

So, if you have seen the first film and liked it, don't hesitate to go and see it when it officially come out on the 28th June. And if you haven't seen the first film, why not?
