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 »

So Despicable Me 2 is a very family funny/friendly animated comedy which at points really does make you laugh! If you are reading this now and haven't yet seen the trailer, I would recommend you don't watch the trailer and just go straight to the film, Some of the best parts are shown in the trailer. To watch this film you don't really need to have seen the first however I would recommend you do as at points the film refers to Despicable Me (1).
I'm going to keep this review short and simply say, I gave this film a 9* rating as I found it strongly entertaining, not as funny as I thought but still a great film! The story line was also very easy to follow and keeps you engaged throughout.
Would recommend this film to anyone! I would say most people will enjoy this film, find it entertaining and recommend it to there friends!
This film is perfect for any family to view!
