Despicable Me 2 (2013)
Game based on the movie.
Lucy refers to the minions as "Munchkins."
El Macho is said to have died by strapping himself to a bomb and riding it to his death, just like an iconic scene from this film.

Minions Dave and Stuart drive through The Paradise Shopping Mall like Jake and Elwood does to escape the police.

"Bake My Day" bakery
After two minions are abducted by a light beam, the same light beam opens and drops the cat, the same way Mr. Bean is dropped in the TV series intro.

Edith says Gru resembles Gollum.
Pollito fight with Gru is similar to Puss fight with Shrek - an innocent small creature turns out to be a threat, getting inside the clothes and bursting out the chest Alien style
