The superhero plot is still there, kicking off with Gru (voiced by Steve Carrell) receiving a job offer from the Anti-Villian League, but as in its predecessor, the main theme of the film is love. A great family-friendly flick for the holidays, lots of laughs and likeable characters – the minions are a highlight.
Despicable Me 2 | Directed by Pierre Coffin, Chris Renaud (USA 2013) with Steve Carroll, Kristin Wiig, Benjamin Bratt. Starts July 4.
