Despicable Me 2 Movie Review


Despicable Me 2 is a cute movie. Despicable Me 2 the movie is quite funny. Kids love to watch the film, Despicable Me 2. In Despicable Me 2 the movie, Gru is a dark character, a super villian, an enemy that decided to turn his life around and be nice!

Gru and his girls in Despicable Me 2 the movie

In Despicable Me 2 the movie, Gru has three little girls in his care. The oldest girl is named Margo. The youngest girl is named Agnes. When they address him, they call him Gru not Dad but he is very obviously a Dad like figure for them.

They all live in a uniquely black house with toys on the front lawn.

In the movie, all of the other houses on the block appear similar to one another and so very different from Gru's dark house.

A birthday party

Near the beginning of the movie, Gru hosts a birthday party for the youngest girl, Agnes, in the family's yard.

Gru dresses in a fairy costume for the occasion when the party entertainers that he was hoping for turned out to be unavailable.

Gru and the dating scene

Gru is lonely. Some people unsuccessfully try to set him up on dates. Bald headed Gru is even enticed to wear wigs to spruce up his look. His clothing choices always include black and gray clothing only.

Gru is exasperated by some of the dating prospects and thinks that he does not need to date. He could just focus on taking care of his girls.

Anti-villian (AV)

In the movie, an opportunity comes up for Gru to partner up with someone to solve an anti-villian (AV) case.

By the end of the solved case, Gru is in love with the woman that was his partner in solving the case. She is then scheduled to relocate to Australia for work. Mid-flight on her way to Australia, she begins to see Gru's face in everything:

  • a magazine that she is reading
  • the flight attendant's face
  • a baby's face, etc

She thanks the flight attendant for helping her to see that she loves Gru and she chooses Gru. She escapes the plane through the emergency exit and her purse turns into a paraglider to get her back to Gru's location.

Gru and his lady get together and after 147 dates, they get married at the end of the movie!

Before that happens, there is lots of adventure and another villian to deal with. This villian even turns many of Gru's beloved yellow minions into purple monsters! An antidote is needed to change them back to the yellow minions.
