Description

Arch-criminal Gru (voice of Steve Carell) and his minions return in this Academy Award-nominated, computer-animated comedy sequel. Now living a life of domestic bliss in suburbia with adopted daughters Margo (Miranda Cosgrove), Agnes (Elsie Fisher) and Edith (Dana Gaier), Gru's world is turned upside down when he finds himself abducted by agent Lucy Wilde (Kristen Wiig) of the Anti-Villain League on the orders of boss Silas Ramsbottom (Steve Coogan). All is not what it seems, however, for with the world threatened by the new and dastardly super-villain known as Eduardo (Benjamin Bratt), it falls to the unique talents of Gru and his minions to step up to the plate and finally save the day. The film received Oscar nominations for Best Animated Feature and Best Original Song.

Synopsis
Once upon a time, Gru (voice of Steve Carrell) dreamt of stealing the moon - these days he's a single adoptive father of three precocious girls. Having given up his spectacular life of crime, Gru now aims to produce a delicious new line of jams with the help of his tiny minions and his old pal Dr. Nefario (voice of Russell Brand). Feeling unfulfilled in his newfound role as a jam-maker, Dr. Nefario announces that he will be departing for more evil pastures just as Gru is approached by the Anti-Villain League to capture the mysterious culprit who just stole a top-secret research lab filled with PX 41 -- an experimental serum with the strength to transform harmless animals into ravenous monsters. The AVL is certain that the culprit is covering his tracks by posing as a small business owner at a local mall, and assign their best agent Lucy (Kristen Wiig) to aid Gru in identifying him. Meanwhile, Gru's oldest adopted daughter Margo (voice of Miranda Cosgrove) falls for rebellious teen Antonio (voice of Moises Arias), the leather-jacketed son of boisterous Mexican cantina owner Eduardo (voice of Benjamin Bratt). Now, with Gru's paternal instincts kicking into full gear just as a dastardly plot begins to unfold, the devoted new father must divide his time between saving the world from an enigmatic super-villain, and saving Miranda from total heartbreak. All the while, a suitable mother for the girls may have been standing right under Gru's pointy nose the entire time.

Movie Critics
Empire
3 stars out of 5 -- "Gru still has charm and kids will adore the Minions."
Helen O'Hara (21 Jun 2013, )
Hollywood Reporter
"[There's] plenty to enjoy here courtesy of those zippy visuals and a pitch-perfect voice cast led by the innately animated Steve Carell."
Michael Rechtshaffen (15 Jun 2013, )
Los Angeles Times
"DESPICABLE ME 2 is light on its feet, visually inventive and very fast with the repartee."
Betsy Sharkey (3 Jul 2013, )
New York Times
"DESPICABLE ME 2 is consistently diverting and so cute you’ll want to pet it."
Stephen Holden (3 Jul 2013, )
Rolling Stone
3 stars out of 4 -- "It's still a first-class charm assault. Carell growls gleefully..."
Peter Travers (8 Jul 2013, )
Total Film
"The real stars of the DESPICABLE ME series are, of course, Gru’s sweetcorn-shaped minions....You’ll be reminded that good things come in small packages."
Total Film Staff (25 Jun 2013, )
Variety
"[The] DESPICABLE ME franchise fully embraces the loony design, zany humor and impossible physics pioneered by Hanna-Barbera, Friz Freleng and Chuck Jones..."
Peter Debruge (15 Jun 2013, )
Wall Street Journal
"[A] cheerful, perfectly enjoyable sequel....The film's greatest assets are the Minions, Gru's multitude of mischievous, fireplug-size assistants who scheme and swarm, squeal and babble in unfathomable tongues."
(4 Jul 2013, )
