Director: Pierre Coffin, Chris Renaud
Starring: Steve Carell
Studio: Illumination Entertainment
Rated: PG (For rude humor and mild action)
Now that he is out of the villain business for good we find Gru is fully housetrained and giving his daughters a birthday party, kissing them tonight, and forbidding the oldest one to see boys. Because of his new role of being a father (and running a jelly and jam business) Gru is actually more likable this time around then he was in the first movie. You'd think three girls would have taken their toll on him, but thankfully the Minions keep the house working like a well-oiled machine. I enjoyed this aspect of the film so well that I was disappointed that the directors felt they needed to bring him back into the game at all. No, he doesn't go back to his evil ways, but he is asked to help find criminals.
Parents, despite the PG-rating there is nothing offensive in this film. Recommended for all ages.
