Despicable Me 2 Out Today!


My family was so excited to be able to see Despicable Me 2!! We got tickets to see it early in 3D. What a great summer movie and perfect for the whole family!



Gru and his minions are back in action. The girls are trying to set Gru up on a date but dating doesn’t go so well. In the mean time, Gru is recruited to stop an evil villain. Could it be someone from his past? And what about the pretty agent he is assigned to?

Without giving too much away, my daughter loves the party at the end of the movie. I liked when the minions turned into fuzzy purple monsters and when the minions were singing. There was only one small scary part when the villain turns into a purple monster. But it did not last long.

Seriously, this is the movie to see this summer! Laugh out loud and great for young and old!



Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment’s worldwide blockbuster Despicable Me entertained audiences around the globe in 2010, grossing more than $540 million and becoming the 10th-biggest animated motion picture in U.S. history. In summer 2013, get ready for more Minion madness in Despicable Me 2.

Chris Meledandri and his acclaimed filmmaking team create an all-new comedy adventure featuring the return of (former?) super-villain Gru (Steve Carell), his adorable girls, the unpredictably hilarious Minions…and a host of new and outrageously funny characters.

We received tickets to see the movie early. All opinions are my own.


I'm a mother of 2 who likes to get involved in too much! Besides writing here I started a non-profit, I'm on the PTO board, very active in my community and volunteer in the school. I enjoy music, reading, cooking, traveling and spending time with my family. We just adopted our 3rd cat and love them all!
