Despicable Me 2...

Last night I had the opportunity to go to an advance screening of Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment’s Despicable Me 2 (2013) which is the sequel to the 2010 film Despicable Me.
Since I was given a plus one I brought along my sister (Which disappointed Erin a little bit, thus causing her to tell my sister that they have to take turns going to future press screening with me if I am fortunate enough to get invited to any more) who was super psyched to go with me because she loved the original. So the two of us headed into New York City, had a quick dinner and headed over to the theater to see the movie in all of its 3D glory -- I really enjoyed the 3D on this one and I'm not typically a fan of movies done in 3D, like I normally avoid seeing anything in 3D but this one was great.
First I have to start out by saying that I absolutely enjoyed Despicable Me 2 and more so than the original (Which I had seen in the theater with Justin and his sisters when it came out back in 2010). The original was cute and all, but at the time that the movie came out I felt like the trailers gave too much away in terms of the funny scenes which bothered me. But I feel the complete opposite with Despicable Me 2. I really believe that Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment did a much better job not giving all of the humor away in the trailers with this one and I really appreciated that as a movie goer.

Speaking of the trailer..


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.

I really enjoyed Despicable Me 2 and so did my sister. It was cute, funny and everything that one would expect/want out of an animated 3D film. The only regret I have is the fact that I couldn't bring more people with me to see it because I feel like Justin's sisters and my friend's daughter would have absolutely loved it (You could tell that all of the kids that were in the theater couldn't get get enough of it). I guess I'm just going to have to tell them how great it was (They are going to be totally jealous) and make sure that someone takes them all to see it in the upcoming weeks.

Despicable Me 2 gets an A+ from me and I hope we get to see more in the furture of Gru, his adorable girls and the unpredictably hilarious Minions (Who are getting their own movie in 2014)!
Lemme know if you go see it when it comes out July 3rd and what you thought!
