            If you don’t already own Despicable Me 2, then what have you been doing with your life? That movie should have been in your shopping cart the day it came out on Blu-Ray and DVD. I mean seriously.

Despicable Me 2 revisits Gru and his little family—including those hilarious minions. Gru is recruited to help out the Anti-Villian League with an investigation. When clues lead Gru, voiced by the always-amazing Steve Carell, and Lucy, voiced by the equally incredible Kristen Wiig, to a presumed-dead supervillain by the name of El Macho, things go awry. Gru must risk everything to save his family and his minions.

This movie has everything: action, adventure, forbidden romance, and a sense of humor that the entire family will enjoy. As if the movie isn’t good enough, those minions just make everything exponentially funny. I mean, are you even human if you don’t like the minions? If you think this movie is just about villains and adventure, you’re wrong. There is a strong theme of family, which will tug at your heartstrings at the end of the film.

Honestly, why are you still reading this? Go buy this movie and watch it with your kids!

Oh and please, please, watch this video with your kids. You won’t be sorry…unless you don’t watch it.
