The much-loved Despicable Me returns to the big screen after three years of waiting. This time, genius criminal Gru (Steve Carrell) has quit being a villain, and comes back as a spy.

After adopting three orphaned girls, Margo (Miranda Cosgrove), Edith (Dana Gaier), and Agnes (Elsie Fisher), Gru has given up his despicable ambition, and is determined to become the perfect dad. He converts his secretive, weapon-filled basement into a factory that manufactures jam.

Just as Gru is getting used to his role as a suburban family man, his new-found life takes an unexpected turn. Lucy Wilde (Kristen Wiig) and Silas Ramsbottom (Steve Coogan), members of the Anti-Villain League, ask him to use his knowledge of how villains think and help them fight a new super bad villain who is on the loose.

After much hesitation, Gru agrees to take up the job, and the adventure begins.

The film follows a simple, straightforward plot, but is lit up by lots of hilarious moments and creative ideas. It is a genuinely heartwarming story about family relationships, friendships and loyalty. Every second of the sequel is as entertaining and enjoyable as the first one, if not more.

The eye-popping 3D effects, three adorable girls, and the loveable, yellow-faced minions are highlights, making Despicable Me 2 extremely fun to watch.
