I took the kids to see Despicable Me 2 when it came out in the theaters over the summer. While they thought it was funny, they were less amused by the theme of the evil Gru “falling in love”. We have since watched the DVD a few times…who can resist those mischievous minions!
In this follow-up to the 2010 worldwide blockbuster, Steve Carell returns to play Gru, the newly reformed master criminal now trying to live life as a normal dad to his three adopted daughters.
