My guaranteed laugh film -afternoon,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Despicable Me/Despicable Me 2 [DVD]  (DVD)
I love it. I'm totally biased in this review, I'll admit it. I just love these films.
I wasn't sure when I bought them and had heard mixed things about them - but I really really enjoyed them. I laughed out loud and giggled a lot.
There are the Ahhhwww cutsie moments (especially from Agnes) and the cute funny bits from the minions and the heart-tug of the theme of family and love. Mostly they are simply amusing and a great escapism for an afternoon or evening. These reliably cheer me up no matter how sad or meh or irritable I am feeling (even when I have PMS).
There are some fab bonus features (especially the one's involving the minions, of course!)
I was surprised that I liked the sequel as much as I did. I usually brace myself for any film with a 2 at the end of the title because so often they are inferior, if not downright naff.
But no, not this one. I stood corrected. It was a different sort of plot and theme in some ways - but it entertained and amused me just as much as the first film. I think I giggled as much.
