How often does the entire family get to gather together to enjoy a feel-good, silly, fun-to-watch movie? Although there have been a plethora of great cartoons of late (Brave, Madagascar, etc.), Despicable Me 2 does a fine job with lots of buffoonery, first boyfriend "like" experience with the eldest daughter, saving the world from evil scientists, tender father/daughter moments, and most importantly, laughs galore with the Minions! Children and adults will delight in these creatures whose antics will turn this sequel from "meh," to "well worth the rental fee!" Yes, the plot devices are a tad hackneyed, but who cares when everyone is eating popcorn and laughing!
