Review:

They’re back!!! Gru (Steve Carrell), Lucy (Kristen Wiig), the girls and all the lovable minions are back!

Gru is settling into his new role at the Anti-Villain League, but struggling to complete his mission of capturing Billy Bratt (Trey Parker – South Park) - an ex child star of the ‘80s, who chose to make his TV series a reality by becoming a supervillain. His weapons of choice are none other than ‘80s paraphernalia. Beware his finishing move - DANCE FIGHT!!!

Continually foiled and made to look foolish and incompetent, Gru is fired. After this, and his minions walking out on him, he starts to question if there’s anything he’s good at… When he discovers out of the blue he has a long-lost twin, Gru thinks that meeting him should be a great way to lift his spirits. Unfortunately this isn't the case: Dru has a mansion, tons of cool gadgets, supercars by the dozen, and runs a highly profitable business. But is there more going on than meets the eye (aside from the golden, lustrous locks of hair)?

Though not quite on par with the previous Despicable Me films, this is still highly entertaining. The film has everything that you love – madcap hi-jinx, humour, impossible gadgetry and even a real, live unicorn for Agnes!!! With all the warmth and charm of the first two, this is well worth a watch!
