#20 Movie Review: Despicable Me 2 ❤

Was happy to know that the screening would be held at Sunway Pyramid because it took only 2 minutes to reach there from my house. I thought that I would not have to go early to queue up for tickets. But boy was I wrong, the car park was filled with cars that it took me 20 minutes to get a parking space. *I hate Sunway Pyramid's car park*

Thank god I managed to get a row F (not too bad). And happy to know that my bestie joined me for movie. We watched Monsters University together last week and this week she joined me for Despicable Me 2 movie since she loves minions too. *oops* Anyway, thank you Nuffnang for the tickets and TGV Cinema for the 3D glasses. Now I have two 3D glasses at home. :P Can mummy and daddy get me a 3D tv for me? Lol. :P



Synopsis
Gru is now no longer a villain after having saved his three adopted daughters Margo, Edith, and Agnes from rival super-villain Vector in the first film Despicable Me. He and two of his minions are approached and kidnapped by Lucy Wilde, an Anti-Villain League agent, and taken to the underwater Anti-Villain League Headquarters, where they ask for Gru to become a "spy" in order to track down a new super-villain who has stolen a research laboratory and a chemical compound that can transform lifeforms into invincible mutant killing machines.

Gru refuses, saying that he has new responsibilities now. Before he leaves, Lucy admits she was impressed by his work as a villain, stating that stealing the Moon was "amazing", before giving him her phone number and urging him to contact her if his mind changes. Upon his return, Dr. Nefario confesses to Gru that he misses being "evil" and has been offered employment elsewhere. Nefario then leaves Gru and his minions. This prompts Gru to contact Lucy and take the job. He works undercover in a mall as a runner of a cupcake shop, as the chemical has been tracked to the mall. Lucy has also been assigned as Gru's partner. He suspects one of the owners of a restaurant, named Eduardo, in the mall to be an old super-villain he knew several years previously, called El Macho, who supposedly died after an accident involving an active volcano. Lucy and Gru then decide to break into his restaurant and narrowly escape being caught, but find nothing to attach Eduardo to the crime.
When he arrives at the mall the next day, he sees the Anti-Villain League arrest the owner of a different store and tell Gru that the case is now closed and that Lucy will be getting posted in Australia for different work. Gru is not able to muster the courage to tell Lucy how he feels. The family then goes to Eduardo's party. Gru follows Eduardo and discovers that he was correct in assuming he is the man behind El Macho. Gru also discovers that Dr. Nefario has also been working for Eduardo and that the duo have been capturing and mutating some of Gru's minions. Eduardo offers Gru a chance to work together and rule the world, but Gru makes his excuses and leaves with the girls.Lucy, having realized that she wants to be with Gru, arrives at the party, but Eduardo discovers who she is and captures her. Dr. Nefario calls Gru to tell him what has happened, and Gru takes two of his minions to get Lucy back.

Reviews
I find that the movie revolves about how minions act stupidly in the movie which rather amuse me. The scene where both Gru and Lucy get married in the end with the minions singing the song  make my tummy bursts into laughter. The minions are really cute to me and the plot is not that interesting as I thought. Anyway I enjoyed watching the movie with my friend. At least, this movie can reduce my stress from work at least once. :P Rate of the movie: 3.5/5.
