Gru's villainy is replaced by a cloying fish-out-of-water mentality that is tortured by overuse of the minions characters. Still, the film is entertaining and has several wonderful scenes that almost make up the difference.

The beautiful digital animation is state of the art but the story and comedy are utter cliche.

[Blu-ray Review] Sometimes, seeing a film in the best possible aesthetic presentation can make a lesser movie more palatable. For this, and for its dazzling visuals and audio quality, the Blu-ray of "Despicable Me 2" is worth checking out.

The minions are back and better than ever.

It's the zany goggle-wearing yellow-hued Minions who provide most of the film's chuckles and who justify the otherwise pointless 3D when they break the fourth wall at the start of the credits with a set of loopy antics.

The movie captures that magical mixture: naughtiness and goodness.

The only thing that really holds this sequel back... it just doesn't seem epic enough to be a "summer blockbuster"... then again, maybe that's a good thing...

Doesn't belong in the top ranks of animated fare but, like its predecessor, it contains enough humor, charm, and warmth to make it a solid family film.

THIS is what 3D should be.

A comical mash of cartoonish imagination and surreal detail that's just right for the mix of hyperkinetic humor and sentimental charm.

I think this is a fine animated comedy for kids, and parents can sit through it without despair. It just doesn't quite fit the adult audience quite as well as the first one did.

The story is unfocused, and capped by a resolution that has notable holes in reason, but even that could be forgiven in a cartoon with an arsenal of laughs.

What a nice surprise: Gru is just as funny as a good guy. 'Despicable Me 2' is, believe it or not, a romance-focused romp that has its share of villains. This time around, though, Gru is not among them.

Ranks as one of the best animated sequels of all time.

If the first film was in some ways a re-imagining of Seuss, with a grinchy Gru's heart growing from two sizes too small to one too large, Despicable Me 2 continues his rehabilitation from complete societal outlier to minion-infested community fixture.

The assumption seems to be that the public can't get enough Minions. Despicable Me 2 sets out to test that assumption to its absolute limit.

Likable characters, inventive visuals buoy "Despicable 2."

There's still an attempt at the playfully naughty misanthropy, but it feels tired and worn.

Everything that is good about it-including those wonderfully nattering minions who have even more screen time and play a bigger role in the narrative-is what was good in the first film, so there isn't any sense of growth or expansion

Good film about family values
