Review:Giveaway Post

Despicable Me 2

Gru, the girls, and those minions we all love are back and ready to come to your home on Blu-ray™ and Blu-ray 3D™ Combo Packs, DVD and Digital HD including UltraViolet™ on December 10, 2013!

We went to theaters to see Despicable Me 2, before the movie was even over, I knew this is one we would own.  I had no second thought of heading to stores on December 10 to purchase it. I was pleasantly surprised when it came much earlier in the mail, but my kids were even more excited.  We’ve had the movie for a few weeks now and it’s been played at least once a day.  Sometimes more than once if we have a lot of driving to do, the kids will watch it in the van.

Despicable Me 2 is a follow up to the 2010 worldwide blockbuster and features the voice talent of Steve Carell, who returns to play Gru, the newly reformed master criminal now trying to live life as a normal dad to his three adopted daughters. Along with Carell we have a voice cast of comedic powerhouses that includes Kristin Wiig, Benjamin Bratt, Miranda Cosgrove, Russell Brand, Steve Coogan, Ken Jeong, Elsie Fisher, Dana Gaier, and Moisés Arias.

Gru, his adorable girls, and the mischievous Minions are back with a cast of unforgettable new characters in the blockbuster sequel to the worldwide phenomenon.  Just as Gru has given up being super-bad to be a super-dad, the Anti-Villain League recruits him to track down a new criminal mastermind and save the world.   Partnered with secret agent Lucy Wilde, Gru, along with the wildly unpredictable Minions, must figure out how to keep his cover while also keeping up with his duties as a father.  Assemble the Minions for laugh-out-loud comedy in “one of the funniest, most enjoyable movies

I laughed as much as my kids when I watched Despicable Me 2. It’s one of those movies the whole family can enjoy. Who doesn’t enjoy watching the cute little minions, I want one (or a few hundred) of my own minions! Speaking of the minions, did you happen to catch our favorite yellow cuties make their appearance in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade??

    Is it odd that I have yet to see either Despicable Me movie yet? I’ve heard nothing but great things, so I should arrange a marathon of them both soon. Perhaps over winter break!
