Rotten Tomato rating: 80%

Rated: PG for rude humor and mild action

Plot: Now that Gru has forsaken a life of crime to raise Margo, Agnes and Edith, he’s trying to figure out how to provide for his new family. As he struggles with his responsibilities as a father, the Anti-Villain League — an organization dedicated to fighting evil — comes calling, ready to sends Gru on a mission to capture the perpetrator of a spectacular heist, for who would be better than the world’s greatest ex-villain to capture the individual who seeks to usurp his power.

Comment: “Despicable Me 2″ is a gag-filled delight from start-to-finish. It’s got more laughs in its first five minutes — from its larynx-bending voice actors, its loopy, goofy design and its milling, mewling Minions – than “Monsters University” managed over its entire length. And if much of the message, the warmth and the “changed villain” character arc of the original film is missing, the giggles and laughs make up for it. The babbling Minions move front and center for this sequel, tapping into the kid-friendliest element of the first film. They’re what make “Despicable Me 2″ the funniest kids’ cartoon of the summer. 3 1/2 stars (out of four) — Roger Moore, MovieNation.com
