Our thoughts on the film:
As you can see from the above picture, my son LOVES Despicable Me. He has Minion toys everywhere & has about 8 different Minion shirts that he wears any chance he can get. The first movie was on repeat every other weekend it seemed so I was VERY happy to know that they had come out with a second movie. We saw it in the theater & we hadn't even come out from seeing it, and he was already asking when the DVD was coming out!
Luckily, we were able to review a copy before its release & we've been watching it non-stop since. What I love the most about the Despicable Me 2 combo pack is that it brings the 3 extra mini-movies featuring the lovable Minions! My son was happy to see something new. It doesn't matter how many times he watches though, he laughs every single time. I don't mind since I live for hearing that little laugh. Fun from start to finish – we definitely recommend this movie! It's just as fun, if not more, than the first movie & even if you haven't seen the first movie, it's easy to follow along. One movie that the whole family is sure to love!
