Review: Despicable Me 2 (2013 movie)

Reformed super-villain Gru is recruited to help a shadowy agency track down a super-villain of the unreformed sort, and in the course of this Gru acquires a girlfriend, an agent of the Anti-Villain League voiced by Kristen Wiig.

I forget what director said he wanted a female lead who would make every man in the audience think he was the only one who realized how attractive she was. That’s more or less how Wiig’s character comes across. She’s not beautiful, but she’s charming and likable, so she seems more and more appealing as the film goes on.

The sequel isn’t as good as the original, but it’s still pretty entertaining, which is often the best one can hope for from a sequel.
