Some days the kid and I have days off when we hang in our pyjamas and watch movies. The best of these days was one when I made popcorn and we watched Wreck It Ralph and Despicable Me back to back. I didn’t think she would make it through one, let alone both, but together we did, laughing all the way.
That’s why I was pretty excited when I heard about the release of Despicable Me 2.
I have a thing for the minions.
The kid was not as big a fan of the second movie, the purple minions are a bit scary, but she loves Margo, Agnes and Edith. She always talks about their ballet recital in the first movie. She also laughs at the minions, but not once they get growly.
Me? I think it’s a great movie, hilarious. Gru is great and the addition of the Kristen Wiig character is fantastic.
I think as the kid gets older she’ll be more interested in watching the second movie again and we’ll be able to have mini marathons.
Disclosure: I was sent a complimentary copy of Despicable Me 2 on Blu-Ray. All opinions expressed here are my own.
