These magical yellow movie critters have provided me with more joy in more ways than one. Cuter than cute in the first movie, provided absolute thrills in their 3D Universal Studios Orlando Ride and now has me totally smitten with their exhilarating mobile game, Minion Rush. Happy to say Despicable Me 2 doesn’t disappoint. Trailer doesn’t do it justice as the second movie is filled with as much cuteness and ROTFWL joy. Gru and his girls are back with a vengeance and so are his gazillion minions, up to their usual tricks. Monsters University could have learnt a trick or two from Despicable Me 2 – have characters that the audience would root for, and not be irritated with.
Add to that, the movie also gives us three very memorable songs. The first of course is the utterly irritatingly cute “Minion Banana Song” used for the trailer…
Then there’s the brilliant boyband tribute song, “Underwear”… (to the tune of ‘I Swear’)
And finally, there’s the truly make-you-wanna-get-up-and-dance ‘Happy’ tune by Pharrell Williams (Update: which was eventually nominated for an Oscar for Best Song)!
Despicable Me 2 – may not be as cute to the max as the first movie but still cute nonetheless. Don’t miss it!
