As I mentioned before, Daisy and I watched the original Despicable Me not very long ago. I liked it, and she loved it enough to make sure we saw the sequel almost immediately. Sometimes sequels to animated films can be rather awful, but this one may be even better than its predecessor.
The plot begins with Gru giving up his evil past to be a father to his adoptive daughters. While he is happy making jams to support himself, he is asked by Lucy of the Anti-Villain League for help. Since Gru knows how bad guys think, he may be able to figure out who the mysterious person is that they're after.
All the Anti-Villain league can figure out is that the villain is somewhere at the local mall. So Gru and Lucy pretend to have a bakery in order to get to know everyone at the mall better. While Gru is trying to figure out who the bad guy is, he doesn't even notice his own minions disappearing one-by-one.
Overall I think both Despicable Me and Despicable Me 2 are about the same level of quality. Though I will say the original is more hilarious while the 2nd film has a much better story and villain. I hear there is a prequel movie next year starring the minions, so I hope it will do the series justice.
