Despicable Me was a great film and very popular too, so it was no surprise that the makers came back with a second movie for the franchise.Â The mischievous goggle-wearing Minions and are up to more antics.Â We were sent a copy for review and were very excited to receive it.
Gru, former super-villain (voiced by Steve Carell), returns with his adopted daughters and the minions to go into the jelly and jam making business.Â Everything is going fine when Lucy Wild, ultra-secret Anti-Villain League agent, knocks on his door.Â Lucy’s been sent on a mission to track down the world’s next evil threat.Â It’s the classic poacher-turned-gamekeeper scenario, but it sets the scene for lots of laughs.
I think that fans of the first movie will enjoy this one too as it’s very funny indeed.Â In fact, in some ways it’s better and funnier than the first one.Â There’s enough of a story to keep the grown ups interested too, which means that this movie is a good choice for a family film night.
To celebrate the release of Despicable Me 2, on DVD and Blu-ray on 25th November, Scrivens Opticians have called on the stars of the film, the mischievous Minions (after all they are famous for their goggle specs) to help encourage parents to take their children for regular eye tests.
From the 20th November 2013, parents will be able to ensure their little onesâ€™ eyesight is in good hands with the â€˜Minion Approvedâ€™ eye test, available at all 146 Scrivens Opticians branches in the UK. As part of the limited edition sight test, children will receive an exclusive certificate to prove their eye test was approved by the fun-loving Minions. For those kids needing specs, Scrivensâ€™ full childrenâ€™s range of glasses will also be receiving special treatment, thanks to the Minions offering their official stamp of approval to the entire collection.
