Despicable Me 2

Our main character, a supervillain-turned-foster-dad (voiced by Steve Carell), is considerably more toothless this time around, having given up his world-conquering ways. But the humor is infectious, and the story is sweet. Cartoons used to be about gags, not about plots, and this film really knows how to construct an old-school, animated gag. It lacks the edgy spark of the original, but the kids in the audience won't notice. 98 minutes PG.
