After the lackluster (but monstrously successful) enjoyment of Monsters University (Movie Man No. 1,040, a 5), the Movie Man is happy to report that there’s a much better sequel out there, Despicable Me 2. Much better.
About the film
Despicable Me (2010, MM #885, 7) was a surprise hit. It was expected to be a success – almost every decently-made animated movie is when appropriately timed (that latter part is important as Rise of the Guardians discovered last Christmas) – but the original really excelled.
