Despicable Me 2

I can't remember offhand where we saw Despicable Me, although no doubt it's in my film archive somewhere, but I do remember quite enjoying it. So it was with a pleasant sense of anticipation that we went to see the sequel, imaginatively called Despicable Me 2.
   The cinema was full, most unusual in Ayr, probably because of the film's hype and it was the first day of the school holidays. Anyway, that always adds to the atmosphere.
   I thought it was quite a good film, but not quite up to the standard of the first, possibly because it had lost some of the original novelty value. On the other hand, Small Boy said he preffered DM2, and he's the target audience. You pays your money and you takes your choice.
   I won't give the plot away, other than to say that it is actually less plot oriented and more character oriented that DM1, and that there is a truly classic Minion Moment towards the end that had the audience erupting with laughter.
   If you have a Small Child, I recommend DM2. If you haven't... hmmm, you might want to wait for it to come out as a dvd, to avoid embarrasment in the cinema, but I'd recommend buying the dvd so that you can view it in the secrecy of your own home.
