    The funniest kids’ cartoon of the summer.

  • Lawrence Toppman

    For now, the franchise has enough zip and humor to be worthwhile.

  • Stephanie Zacharek

    There are so many ways Despicable Me 2 could have gone wrong, and so many things it does right.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    It's still a first-class charm assault.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Odie Henderson

    While I remain disappointed that the sequel gives me a subdued Gru and an uneven pace, I keep remembering things about Despicable Me 2 that make me smile. For every meh moment, there's almost 2 well-conceived gags or lines. Full Review
  • Tom Russo

    The scope of the ’toon espionage-adventure goings-on is surprisingly limited. But the filmmakers so clearly love working on these characters, their creative joy is infectious.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Sara Stewart

    As in the original “Despicable,” masterful physical comedy is what raises this animated pic so far above most of its competitors.

    New York Post Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Despicable Me 2 provides a good bonding opportunity for parents and children with enough palatable elements to please members of both generations.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    An animated sequel that, despite not achieving the inspired lunacy of the first movie where Gru literally steals the moon, is smartly calculated to deliver squeals to kids and amusement to accompanying adults.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Mary Pols

    Despicable Me 2 is far more entertaining than the disappointingly bland "Monsters University" and as a sequel stands level with the first film, and may have the edge on it.

    Time Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    The script — by Ken Daurio and Cinco Paul — is erratic, to put it generously. Yet the 3-D animation is so stylish and, from time to time, so downright beautiful, that you hardly notice when the storytelling loses track of itself.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Bilge Ebiri

    Despicable Me 2 does have plenty of what made the first film so entertaining — its wedding of James Bond–like gadgetry and visual invention with goofy slapstick, and the dizzying fun had with shrink rays, piranha guns, elaborate evil spaceships, and the like.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Betsy Sharkey

    Even with slightly heavier issues, like its predecessor, Despicable Me 2 is light on its feet, visually inventive and very fast with the repartee. It requires actors who can pull off the many peppery lines at warp speed and in that the film is lucky with its voice cast.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Peter Debruge

    While not quite as charming or unique as the original, Despicable Me 2 comes awfully close.

    Variety Full Review
  • Michael Rechtshaffen

    While the new edition doesn’t quite catch that inspired spark, there’s still plenty to enjoy here courtesy of those zippy visuals and a pitch-perfect voice cast led by the innately animated Steve Carell.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    There's enough here for a nice little movie, anyway, even if Al Pacino didn't think so. He was hired to voice the movie's arch villain but dropped out due to "creative differences."

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Bruce Ingram

    [A] remarkably tepid sequel to the surprise 2010 hit.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Tirdad Derakhshani

    If you're looking for quality prepackaged, predigested Hollywood family fun this summer, you could do a lot worse than Despicable Me 2.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Laremy Legel

    Despicable Me 2 is fun, especially near the culmination. Structural issues aside, it’s impossible not to like these characters, all of them, rendered with love, always entertaining even when the story around them doesn’t make much sense. Full Review
  • Joe Williams

    This loony 'toon is dizzy with wonderments, especially in 3-D. The spindly-limbed character design owes more to Charles Addams' family than to Walt Disney's kingdom, while the story and settings evoke James Bond on laughing gas.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    It's a reasonably efficient baby sitter, done up in 3-D computer-generated animation of no special distinction. But the first one's weird mixture of James Bond bombast and hyperactive pill-shaped Minions (the protagonist Gru's goggle-clad helpers) had the element of surprise in its favor.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Tasha Robinson

    Despicable Me 2 has its charms, in its spritely pacing, a rapid-fire gag-delivery system that hits as often as it misses, and especially in its innovative, expansive use of 3-D space.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    Easily the most enjoyable animated film of 2013 so far.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    A too-good Gru is a boring Gru. No matter how much you crank up the adorability factor or offer up the occasional laugh, there is no getting around that.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    Guaranteed to charm anyone who’s out of school and already bored.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Keith Uhlich

    Carell and Wiig make a splendid vocal pair — Nick and Nora Charles with ice guns and lipstick Tasers.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Helen O'Hara

    It falters in the middle and hesitates unnecessarily in setting up the love story, but Gru still has charm and kids will adore the Minions.

    Empire Full Review
  • Peter Bradshaw

    Nothing here to challenge anything from the Pixar golden age, but Despicable Me 2 is a sweet-natured family film.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Josh Winning

    The minions give good mayhem and the twig-armed animation’s lovely. Despite the coolest submarine-car since Bond’s Lotus Esprit, though, Despicable Me 2 is light on gadgets – and surprises, too.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Tim Robey

    The one inspired idea here is what happens to the minions when they’re injected with serum by the film’s mystery baddie, and this is enough to give us at least a reel’s worth of anarchic pleasure.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Guy Lodge

    Its repetitive qualities are beyond reproach. Every bit as amiable and disposable as its predecessor, it recycles everything from slapstick gags to its own voice cast.

    Time Out London Full Review
  • Marc Mohan

    It's just a shame that the search for the missing formula ends up feeling so formulaic.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    This shallow sequel to 2010's much cleverer Despicable Me — the 10th-biggest animated movie in U.S. history — seems to be merely going through the motions.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Steve Davis

    Given the outlandish premise, you'll wish the film twinkled with a more savvy sense of humor and adventure, like the chapters of the "Toy Story" series, for example.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Stephen Holden

    Once again, the lesson that more is not necessarily better, something rarely learned by blockbuster sequels, is forgotten.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • A.A. Dowd

    What’s missing — and this was the crucial component of part one — is a little sour to undercut the sweet. Like its protagonist, a bad guy gone boringly good, Despicable Me 2 has no edge. It’s fatally nice and insufficiently naughty.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    By the end, every child in the audience will want his or her own monster-minion toy. Adults will just regret the way that Despicable Me 2 betrays the original film’s devotion to bad-guy gaiety.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Drew Taylor

    You just wish that the kind of attention lavished on the visuals of Despicable Me 2 could have carried over to its storytelling. Despicable Me 2 lacks emotion and depth, and all the minions in the world can't make up for that.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Chris Cabin

    The script's jumble of plot asides and family-friendly pandering is enough to make you want to root for a hero.
