Movie Screening: Despicable Me 2

Last week JAM and I attended an advanced Press Screening for Despicable Me 2! We loved the first movie so I was so excited to tell JAM that we get to attend the movie screening for the second one! Here's a little synopsis of the movie if you've never seen it before:

Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment’s worldwide blockbuster Despicable Me entertained audiences around the globe in 2010, grossing more than $540 million and becoming the 10th-biggest animated motion picture in U.S. history.  In summer 2013, get ready for more Minion madness in Despicable Me 2.  

Chris Meledandri and his acclaimed filmmaking team create an all-new comedy adventure featuring the return of (former?) super-villain Gru (Steve Carell), his adorable girls, the unpredictably hilarious Minions...and a host of new and outrageously funny characters.

As you know, JAM absolutely loves 3D movies so you can imagine his excitement when he found out this screening was in 3D. We watched the screening at the Orleans Hotel in Las Vegas, NV; a nice switch from our usual locations at the Palms Hotel or Town Square. We grabbed our 3D glasses and got comfy in our Press section seats. Right from the opening credits we were both laughing. The minions always add a fun touch to the movie. There were moments where JAM was laughing so hard that he tapped me on the shoulder to tell me he was crying ha ha. I always get disappointed when I watch movie trailers and the clips from the trailers are the only funny parts of the movie. Not with Despicable Me 2. There were TONS of hilarious scenes to tickle your fancy. There was even a couple "adult humor" lines to keep us grown ups intrigued. Both JAM and I agreed that our favorites scenes were definitely any scene that featured the minions. Their gestures and interaction with each other are always super funny so we couldn't choose just one favorite scene. JAM said he definitely loved their disguises in the mall scene if he did have to choose specific scene. I'd give Despicable Me 2 an overall 8 out of 10 rating (with 10 being the highest of course). Absolutely family friendly and I might go ahead to say that I actually liked it more than the first one (*gasp*)!

DESPICABLE ME 2 opened nationwide on Wednesday, July 3, 2013.
