While the success of Despicable Me seemed to land at the feet of Steve Carell as the voice of Gru, the ever-bumbling villain with a heart of gold, let’s be honest: Kids and adults alike fell head over heels for Gru’s sidekicks, The Minions, and I’m sure the makers of this sequel (returning directors Pierre Coffin and Chris Renaud) know that more Minions will mean more millions.
Of course, adding the vocal talents of Kristen Wiig, Ken Jeong, Russell Brand and Miranda Cosgrove can’t hurt, either. Now in theaters. (PG) Not screened in time for review
