In this sequel to the 2010 animated film, former supervillain-turned-doting foster dad Gru (Steve Carell) pulls a Fast & Furious 6 and works with the good guys. The Anti-Villain League (AVL) calls on him to track down the mastermind who snatched up a chemical that can turn life forms into unstoppable mutant beasts. He reluctantly partners with Kristen Wiig's kooky yet deadly AVL agent, whom he eventually warms up to. Returning directors Pierre Coffin and Chris Renaud keep the pandering sentimentality that made the first movie feel so uneven to a minimum in favor of getting in touch with their inner Chuck Jones and coming up with a lot of surreal, screwball moments. Chaos enjoyably reigns throughout this flick.
