Despicable Me 3 - Movie Review!
My three children and I love the minions and the Despicable Me movies! I really enjoyed seeing this one. It was a little different then the first two movies. Agnes, the youngest of the three little girls talks a lot more and plays more of a role in this movie. She tries to find a unicorn in the forest and ends up finding something smaller and softer instead! There's a new minion named Mel that is pretty much the focus in this movie instead of Bob, Kevin and Stewart. I don't even remember these three being mentioned.
DM3 pretty much goes right into where Despicable Me 2 left off. Lucy is learning how to do the Mom thing and how to be a mother to the three girls. She's trying to be motherly and trying to set rules too. But she loves to spoil them also. There's a lot of 80's music in this movie and 80's references, which not everyone will get, but I did, because I was born in 1975! There was even a joke that only 80's children will probably get, as not everyone in the theater did. The movie starts off like parent trap, with both parents divorcing and each taking one baby when they split. It turns out that Gru and Dru's Dad was a Villain! It's neat watching the bond form between Dru and Gru. They both have a lot of fun trying to be villains, and then saving the city!
There's even a dance off between Gru and Balthazar Bratt! That was fun!
There is nothing scary about this movie. No bad language, nothing SCARY about it. Just good Minion fun!
About Despicable Me 3:
Illumination, who brought moviegoers Despicable Me and the biggest animated hits of 2013 and 2015, Despicable Me 2 and Minions, continues the story of Gru, Lucy, their adorable daughters—Margo, Edith and Agnes—and the Minions in Despicable Me 3.
After he is fired from the Anti-Villain League for failing to take down the latest bad guy to threaten humanity, Gru finds himself in the midst of a major identity crisis. But when a mysterious stranger shows up to inform Gru that he has a long-lost twin brother—a brother who desperately wishes to follow in his twin’s despicable footsteps—one former super-villain will rediscover just how good it feels to be bad.
Steve Carell not only reprises his role as Gru, but also takes on a second part—that of Dru, Gru’s long-lost twin. Kristen Wiig returns as super-spy Lucy, while Emmy, Tony and Grammy Award winner Trey Parker voices new villain Balthazar Bratt, a former child star who has become obsessed with the evil TV character he played in the ’80s. Gru’s most formidable and comedic nemesis to date, Bratt is out to take down Hollywood…and anyone who stands in his way.
