Building on the success of the first film, the adorable and hilarious minions are given much more screen time this time around. When Gru is approached by the Anti-Villain League to track down a criminal mastermind in a local shopping mall, he is teamed with a female partner and given a cake shop to run. All of this is of course incidental, and just padding to give the little yellow guys another opportunity to clown around and talk nonsense. I was sold, it’s hilarious.
