‘Despicable Me 2’ Gives You Your Own Minion (Well, They Should!)

despicable me 2You can tell a lot about a person by the ring tone on their phone. For months now, any time someone has sent me a text message, mine has yelped “It’s so fluffy, I’m gonna die!” Fans of Despicable Me will recognize it as Agnes losing her you-know-what upon the site of a stuffed unicorn and me as a die-hard fan. What can I say? If this were a perfect world, I would have my own minion.

But seeing as the world is still the same one we woke up in yesterday, I’m making do with second best. Despicable Me 2 comes out on Blu-Ray this Tuesday, y’all! Happy dance. Happy dance!

Minions for everyone! And if you somehow missed this movie full of minion madness in the theaters (shame on you), let me tell you, you’re in luck. Minus the giant screen and the sound system that we couldn’t even dream of affording, the at-home version might actually be better … for it comes with not one, not two, but three mini movies, all of which star the Twinkie-looking guys who could come live at my house any day now (still waiting).

Almost as good? “Gru’s girls” — aka the actresses who play Agnes, Edith, and Margo — have their own bonus feature where they explain what it’s like to play the daughters of the world’s sweetest super villain. Not a bad gig, as you’d imagine.

Frankly, I can’t say enough about this movie. Some predictability in the plotlines, but it’s actually laugh-out-loud funny … and not just for the kids. Not something you see in a lot of children’s movies.

And did I mention they have minions? Buying this is pretty much the closest you’ll get to owning one …
