Despicable Me 3 (2017)

Director:

Kyle Balda

Pierre Coffin

Eric Guilon

Starring:

Steve Carell

Kristen Wiig

Trey Parker

Plot:

Gru meets his long-lost charming, cheerful, and more successful twin brother Dru who wants to team up with him for one last criminal heist.

Review:

Gru, Steve Carell, and Lucy, Kristen Wiig, are working on getting into the groove of a married couple and in the case of Lucy a mom. Things of course are never easy and they get fired from the job they love. Then Gru finds out he’s got a twin brother and things go from there.

I freaking loved Balthazar Bratt, Trey Parker, as the villain. The 80s music and clothes, the mullet and balding spot at the top of his head, it was all perfect. So funny!

I didn’t like the Minions movie, but I thought this was a return to what made Despicable Me 2 so good. I really liked it and my daughter enjoyed it too.

4/5

Review:

Best part of this movie was the music.

So, for the life of me, I tried to watch this movie but it just didn’t hold my attention. Thankfully, my daughter at least enjoyed it and she watched the entire thing, which is crazy.

I really like the Despicable Me movies, but I’ve never been Minion obsessed. Though, I do have a Minion pencil box, but that’s beside the point. There was really no need for a full length movie about them. I mean, they don’t even speak in an understandable language. It’s like French and gibberish and they’re such a continuous stream of stupid.

Oh well, this will not be added to my library and hopefully I’ll never have to try and watch it again.

2.5/5
