Film review: 'Despicable Me' sequel's minions deliver loads of laughs
The minion characters in "Despicable Me 2."

“Despicable Me 2” is a gag-filled delight from start to finish. It's got more laughs in its first five minutes — from its larynx-bending voice actors, its loopy, goofy design and its milling, mewling Minions — than “Monsters University” managed over its entire length.
And if much of the message, the warmth and the “changed villain” character arc of the original film is missing, the giggles and laughs make up for it.
