Despicable Me 3
Director: Pierre Coffin, Kyle Balda
Cast: Steve Carell, Kristen Wiig, Trey Parker, Miranda Cosgrove, Steve Coogan, Jenny Slate, Dana Gaier, Julie Andrews
Gru and Lucy are outwitted by an 80s-obsessed supervillain Balthazar Bratt, which costs them their jobs in the AVL (Anti-Villain League). Now jobless and aimless, Gru learns that he has a twin brother named Dru who wants him to return to villainy. This franchise was beginning to run out of steam in Despicable Me 2 but felt refreshed in the hilarious Minions spin-off. My expectations were low for the third episode, and they were met. The Minions return in a smaller role, and they go off on a story tangent that has nothing to do with what Gru is doing. However, what the movie lacks in storytelling, it makes up with the high quality and quantity of the gags.
