    I have to know, Doug, where are the regular reviews after the Bum ones? I liked having both but that seems to have stopped.

    They've been replaced by Sibling Rivalry.

    I've been wondering the same thing.

    It's even worse when you see one of the Simpson Penis's butt-crack in the movie poster

    Yea it's sad when a sequel's story turns out to be more about the side characters or the side attractions than what made the original good... Unless the movie was all about the side attractions and/or side characters. Then it's just repeating itself (apparently the chief complaint with Hangover 2)

    With that said... I freaking love the Minions! :D

    Now I have the Minion version of Barbara Ann stuck in my head. Thanks Doug! XP
  • Dr.A  - I didn't really like the first one, either...

    Everyone I know loves Despicable Me, but I just thought it was....aaaalright I gueeeess...?

    I went to Despicable Me 2 yesterday and it was...um, well the review kind of summed it up perfectly.

    Also, no joke about Mr. Ramsbottom?
    Too obvious, I guess.

    Probably going to catch it sometime next week when I'm with alot of family especially younger cousins. I thought the first one was enjoyable for the most part. Funny Bum review. Simpsons penises...dear lord haha.

    Overall, I thought DM2 was as good as the original.

    Loved the Bum Review. Can't wait for the Sibling Rivalry.

    Haven't seen this movie yet, but I liked the first one and this one looks just as fun.

    I wonder what Chester would think of the Minions' movie. A whole film about Simpsons' penises.

    back when the first movie came out, I thought it was ok. and as soon as I saw the ending, I knew two things:
    there was going to be a sequel
    it was not going to be good
    I'm not going to see this movie, but I think I was right about it

    Went to see it with the kids today. It was pretty decent. I honestly liked it more than Monsters U.

    In Human Boobie's defence, she'd already given Gru the lipstick taser before she went to Australia.

    I did like this movie though...

    I too don't think it's a bad movie. Sure, the first one was better, but I've seen FAR WORSE sequels than this.

    If I had one problem with this movie, then it's probably the way the story is told. It's a bit clunky. I love the Minion randomness as much as I did in the first movie, but where the Minion scenes were part of the story in the first movie, they're distracting from it in this one. Which really is a bummer, as the story of this movie isn't as strong to begin with. C'mon, the anti-villain-league- thingy hires Gru so they can ask him for advise as to how a supervillain thinks, yet they totally ignore him ALL THE TIME? And why does nobody in the movie give a rat's ass about the fact that Margo MIGHT just be a little sad after her first heartbreak? And if we're going for Minion randomness anyway, why not explore Minion Dave's feelings for Lucy a little more? I laughed my ass off at that scene, yet it's never mentioned again afterwards...

    The movie is a lot of fun however. Lucy/HumanBoobies is an awesome addition to the cast. Even though you know how the movie's going to end, you really want her and Gru to end up together. Agnes continues to be my favorite kid character ever and then there's the chicken. I really. Really. Loved that chicken.

    I would have thought they would have learned a lesson from Cars 2 automatically making a movie based solely around the popular side character doesn't necessarily make it a good movie.


    But its for kids and if they enjoy it, it's probably harmless anyway.

    I swear that the Bum Reviews are the untapped cure for depression. If they could bottle these things and sell them, the world would be a better place. :)

    Why... why did you give me that mental image?

    Those aren't Simpsons penises! Those are Simpsons noses!

    Not joking! We have a Homer Simpson figurine and when we were unpacking him we found the nose broke off.

    At least we now know where that nose went.

    I didn't get the simpson penis joke on Face book until I watched the review, lol

    That little strand of hair that WILL NOT GET OUT OF DOUG'S FACE must be very essential to this character.
  • legnaus
    You know, I always thought of minions as cheetos people...

    I never understood why the first movie seemed so successfull that it warranted a sequel. I haven't watched either, but all they advertise are the little thingies. What's the point?

    Are they funny? Not really, given what I've seen. Are they interesting? Definitely not. Can we identify with them? Well only as far as saying yes, because they look like the yellow-version of the splooge rubber stuff we ate as kids.

    What's the plot of the movies, anyway? Maybe the movies are just the yellow thingies running around and making dumb noises. If I wanna see that for an hour, I'll just look up spliced-together clips of that Kubimon thingy or whatever it was called in Tamers.

    The movies are certainly more than just the minions. The first one's plot is a villain who is forced to be a parent and better himself and the second one is the now ex-villain struggling to live a new evil-free life which includes getting over his fear of women rejecting him.

    The minions are silly little things he created and they were so popular with the audience from the first film that they've been turned into cash cow of the franchise. They actually ARE quite hilarious.

    A few little problems with this review:

    1. The moon fiasco happened just as fast as it was resolved in less than an hour (in the world of Despicable Me) in the first film. Even if the AVL reacted to it, by the time they would have gotten there, the scheme would have been over.

    2. Lucy thought that El Macho was holding Gru prisoner. Recall that El Macho never told her that Gru left. And even if she did use the Karate moves, El Macho has a giant army of purple indestructible Minions. All he would have to do would be call the Minions and Lucy would be defeated.

    3. She gave the Lipstick Tazor to Gru right before she left to fly to Australia.

    4. Remember, they said 147 dates late before getting Gru and Lucy to get married. That in itself would have created enough time for the girls to get to know Lucy much more.

    Personally, Film Brain said it best about this movie and he was very positive towards it.
