Friday Night Flicks Presents: Despicable Me 2

Despicable Me 2

Friday January 10th, 6:00 p.m., in the Community Room

This is one of those rarities, an animated sequel that improves on the original. The film again follows Gru, a master criminal turned family man and father to his three adopted girls--and their pill-shaped minions--as they help a secret agent thwart and arch-villain. The pitch-perfect voice cast includes Benjamin Bratt, Russell Brand, and Steve Coogan. (Rotten Tomatoes review)

Rated PG.
