DM2 is not as good as the first one straight off the bat. The plot is nowhere near as imaginative which is the films main problem and while Kristen Wiig is a welcome and talented addition, DM2 misses Jason Segal from the first one. On the plus side the producers have realized the minions are the best thing about the film so there is more of them. I am not ashamed to admit as a 26 year old man that I laughed more at the minions antics than I have at any other film in 2013. Another plus is there is lots for adults to enjoy unlike say recent watch Turbo. I particularly enjoyed the nod to Invasion of the Body Snatchers. Once again though DM2 shows that animated comedies are just miles better than their live action counterparts.
