I guess what made me ho-hum about the sequel was the focus more on romance and less on parenthood. I was looking forward to Gru learning more hard lessons about raising girls... which we had a little of with Antonio, but I guess I wanted more Not that what we got was bad really. I tend to say it's like they took two really well paced and scripted movies and shuffled them together into one kinda meandering slightly unfocused movie. I still smiled and laughed the whole way through, though, don't think I'm bashing it! I can see holes in the script is all, it's what I do.
