Gru (Steve Carell) and his wife Lucy (Kristen Wiig) must stop former '80s child star Balthazar Bratt (Trey Parker) from achieving world domination. -WWW
STRONG PARENTAL GUIDANCE should have been the rating of this movie, but they did not want to scare the parents away because this indeed a family bound by love film, so it's simply PG here in the Republic of the Philippines(In the Philippines, PG is for 13 and under---unlike elsewhere, PG is 7 and under, so they have to specify PG-13---here, if it's violent or whatever else, they make it R-13---meaning, even with parents, 13 and under are banned from entering).
It's always a joy to watch Gru, the minions and the girls, but when Lucy entered the picture in the first franchise and second installment, I must say that for me, it became more exciting.
Of course, nothing beats the original, but this is a fun movie too, but there are lots of scenes traumatizing for very young kids, so please do your roles, parents and guardians. Thankfully, all parents and guardians viewing with us at the Commercenter were very alert, caring and loving.
One little girl was scared and started to cry(parents, I reiterate, there are lots of reasons why this is PG-13 or simply PG here in the Republic of the Philippines, so please be ready to explain stuff or hold their hands or calm the kids when they are scared). Thankfully, the dance fight made her want to dance too.
Family is not just by blood. It is love that binds.
Oh, adults would surely love this film from start to finish.
I think that's all I want to say. ;-)
