Once again directed by Pierre Coffin and Chris Renaud, Despicable Me 2 finds Gru in the throes of domestic, fatherly bliss tending to his three adopted girls: Margo, Edith and Agnes. But things take an unexpected turn when Anti-Villain League agent Lucy Wilde pays Gru a visit, kidnapping him and two of his Minions in the process.
Gru reluctantly partners with Lucy and together they search for the villain that has stolen a secret Arctic laboratory. While on their hunt, Gru concludes that the prime suspect is the presumed dead super villain El Macho, whose teenage son is also making the moves on his eldest daughter, Margo. Blinded by his overprotectiveness of his children and his growing attraction to Lucy, Gru seems on the wrong tack, even as his Minions are beign quietly kidnapped en masse for some malevolent purpose…
