When last we met, the dastardly Gru (Steve Carell) had been turned to the side of good by new wife Lucy (Kristen Wiig), as well as his trio of adopted “leetle gorls”.
But is Gru really a changed grump, or is it a case of once a bad guy, always a bad guy? Enter shoulder-padded supervillain Balthazar Bratt (Trey Parker) – a former ’80s child star who’s lost track of the line between his TV role and real life. Gru is still under the employ of the Anti-Villain League, until a failed takedown of Bratt sees both he and Lucy sacked. Then comes word that Gru has a twin brother, named Dru (also Carell), who’s everything that Gru isn’t – rich, stylish and, well, not bald. But he’s been a failure in the family business of evilness, and wants to tempt Gru back into the life. Will our anti-antihero succumb to the temptation? While DM2 didn’t quite get the parents/kids amusement balance right, this third outing is bang-on. From choice ’80s cuts (Michael Jackson, Madonna, A-ha, Nena) bumping it with new Pharrell tracks, plenty of genuinely clever-funny era-related gags (thank you, Van Halen) and just the right amount of slapstick, Despicable Me 3 is genuinely superb all-in-the-family entertainment.
