Despicable Me 2 DVD Prize Pack #Giveaway! #DespicableMeDos #DM2DVD #Ad

*This post was written by me on behalf of Universal Studios Home Entertainment.  I received a DVD of the film to review.  All opinions are 100% mine.

    My boys and I love to go to the movies together when my husband is working on Saturdays.  One of our all-time favorite animated films was Despicable Me and we really enjoyed going to see it together at our favorite movie theater.  That is why we were thrilled when we found out that Despicable Me 2 was coming to the big screen!

    We made plans to go see it over and over but it seems that life had another plan and we kept having to postpone our movie date.  Since we never got to see it in the movies, we were very excited to have the opportunity to watch it together on DVD.  We knew that, if it was anything like the first movie, we would love the characters and all of their funny antics.

    Gru, his adorable girls, and the mischievous Minions are back with a cast of unforgettable new characters in the blockbuster sequel to the worldwide phenomenon.  Just as Gru has given up being super-bad to be a super-dad, the Anti-Villain League recruits him to track down a new criminal mastermind and save the world.

    Partnered with secret agent Lucy Wilde, Gru, along with the wildly unpredictable Minions, must figure out how to keep his cover while also keeping up with his duties as a father.  Let’s not forget that the Minions guarantee that we will be laughing non-stop with all of their silliness!

    My seven-year old loved it so much that he can’t stop talking about it.  His favorite part was when El Macho turned the Minions into purple Minions.  He says that it was cool the way that they were just shaking and blowing raspberries with their tongues.  Also, his favorite character was Lucy Wilde because he really liked her lipstick taser.  I’m sure he has already recommended the movie to all of his friends in the second grade!

But by the end of movie we are all on one sofa cuddled up with each other and sat on by the youngest two and being sandwiched by the oldest two. It’s actually great family “love” time.

    We do a movie night once per week. Shopping must happen in advance, there must be a mix of salty and sweet snacks. So popcorn, Doritos (for me), and then ice cream and chocolate, not to mention I always get wrangled into ordering Pizza somehow. (Even if everyone already ate!). Once everyone nods out I put on a horror movie! 🙂

  60. Karen Hewitt says

    With a 3 year old and a two year old, movie night or rather afternoon can be very chaotic. If we get a movie that they end up liking its peaceful and relaxing, however sometimes they decide they are not a fan and it becomes chaotic.

    We usually have all the kids and we bake chef boy r dee pizza – our favorite – before the movie. The kids love making them and its quality time spent together.

  81. Maria Elena Dominguez says

    We have alot of movie nights because there’s not much to do in the tiny little town we live in. My son usually picks the movie and we always get snacks to have during the movie. It’s fun to have something to do with just our son since I gotta pay alot of attention to our other little one right now that she’s sick. So we usually do movie night after she goes to bed.

  94. Maria Iemma says

    My grandkids each have their own bean chairs and I sit in my recliner chair. We all share a bag of popcorn and candy and drink either lemonade or ice tea – sometimes I surprise them with a couple of chocolate bars.

  95. A typical family movie night starts with us rearranging the furniture so we all get a good view of the big screen. One of us makes a huge batch of air popped popcorn with extra butter, the real thing, none of that sprinkle stuff 🙂 We get pillows, blankets, a few stuffed animals we think might enjoy the movie, too, and whatever we think might make us more comfy, which varies. We all snuggle, start the movie and wash down the buttery popcorn with ice water or lemonade when we don’t forget to get it.

  96. A typical family movie night at my house would consist of me sitting on my recliner and my son on the couch in our living room.

  97. movie night involves making hot buttery popcorn and getting all cozy on the couch together. since our son is 6 we end up watching great movies like despicable me 2, letting him stay up late, which thrills him more than anything.

  98. Jamie Hornbeak says

    Before the movie starts, it’s chaos. Everyone (my mom and my niece or my cousin, the toddler) has to get situated, snacks have to be made, bathroom breaks have to be taken. Cell phones must be flipped over to keep from seeing the screens light up from every text. Then, the show can begin!

  99. A typical movie night in our house usually happens immediately after a board game. We love to play Sorry or Monopoly Millionaire (and usually get beat by our seven year-old son!). Afterward, I will usually make us some snacks and we’ll settle in for a movie. Our son will either snuggle up on the couch with me or he’ll squish into his dad’s favorite chair for some boy time. We turn the lights off and enjoy whatever movie our son has chosen.

  100. Rhonda McElveen says

    Movie night is turning of the lights, sitting in front of the big screen and eating popcorn.

  106. Cassandra Eastman says

    A typical movie night in our house is sitting on the cough with a HUGE blanket over me, my 2 & 4 year old and husband eating some popcorn!

  107. Cheryl HeartnSoulmom says

    A typical movie night for our family starts with a buffet style dinner, such as taco or baked potato bar. Everyone help prepare it so no one is doing all the work while the movie is going. We lay it all out on the living room table and everyone digs in while we start the movie. We make pallets in the floor with tons of pillows and blankets. Parents, kids, grandkids, cat and dog all pile up for a night of movies. We try to do that once a month, just to connect and be close to one another.
