What Animates Me

My kids love the movie Despicable Me, even my two year old, who recently demanded his own minion.

To be honest, I wasn't all that crazy about the movie when I finally got around to watching it.  But Despicable Me 2 is a whole 'nother story because.... apparently, I'm in it!!

That's right, I've been animated as a feisty character named Lucy Wilde.  Finally my dramatic talent has been recognized!

Anyway, I give Despicable Me 2 two thumbs up and a ju jitsu slash krav maga karate chop for action, humor and great character work.  If you haven't seen it yet, I highly recommend it. 

And if you know me, prepare to be slightly freaked out!
