. Those gibberish-uttering, walking cheese-puffs Gru calls minions steal the show once again with delightfully juvenile routines. When Gru's assistant, Dr. Nefario, voiced by an unrecognizable (therefore tolerable) Russell Brand, confesses that he has been offered a position by another still-evil villain, the minions send him off with a 21-fart salute. Later in the movie, they even perform a hilarious minion-speak rendition of All-4-One's "I Swear." If the adults in the audience aren't won over by the physical comedy, there's also a satisfying amount of grown-up humor. Disguised as a hulking fairy princess, Gru is asked by a toddler why he is so fat. He replies in a high-pitched voice, "Sometimes I eat instead of facing my problems."
