I saw this years ago on DVD.
The plot begins with Gru giving up his evil past to be a father to his adoptive daughters. While he is happy making jams to support himself, he is asked by Lucy of the Anti-Villain League for help. Since Gru knows how bad guys think, he may be able to figure out who the mysterious person is that they’re after.
All the Anti-Villain league can figure out is that the villain is somewhere at the local mall. So Gru and Lucy pretend to have a bakery in order to get to know everyone at the mall better. While Gru is trying to figure out who the bad guy is, he doesn’t even notice his own minions disappearing one-by-one.
Overall I think both Despicable Me and Despicable Me 2 are about the same level of quality. Though I will say the original is more hilarious while the 2nd film has a much better story and villain.
