Our favorite villain-turned-hero, Felonious Gru, had everything going for him. Three beautiful daughters. A lovely wife. And a great job with the good guys – the Anti-Villain League.
Then a brat by the name of Balthazar Bratt entered the scene, and Gru hasn’t been the same since. Bratt stole the world’s largest diamond, despite the best efforts by Gru (Steve Carell) and his wife, Lucy (Kristen Wiig). That got Gru fired, which sparked a period of deep soul-searching.
“I feel like a failure, like I don’t have a purpose,” he tells his wife.
“It’s time to look forward,” she responds, “Things will get better.”
That’s when Gru’s long-lost twin brother Dru (Carell) enters the picture. His big idea: return to villainy! Dru even tells a surprised Gru that their father was a famous villain named “The Bald Terror.”
At first, Gru is resistant to the idea, but the more Dru talks, the more it sounds appealing.
“You can’t tell me you don’t miss it!” Dru says.
