My boys and I actually got to see this movie in theaters.  We loved it so much though that they kept begging me buy it when it released.  
Here is what we loved:
The story line as always is cute and easy to follow.  You of course have your villain, Balthazar Bratt.  Just like the other Despicable Me movies the villain is more funny than bad.  With his cheesy one liners and even dorkier "weapon" my kids were loosing it nonstop.  He tries to destory Gru and gang with a giant bubble lol

Gru gets to meet his long lost brother Dru, who just happens to have a glorious full head of hair.  To provided much torment for Gru, but added much laughter for everyone else. 

The girls of course are as sweet as ever.  Agnes is determined to find a unicorn in this movie...  AND SHE DOES... well kind of.  I wont spoil it, but I can promise you will giggle.

And finally the Minions, it wouldn't be a Despicable Me movie without them.  Well in this movie they go to jail, build a plane, escape jail and even have one heck of a singing/dance number.

I like that we get to see all the characters grow.  Even the minions do some personal growth in this movie.  For anyone that followed the movies so far, you do not want to miss this one.  The ending suggest we may see more for this beloved series.
