It's movie time with Despicable Me 3 and Leap!
It's Christmas break and that means it's time to watch lots of movies! We always catch up on all the latest movies over Christmas break because it seems like it's always too cold to play outside. So far we have watched Despicable Me 3 and Leap! and let me tell you we've been having lots of laughs. If you've not seen any of the Despicable Me movies then you are missing out big time. They are all super funny and build off of each other. The third installment in the series is just as funny as the first two - if not funnier. Leap! is a little more laid back and not back to back laughs, but the story-line is a good one and one you'll want to follow along with so pay attention. My daughter wanted to see it in the theater, but we didn't have time when it was playing so she was super excited to watch it. She wants to be a singer and dance when she grows up so the story was perfect for her!
Despicable Me 3
Illumination, the studio that brought you Sing, The Secret Life of Pets and the Despicable Me franchise, continues the adventures of Gru and his family in Despicable Me 3. After he is fired from the Anti-Villain League for failing to take down Balthazar Bratt (Trey Parker, “South Park,” Team America: World Police), the latest evil mastermind to threaten humanity, Gru finds himself in the midst of a major identity crisis. But when a mysterious stranger shows up to inform Gru that he has a long-lost twin brother — a brother who desperately wishes to follow in his twin’s despicable footsteps — the former super-villain rediscovers just how good it feels to be bad.

Eleven-year-old orphan Félicie (Fanning) has one dream — to go to Paris and become a dancer. Her best friend, Victor (Wolff), an imaginative, exuberant boy with a passion for creating, has a dream of his own — to become a famous inventor. In a leap of faith, Victor and Félicie leave their orphanage in pursuit of their passions. But there’s a catch: Félicie must pretend to be the child of a wealthy family in order to gain admittance to the prestigious and competitive Opera Ballet School in Paris. And with no professional dance training, she quickly learns that talent alone is not enough to overcome the ruthless, conniving attitudes of her fellow classmates, led by the devious Camille Le Haut (Ziegler). Determined to succeed, Félicie finds her mentor in the tough and mysterious school custodian, Odette (Jepsen), who, along with Victor’s encouraging friendship, help her reach for the stars.
