KatieBMumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 14-Jun-13 16:35:23

This thread is for the Mumsnetters who attended one of the exclusive MN screenings of Despicable Me 2 with their little minions DCs on Sunday 16th June. We hope you all had a fab time and enjoyed the film!

We really hope you and your DCs enjoyed the preview screening.
Below are a few questions for you to answer but please do add any other comments you may have.
We'd also love it if you could upload some pictures of your day to this thread.

- Please give a brief, one sentence review of the film

- Out of 5, how many stars would you give the film? How many would your DC give it? (5 is highest and 1 is lowest)

- What was your/your DC's favourite part of the film? Who is their favourite character and why?

- What did your DCs love best about the day?

- What was your overall experience of the screening?

- If it came up in conversation, would you recommend Despicable Me 2 to friends and family? Why?

Everyone who adds their feedback to this thread will be entered into a prize draw where one winner will receive a goodie bag packed full of Despicable Me 2 merchandise.

To find out more about the film (In cinemas June 28) and watch the trailer, visit the Despicable Me 2 pages on Mumsnet

Thanks and good luck!

Help!! Trying to print my tickets and it says "no tickets left"!!!!

stacysmom Fri 14-Jun-13 18:40:07

DH is genuinely delighted to be spending Father's Day at the O2! I've been bossed in to playing Gru all week while DD acts out being all three girls... my accent is coming along nicely grin

HokeyCokeyPigInAPokey Fri 14-Jun-13 18:48:56

I just want to check....

I have printed off the A4 sheet that says admit 4 and has a ticket code on it - is that right.

Is there anything else i need to print off?

TheOldestCat Fri 14-Jun-13 19:28:50

DH is usually massively grumpy about going anywhere at the weekend.

But he is very excited about going to the O2 to see this. Nearly as excited as the young uns!

Thanks Mumsnet! (and hello fellow O2ers - looking forward to seeing you all)

fuzzpig Fri 14-Jun-13 20:06:04

Can't wait to be at the O2! All four of us are ridiculously excited!

clux73 Fri 14-Jun-13 20:09:29

I lost my tickets by not understanding I needed to print them straightaway. Feel very foolish and sad!

Manda472 Fri 14-Jun-13 20:33:37

We have an exciting weekend on the cards- DS makes his first holy communion at 2pm tomorrow and then Sunday we are going to the cinema!!!!
Can't wait, the first film was so funny smile
Thanks so much

fuzzywuzzy Fri 14-Jun-13 20:33:56

did you not get a copy via email?

Kneedeepindaisies Fri 14-Jun-13 20:34:17

How Clux? I haven't printed mine yet but I have the email ticket confirmation with the ticket I.d and amount of tickets so presume I'm ok to print that?

Wolfcub Fri 14-Jun-13 20:34:28

Dh and I are unbelievably excited about out trip to Manchester on Sunday. Ds still doesn't know and we are keeping it a surprise but we've just watched the Father's Day t trailer and we're going to watch the first film again tomorrow. I wish we had minion emoticons for this thread

LackaDAISYcal Fri 14-Jun-13 20:37:02

My children have never been so well behaved

The threat of being left at home is truly a great motivator grin

<though secretly I am more excited than they are>

Kneedeepindaisies Fri 14-Jun-13 20:37:21

Clux- if you log back into to showfilmfirst it has an option for view my tickets. My ones are there and I can print them.

LackaDAISYcal Fri 14-Jun-13 20:38:37

Oh, Clux, I haven't printed mine off yet either; our printer is on the blink so I was going to go to the library tomorrow morning to do it.

Are you saying that I won't be able to do that? confused <worried>

Hellohippo Fri 14-Jun-13 20:38:51

Am I the only one worrid what to wear for a place full of MNers, so far I am thinking crocs, leggings, crop top and waterfall cardigan.
Apart from that we're really looking forward to it <smiling minion>

LackaDAISYcal Fri 14-Jun-13 20:39:01

Ah, cross post! <phew>

LackaDAISYcal Fri 14-Jun-13 20:39:51

Yes tech, where are the minion smilies? At the very least we need one with a single eye!

EstoyAqui Fri 14-Jun-13 20:39:52

We are really excited. DD has school fete tomorrow then movie night with the original film followed by part 2 at the o2! It's going to be a great weekend. smile
