If you believe only a thief can nab a thief, watch Despicable Me 2 online and see yourself validated.
When a theft occurs at a secret laboratory facility, the AVL or the Anti-Villain League believe that only Gru, who is an ex-supervillain, can get to the bottom of the matter. But Gru refuses the assignment primarily because he has changed his ways and heâ€™s a family man now. But an assistant and a pal of Gru claims to miss engaging in evil and so he is leaving to take up a new job offer.
Though reluctant at first, Gru eventually agrees to assist AVL by partnering with Lucy Wilde, an agent of the league. They pose as employees of a bakery in order to conduct a search on a mall. The owner of a Mexican restaurant is a prime suspect but when Lucy and Gru break in at night they come across nothing incriminating.
One of Gruâ€™s daughters, Agnes, reveals a desire to have a mum and hopes that Lucy and Gru will become romantically involved. Gru however points out to his daughter that the relationship between him and Lucy is purely work-related.
The next suspect that Lucy and Gru investigate is a merchant who deals in wigs. This happens despite Gru still harboring suspicions that Gru is guilty.
Later Gru goes on a date with Shannon who turns out to be a rude and a horrible person. When Lucy rescues him from the date, Gru realizes he has fallen in love with her. In Despicable Me 2 this is the worst possible time to start an â€˜office romanceâ€™ as there are villains hot on their heels!
