One of the strangest, most pleasing aspects of all is how the series seems to understand single parents on a deep level. I’ve never tried to steal the moon, as Gru did in the first film, but I know what it’s like to have your daughter (adopted daughter in Gru’s case) threaten to crumple up in tears at the possibility that a scheduled “fairy princess” won’t arrive at her birthday party.
