You could slap a three-star review on Despicable Me 2 and most people wouldn't complain, but whether you enjoy it or not depends entirely on two things: how much you enjoy the slapstick comedy of the minions, and how much schmaltz you can tolerate. The only way to give it a fair review is via the medium of chart.
Warning: your level of schmaltz tolerance would have to border on insane for this to get anywhere near five stars.
