As summer vacation grows to a close, don't miss the chance to chance to see the Minions in their very own movie, it is this summer's must see for the whole family.
"Family films" tend to be entertaining for the children, but the adults generally leave the theater with sticky shoes feeling like they have just wasted an hour and a half of their lives, but Minions will keep everyone in your group entertained from start to finish. The film is funny, well written and packed with A-list names that everyone is sure to recognize. I laughed at many of the same scenes as my 5-year-old nephew, there are also a few moments of adult humor thrown in to make it a bit more entertaining for the adults, but don't worry, it is not over-the-top raunchy and not easily picked up upon by the kids.
Some of the A-list celebs that can be heard in the film include Sandra Bullock (Scarlett Overkill), Jon Hamm (Herb Overkill), Michael Keaton (Walter Nelson), Allison Janney (Madge Nelson) and of course, Steve Carell as young Gru. Having familiar voices emanating from most of the characters made the film that much better. Sandra Bullock voices the perfect villain.
The three Minions, Kevin, Stuart and Bob that make up the main focus of the film are adorable, funny and just fun to watch. Bob is by far the one that was graced with the most entertaining scenes of the film. He is small, immature and always finding trouble. Of course the dialogue can or the most part only be assumed as funny, but just like the other Despicable Me films, there are some words that can be made out. The Minions have not lost their love of bananas, and they are incorporated into a few funny scenes.
This Minioncentric film is by far way more entertaining than the previous Despicable Me films. I highly recommend seeing the film in 3D. The vivid colors and brilliant animation deserve to be seen in their full glory.
Minions Stuart, Kevin and Bob are recruited by Scarlet Overkill, a super-villain who, alongside her inventor husband Herb, hatches a plot to take over the world.
