Those little yellow guys that we met and fell in love with in the Despicable Me films are back! And, in a movie all about them! Minions Movie is full of fun, giggles, E-eevil plots, musical grooves, and, of course, bananas!
They land in New York City and we see that it's now 1968 and the city is rockin'! The soundtrack in this movie is part of the overall fun. If I wasn't busy laughing at the hilarious fowl ups and expressions of Kevin, Stuart, and Bob, I was busy dancing in my seat to all the groovy tunes from 1968. You had all the main players of the time like The Who, Beatles, and The Stones, plus more including a fun Minions version of The Monkees' song ♪Hey hey we're the minions♪.
Minions has something for all ages from that adult humor that kids won't understand to the adorable antics and personal language of the minions. It's not as good as Despicable Me, and it's not earth shattering Oscar winning drama, but it is a fun, funny prequel that ties in nicely to the rest of the Despicable Me movies.
No spoilers here, but make sure to stay after the credits for a fun musical number with the entire cast!
Plus, IT'S MINIONS! BANANAS! SO CUTE I JUST WANT TO SQUEEZE THEM SQUEEEE!
Minions Movie is in theaters everywhere July 10.
Disclosure: I attended a free screening of this movie for the purposes of this review.
