After the enormous success of ‘Despicable Me’ (2010) with Gru and his yellow pill-shaped minions who gave us some slapstick humor, and later the sequel ‘Despicable Me 2’ (2013), we now find ourselves with a film entirely devoted to these lovable creatures that create a riot in their very own film titled ‘Minions’ (2015). Their strange language with a smattering of English thrown in at times is difficult to understand, but it’s really charming.

Why an entire movie on them some may ask? To some, the Minions are so darn cute, but to others, they might be irritating. But kids love these little rascals and so do we.  For the adults, there’s some retro music thrown in this flick from The Doors, The Beatles, Rolling Stones, The Who, The Kinks, Van Halen and  even The Monkees. Don’t miss the Minions’ take on the Universal Studios theme song at the start of the film. This is really funny, believe me.

With help from a narrator (Geoffrey Rush) we learn that after serving numerous masters, the Minions are driven into isolation and decide to start a new life in a massive cave in the Artic, but who will lead the flock ahead. After a rigourous search among themselves as to who would take on the task to find a new leader, Kevin, Stuart, and Bob, (Pierre Coffin, who voices all the Minions and also co-directs) are recruited.

The Minions go off on their voyage to Villain-Con, a gathering of the most evil criminals in the world. There, they impress Scarlett Overkill (Bullock), a super-villain who aims to use the Minions to enact her evil schemes. Scarlett wants the Minions to steal Queen Elizabeth II's crown so she can rule England. She offers them a reward for it, but if they fail, they face death. The three heroes must face a big task to save their tribe from disaster.

As a Bonus Feature you only have a rendition of Jingle Bells….. Minion style.
