Last Saturday the kids and I trained into the city for the preview of the movie Minions. Yes, it was my anniversary. Yes, we left The Husband at home. What can I say, I love me some Minions.
We first fell in love when we saw the first Despicable Me movie. Who didn’t love the little, yellow, gibberish-speaking, banana-eating, mischief makers? Our family fell hook line and sinker, so we have been waiting months to find out the story of how the Minions came to be.
This time, they are the stars of the movie and you find out all about how they got to be Gru’s henchmen all those years ago. We all loved the movie for its simple, silly, summer fun. The actors that lend their voices are fantastic. Scarlett Overkill, the villian, is Sandra Bullock and her husband Herb is Jon Hamm. Really, what more could you ask for? How about Michael Keaton, Allison Janney, and even Geoffrey Rush as the narrator? Not only are the Minions adorable and hysterical, they bring a star studded cast to the screen as well.
Minions hits theaters in RealD and IMAX July 10th. Why not go back to where it all began this summer? I promise, the whole family will love the ride.
