my 4 and 5 year olds loved it.
it's was cute and the plot was cute but it wasn't the best movie ever.
Best yet, there’s a mid-film bedtime story, made to look like stop-motion, that’ll take your breath away.
By far, the highlight of Minions is hearing The Beatles’ “Got To Get You Into My Life” over the closing credits — the first time I think I’ve ever heard it used in a movie. Otherwise, the prequel to “Despicable Me” is like trying to form a rock band out of three Ringos.
Minions has idiosyncratic roots, but it’s a franchise play all the way. Finally, even 5-year-olds have their own movie that mechanically cashes in on something they loved when they were younger.
