The Minions return this weekend in a prequel to the successful (and better) Despicable Me movies.
There’s no doubting the cuteness and appeal of the minions, after all, that’s what earned the henchmen their cameo film. But unlike the Despicable entries, this flick is an undeniable mess. The pill-shaped creatures can’t carry a full-length feature…at least it didn’t for this dad. However, Minions isn’t an onion for dad (or mom) to peel away and expose. That onion is meant to activate your children’s tears as they roll around in uncontrollable laughter. It’s zany and loud and utterly chaotic. I wanted to remove my eyes and ears. If you can avoid it, save your sanity. If not, at least your kids will be wildly entertained for 90-minutes.
