Not For Minors...or really anyone else.
A strong pagan worldview starting with their evolution into what they are today. Very violent and depicting crime as a good thing.
There are some elements of cross-dressing with homosexual views thrown in the mix. I don't see why a kids cartoon needs that in there. Perhaps there is some agenda someone is trying to press forward.
Slapstick violence and very violent death is portrayed. I realize this is a cartoon, but that is what sticks in the minds of children. Violence is shown as something fun. Maybe we can all teach them to torture cats next?
Some cartoon characters pictured from behind wear thongs. It's just a cartoon...what's the problem? Fritz the Cat was a cartoon also.
Just remember that if you continually introduce something to people, soon it becomes OK. Look at the headlines in today's paper for any more clarification, if needed.

Quite a let down after the first 2 movies. Minions are great side characters but a story line is missing. Gru, Dr. Nefario, the girls are missing. Even Lucy helped give it interest.

A quite fun movie which tells the origin of the pill-like creatures and how they connect themselves with Gru. The group of minions travel the world looking for a bad person to serve him or her. This is a good thing that the minions aren't all alike or they were be given nag tags to tell them apart. I like their language. I'm glad they add any subtittles to the movie. I love their languafge so much that I couldn't care what they said. In the movie, three of the minions went to New York to find a master. They ended up at a Villain convinction in Orlando. it's like Comic Con for bad guys. While there, they hooked up with a villianess name Scarlett Overkill (I love that name) voice by Sandra Bullock. Bullock did a great job of voicing Overkill, a crediable villain who is not only pure evil, but beautiful. She took them to England where she wanted to steal the crown of Queen Elizabeth, but things got out of hand, puttinbg the three minions in danger. I like thge movie, not as good as the last two Despicable me movies, but I found plenty of stuff that I like. One thing I like is the music score which caputre the mood of the world. Remember, the movie took place in 1968. Before, going to the screening, I was worried that the movie would lost ti's way without Gru, but that was not the case. The minions are find without him. It's a joy of watching them back on the big screen again. Please stay after the credits as the cast sang, "Revolution.": It's going to be a blast.

Lackluster attempt at a story. Animation was not quality work. I went in liking the little yellow guys and there was nothing there to really like. The best parts were in the previews.

Moderately entertaining. Kids liked it. I fell asleep.

This movie was a lot of fun even though it was narrated and the minions only spoke a few words of English and a few more of Spanish along with their own "minion talk". Baby Boomers, like me, may get more out of this movie than kids or the younger folks though because of the songs that are played and the many 1960's references. It seems to have been made more for adults than children (just like Bugs Bunny was) because of the shoot em up violence and the 60's theme.
