| Another disappointed side-story
1. People in the theater laughed a lot, like in every scene, I did laugh too but 70% were fake 'cause I don't want to be a poker-face person. I'd suggest this one for children and families, personally it's not good enough for my taste (animated films with serious meanings or action movie sequels). 2. Don't have much things to expect, kinda let down compares to the two Despicable Me movies (yup, just like the Penguins of Madagascar one). 3. The content was fair, nothing special, I love the character models and the graphics though (Scarlet Overkill is so gorgeous!) 4. "Are the Minions immortal?" That was my question so far. 5. However,I did see your effort, Universal. I look forward to seeing your better products.

Did You Know?


Before Scarlet's (Sandra Bullock) test starts for new henchman, you can see Richard Nixon get pushed by the wrestler villain at Villain Con.


Narrator: Minions. Minions have been on this planet far longer than we have. They go by many names. Dave, Carl, Paul, Mike- Oh, that one is Norbert. He's an idiot. They're all different, but all share the same goal:... To serve the most despicable master thru...


About 35 minutes into the film, one of Jimi Hendrix's guitars is supposedly shown. Jimi was left-handed, but he played a right-handed guitar re-strung for left-handed play because that stringing created a unique sound due to the angling of the pickups with relation to the distance from the terminus of the string. While the head of the guitar is never shown so we can see whether it is right- or left-handed, the mounting point for the shoulder strap is, and it denotes a right-handed guitar, as expected. However, the guitar is strung for right-handed play as well; it should have been strung for left-handed play. That, and the design of the guitar suggests a slightly stylized fictional version of a Squier, rather than a model he actually played.

Crazy Credits

There are various jokes with the Minions as the end-credits initially scroll, followed by an extended post-credits sequence in which Kevin, Stuart and Bob perform a version of The Beatles song "Revolution" and most of the characters from the movie re-appear.
