Vying for the title of World's Greatest Villain, Gru (voiced by Steve Carell) - along with his hilarious crew of mischievous minions - plots to pull off the craziest crime of the century: steal the moon! But when Gru enlists the help of three little girls, they see something in him nobody else has ever seen: the perfect dad.
I always knew I wanted to see this since I saw the trailer when the one yellow thing punched the other yellow thing. I was sold. I didn’t know much else about it, other than I heard Steve Carrell talking about it on a radio show once.
|00:00:43 - Already I want a minion of my own and the film hasn’t even started yet.|
|00:01:44 - Julie Andrews!|
|00:03:19 - Ooh, who is going to check out the pyramids to make sure they’re not inflatable?|
|00:04:04 - Hehehe, I love him.|
|00:05:34 - Panda rug! Now I have to not like him.|
|00:09:06 - I like the idea of having a screaming crowd ready to cheer you up whenever you want.|
|00:13:46 - That youngest kid is just like Boo.|
|00:14:37 - That’s my kind of parallel parking!|
|**00:19:37 **- Tiny elephant!!|
|**00:22:08 **- Star Wars should have had air fight sequences like that.|
|**00:23:33 **- He’s playing a Wii. Evil people play Wii’s too.|
|**00:24:12 **- Fists coming out of the wall, it’s just like Total Wipeout.|
|**00:25:43 **- “Liiightbulbbb.” I’m going to be saying that.|
|**00:29:15 **- “How do I remove it? Is there a command?” Sadly not with kiddies.|
|**00:32:54 **- “Somebody broke that.” I’m going to be using that too!|
|**00:36:30 **- Minions on the ceiling! Blatantly stolen from the Willy Wonka movie though.|
|**00:37:11 **- The oldest girl is voiced by the girl from Drake and Josh, right?|
|00:39:10 - Woah, I’d stop drinking Coke if it had that effect!|
|**00:46:53 **- They made the minion into a glow stick!|
|**00:50:33 **- “Look at that fluffy unicorn! It’s so fluffy I want to die!”|
|**00:52:44 **- “It’s so fluffy!!”|
|**00:54:57 **- Just had to explain the concept of Stuffed Crust to Mr C.|
|**00:57:54 **- Minions have resumés!|
|**01:02:47 **- “Pretty please?” “The physical appearance of the please makes no difference.”|
|**01:06:13 **- Russell Brand is pretty good in this. Not a fan of his normally.|
|**01:12:17 - Great recall on the gravity minion. I’d forgotten!|
|****01:12:48 **- They have a minion mission control.|
|01:14:42 - That bit was in the trailer and still it was funny.|
|**01:21:35 **- How many times can one person be crushed by the moon before they give up?|
|**01:29:46 - Woot! Bonus points for extra stuff during the credits.|
Another film that made us laugh a significant amount! We were both in need of something simple and amusing, and this was both of those. I would say it doesn’t have the multi-layer elements that make a kids film really something special, but if you just want to zone out in front of the TV for 90 minutes, it’s perfect.
I don’t want to make a habit out of putting clips into these posts, but you have to watch this to the end. It’s SO fluffy!
