Fun and entertaining
2 April 2015 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

This short film is about the minions and the children rushing to create a massive makeover for their home, in time for a social worker's inspection to see if their home is suitable for children.

"Home Makeover" is only four minutes long if you exclude the credits, but it manages to squeeze a lot in because of the quick paced plot. How the home is so unsuitable for children is quite entertaining to watch. For example, there are axes, needles and even a coffin! The minions work hard to make the home warm and welcoming, and concealing the dangerous items like pros.

I enjoyed "Home Makeover" because it is pure fantasy. The home is a fantasy, while the extreme makeover is also fantastical. It provides a temporary escape for life's troubles.
