Orientation Day

Orientation Day (2010)

** (out of 4)

One of the three minions shorts that were included as bonus features on the DESPICABLE ME release. This one here has three new minions being welcomed into the family but first they must watch an introduction video that shows what they'll be doing at Gru's company. Although this here runs just four-minutes, it's really not all that entertaining. There's not too many laughs to be found here and the story itself lacks the imagination that the other two shorts had. There are a couple nice smiles but that's pretty much it. The animation is good like you'd expect but there's just not much of a story here.
