Orientation Day: Fun little short
25 June 2018 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

Orientation Day is one of many Minions shorts and is certainly one of the better ones.

It tells the story of 3 minions watching their orientation video and setting off for their very first assignment. Being that it's minions however things don't go to plan.

The minions shorts have been hit and miss but most at least hold the Despicable Me charm and it's demonstrated here.

Hardly groundbreaking and very much limited by its short runtime but still a lot of fun for what it is.

The Good:

Looks and sounds great

Minion charm

The Bad:

Nothing really

Things I Learnt From This Short:

More companies need orientation videos like that!
