Ever since the dawn of time, the Minions have lived to serve the most despicable of masters. From the T-Rex to Napoleon, the easily distracted tribe has helped the biggest and the baddest of villains.

They'll earn a shot to work for a new boss, the world's first female supervillain, and try to save all of Minionkind from annihilation. Written by Universal Pictures

Trivia

When the trio first arrive at Scarlet Overkill's castle, one makes fun of the romance by turning his back and wrapping his hands around his sides so it appears he is kissing someone. This is a nod to the "fake-out make-out" trick used by James Bond in Diamonds Are Forever (1971). See more »

Goofs

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. See more »

Quotes

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. See more »

Hilarious!
11 July 2015 | by soodratikSee all my reviews

Having read bad reviews I went with low expectations. But as the movie started my laughter overshadowed my expectations.

Kevin, Stuart and Bob go on a journey to find a super villain to be their tribe's boss.

Yes, the story was predictable and it may not have been as good as Despicable me 1 and 2 but to be honest it really didn't matter. It was amazingly funny and there was not a single moment in which I got bored. Also the jokes were not at all kiddish and would make a person of any age laugh. 3D was also pretty good.

So i would recommend you to leave the serious part of your brain at your house and watch this hilarious and light hearted movie of the adorable minions.

P.S If you haven't watched the trailer, don't.You will enjoy the movie much more.
