Trivia

The fire hydrant in London is a red American styled one. In fact all fire hydrants in the UK are under the pavement covered by yellow drain covers marked with a 'H'. Additionally there is always a yellow sign with a large black 'H' on a wall nearby so the location is easily identified. See more »

Goofs

As the three minions land in New York, you can briefly see S.S. France probably docked at Pier 88 (official French Line pier at the time). Her funnel colors were red with black tops until 1979, as she was sold to Norwegian Caribbean Line and became S.S. Norway (www.classicliners.net/SSNORWAY.html). See more »

A treat for the whole family!
11 July 2015 | by iRoswellSee all my reviews

My wife and I went to see this, we loved both Despicable Me's, and had high hopes for the movie. Thankfully, while it wasn't as good as either Despicable Me's, it was a good movie. It is very kid oriented, duh, so don't go thinking you're going to get an in-depth plot line. The minions are corny and their antics are as slapstick as they are in Despicable Me. While you would think that it would be difficult to relate to, due to them not speaking English, it's not a problem. They did a great job at making everything understandable through context, even for a small child. The biggest issue I had was in the form of Scarlet Overkill. I didn't care for the angle they chose to go with her. I'll leave it at that so I don't include any spoilers. If you have small children, they will love every minute of this movie. Minions is simple, fun, and safe for anyone!!!
