They remind me of Twinkies. I hope that isn’t an insult. Health choices aside, Twinkies were a favorite treat when I was a kid. They tasted great, smelled great, never got wasted and were like a reward for finishing my bag lunch.
Now, add eyes or eye, inject a massive amount of personality, add a generous dose of mischievousness and the collection of movie screen characters is born. Bib overalls give them a personality that is lovable. Goggles over a pair or cyclops eye is adorable.
Feed in a sound track for their fast talking completely non-understandable dialogue but let interpretive gestures and episode contexts give meaning then something magical happens. I can’t forget the laughing. When the minions chuckle, I chuckle with them.
Despicable Me movies add charm to this supporting cast of wonderful movie background supporting characters. I do love it when they laugh. Smiling is a natural reaction.
There have been an abundance of trailers for the Minion Movie. But, it is one thing to be a hit as a supporting actor or cast. It is totally another thing to be the star.
Most animated movies leave a lot to be desired. Even when the highly appealing trio of Bob, Kevin and Stuart lead the way. Maybe the critics will win me over this time. They are not kind about the movie.
For the time being I will be content to have snuggled up to the trio of Minions during one their promotional trailers. I got down to their level and could only smile. You must be a Minion fan too, right? Are you going to see the movie?
