Minions Stuart, Kevin and Bob are recruited by Scarlett Overkill, a super-villain who, alongside her inventor husband Herb, hatches a plot to take over the world.

This is one movie where almost every good scene is in the trailers.

The movie follows the minions from the beginnings of time in their quest to serve the biggest villain of all time.  After they are banished by one of their masters, the minions start to despair.

Bob, Kevin and Stuart set out to find a new master for the minions.

Their hi-jinks and shenanigans are typical of the Minions.

Some highlights of the movie come from the minions using Pembroke Welsh Corgis as polo mounts. Parents please don’t let your children do this at home.


Yes, the dogs are a real breed. One I am pleased to be owned by. Below is a picture of my corgi Leia supervising while I mop the tile floor.


The Pembroke Welsh Corgi is traditionally a bob-tailed breed either through breeding or tail docking. In the United States, you will see tailless corgwyn, abroad where docking is banned for non-working animals you will find corgwyn with their tails as in the movie Minions.

Now before you rush out to get a corgi, please make sure to educate yourself.  Below is a link that will give you a good insight as to what it means to be owned by a corgi.
So you think you want a corgi?

I loved Minions, and although there is quite a bit of adult humor, it is a movie that kids will love. I give it a 4.5 star rating.

four and a half stars
