We so went to see this movie in theaters!  We loaded up the boys and meant a few friends at the theater.  Ordered some popcorn a large soda and of course some candy.  Got to our seats, watched the before movies previews and then the movie started.
Within the first 3 minutes we were laughing and it didn't stop until the end of the movie!  You have to realize we were between the ages 4-35 and I can safely say each of laughed several times.
The Minions are cute, funny and just all around silly.  
Whenever I buy bananas in my house both my boys always say MMMM Banana 
And the movie is finally going to be available on Blu-Ray and DVD!  Just in time for the holidays.
Be jealous people I so got an early copy for review :)  I think we watched it three times at this point!

The breakout stars the world fell in love with in Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment’s Despicable Me global film franchise headline their own movie for the first time in Minions, available on Digital HDNovember 24, 2015, and on Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD and On Demand on December 8, 2015 from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. A much anticipated prequel to the unprecedented worldwide blockbusters Despicable Me and the beloved sequel Despicable Me 2, Minions is an immensely entertaining film for all audiences called “inventive and hilarious” by Julian Roman, Movieweb.com.  The Blu-ray.  Combo Pack and Digital HD also come with three all-new mini-movies and even moreMinions everyone will want to watch again and again especially during the busy holiday travel season.

The story of Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment’s Minions begins at the dawn of time. Starting as single-celled yellow organisms, Minions evolve through the ages, perpetually serving the most despicable of masters.  Continuously unsuccessful at keeping these masters—from T. rex to Napoleon—the Minions find themselves without someone to serve and fall into a deep depression. But one Minion named Kevin has a plan, and he—alongside teenage rebel Stuart and lovable little Bob—ventures out into the world to find a new evil boss for his brethren to follow. The trio embark upon a thrilling journey that ultimately leads them to their next potential master, Scarlet Overkill (Academy Award-winner Sandra Bullock), the world’s first-ever female super-villain.  They travel from frigid Antarctica to 1960s New York City, ending in ‘mod’ London, where they must face their biggest challenge to date: saving all of Minionkind...from annihilation.


So even though we seen this in theaters it was def. one we wanted in our personal collections and the extra mini movies so made it worth it!    My boys just can get enough of these little yellow guys, so getting to see them again these minis were a huge hit with them!
