You think you can sing like that? In front of an audience?
I don't know. But I'd like to try.
Good. Because I want to see it.

In the Illumination Entertainment logo, 4 Minions are singing the word "Illumination". The last one, Bob, sings the 'tion' part so long and loud, the 'MIN' and 'ION' parts short out. After realizing what he has done, he says "Oops" See more »
Forget the book version reviews, they like their own voice.
I was very surprised at this movie. The depth of the character development for animated people/animal things. The number of characters was complex but complimentary. The thorough plot and plot twists. And then the music, singing. Super heavyweight Jen Hudson, pros like Reese Witherspoon, Tori, Jennifer Saunders, John Reilly. The singing built up throughout. And shocker to me Scarlett Johansonn was awesome. Its got fart jokes, jiggly pig bellies, sad family tales and a really super ending.
Pay your dues, have no expectations, sit and enjoy. Sing my arse, they Jennifer Hudson'ed this flick. Awesome !!
