Minions Demonstrates How Slapstick Can Actually Reinforce The Status QuoCharlie Jane Anders7/10/15 11:00am1619EditPromoteDismissUndismissHideGo to permalinkMinions is kind of a critic-proof movie. You pretty much already know what you’re getting from this film: one and a half hours of those walking twinkies from the Despicable Me Movies. Amusing antics! Nonsensical babble! Contrived situations! It feels like a direct-to-DVD movie, but it’ll make a billion dollars.
