Let me preface this by saying that I absolutely hate the Minions. However, I can basically guarantee that any young child will absolutely love Minions and the Minions.

These adorable, not-too-bright, yellow creatures from Despicable Me spend the movie explaining how they went from villain to villain until they ended up with their current master, Gru. With a new Despicable Me coming out in 2017, your kids may want to watch this movie just to prepare themselves for seeing the Minions in the next movie.

And, if you do choose to watch this movie, expect to never want to hear the word “banana” again.
