Keep that in mind when I tell you that I think Minions: The Rise of Gru is the worst kids’ movie I think I’ve ever seen. Now, before you tell me that I am not the target market. Yes, I know that. And my eight-year-old enjoyed it.
But even my 11-year-old thought it was stupid. And I got absolutely nothing out of it.
The last two flicks I’ve seen were The Bad Guys and Clifford the Big Red Dog. I had every intention of sifting through my emails and social media during both of them but I couldn’t take my eyes off the screen. They kept kids and parents enthralled in equal measure. But the latest Minions movie fails to entertain the latter.
And in today’s world of €12 - €15 cinema tickets with multiple movie streaming options that just isn’t good enough.
They are flogging a dead horse here. But the fact that Despicable Me 4 has just been announced means it is going nowhere fast. Spare yourselves the torment and money.
