Popcorn & Pics: minions #joyofmom


I wish you could see the big yellow circle on my kitchen calendar because I’ve been waiting – along with all the kiddos out there—for the family fun event movie of summer! Do I need to say their names? Hint: They’re bright yellow and have energy to spare! You don’t know what they’re talking about most of the time, but can’t get enough of listening to their jibber-jabber. In their first ever stand alone movie, Minions Stuart, Kevin and Bob are recruited by Scarlet Overkill (voiced by Sandra Bullock). She’s a super-villain who along with hubby Herb wants to take over the world. The Minions prove to our kiddos that it takes a village of yellow creatures to band together and save man and minion kind! My heart is with the Minions here!

Behind the Scenes: Sandra Bullock says that she had “a total blast” playing a bad girl. “That’s how bad I am in real life,” she joked. “Actually, it’s always fun to play the bad girl because it’s so meaty.” Is her preschooler son Louie excited to see his mom animated and ready to wreck some havoc. “He doesn’t know it’s me in the movie,” she says. “I want him to just enjoy the movie. I can tell him when he’s older.” {Don’t you love that!!}

Fun Fact: Moms, if you loved “Mad Men” then listen hard because Sandy’s hubby is played by none other than Jon Hamm. Other celeb voices in the movie include Michael Keaton, Allison Janney and Steve Carell. A lot of the big stars are here because they know that it’s the Minions world. We just live in it! And your kids will love living in it!

I know we’re going to be in a yellow mood this weekend with my favorite animated friends. Minions rule!
