We accosted some of the staff in McDonalds in the hope that they would have some Minions left for the Happy Meals, but no – its Smurfs week. Boo. We had a look on eBay when we got home, and the McDonalds Minions are going for anything up to £30! So no minions for us.
The film was really good, it might even be better than the original, but I don’t want to give too much away. We went knowing literally nothing about the plot, and giggled all the way through the film. Kristen Wiig’s character, Lucy, adds just the right amount of ditz, and the little minions have been stepped up for this film, which is never a bad thing. Pharrell was in charge of the soundtrack this time around too, and the new theme song, Happy, really catches the feel of the film. I want to go and see it again!!
