The spin-off of the Despicable Me franchise boasts one pretty bizarre thing going forward: lead characters that speak in some weird hybrid of gibberish and gobbledygook. The minions themselves are cute enough and escape death on the regular with enough panache to be entertaining just on their own without Steve Carell's Gru getting in the way. Expect this to be the #1 grossing animated film of the year.
