Puppy: Don't judge me!
21 June 2018 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

I'm not ashamed to admit I like Minions, I've enjoyed all the Despicable Me films and am now indulging myself in the Minions shorts which thus far have been very hit and miss.

This 4 minute Minion tale tells the story of a Minion who wants a puppy, when an alien comes down to earth he considers it a suitable alternative.

Clearly with influence from Batteries Not Included (1987) this is a sweet heartfelt little tale that about half way through I figured I wouldn't like as I saw the finale being sad. Thankfully it's not, it ends on a high note and even features Gru himself.

Very enjoyable fun little effort and I wish all the Minion content was this good.

Oh and I'm 37yrs old and DON'T JUDGE ME!

The Good:

Sweet story

Looks good

The Bad:

Tugs on that particular heart string I don't like tugged

Things I Learnt From This Short:

I can't promise I wouldn't do deeply inappropriate things with that englarging ray
