Minions is a 2015 American computer-animated comedy film, serving as a spin-off/prequel to the Despicable Me franchise. Produced by Illumination Entertainment for Universal Pictures, it was directed by Pierre Coffin and Kyle Balda, written by Brian Lynch, and produced by Chris Meledandri and Janet Healy. The film stars the voices of Coffin (as the Minions, including: Kevin, Stuart and Bob), Sandra Bullock, Jon Hamm, Michael Keaton, Allison Janney, Steve Coogan and Jennifer Saunders with the narration provided by Geoffrey Rush. It was first foreshadowed in the end credits of Despicable Me 2 (2013), where Kevin, Stuart and Bob, three of the Minions, are seen auditioning for the film. Minions had its premiere on June 11, 2015, in Leicester Square, London, and went into general release in the United States on July 10, 2015. Critical response was mixed: some critics praised the comedic aspects of the film and the performances of Bullock and Hamm, while also felt that the title characters were not able to carry the film on their own, and that the villains were flatly characterized. The film has grossed over $1.1 billion worldwide (outgrossing each of the Despicable Me films), making it the thirteenth highest-grossing film of all time, the second highest-grossing animated film and the highest-grossing non-Disney animated film. A sequel is scheduled to be released on July 3, 2020

Hervard: In case anyone's wondering, that is a sentence I made up using the eight "exception" words to the "i before e except after c" rule - words with a long "e" sound, that is. I learned all of this in English class in my junior year in HS.

J.T.: Frickin' English...here are a couple mind-blowing sentences, in that they are grammatically correct: "All the faith he had had had had no effect on the outcome of his life" or "The complex houses married and single soldiers and their families."
