Minions - 2015

Movie Info

Rating: PG

Age-appropriateness: The notion of “evil” is primary to the plot. Evil deeds are seen as positive, in a comedic sense. Immature, slapstick comedy. Cartoonish violence.

Overview: Minions Stuart, Kevin, and Bob are recruited by Scarlet Overkill, a supervillain who, alongside her inventor husband Herb, hatches a plot to take over the world. With plenty of slapstick comedy, the minions try to find a villain to follow. The plot glorifies crime/sinful behavior, which raises the great conversation topic of sin/evil. This movie is a gateway to great discussion like: “what makes us do bad things?”, “what is true evil?”, and “what’s the result of our sin?”. Plenty of options to point to the gospel!

Themes:  evil, silliness, following authority, loyalty, sin, forgiveness, friendship, sacrifice, leadership
