"Minions" — A review for tea lovers!
Last week, Alex and I got to enjoy a fun visit with the Georgia grandkids, Bella and Owen, and after lunch in downtown Newnan, we took them to see the new "Minions" movie. Now I didn't know much about Minions, and still don't, except that A) they are odd-looking little yellow creatures and B) Bella and Owen like them. Item B was all I needed to go see the movie, but I was delighted to learn that one of the main characters was voiced by Sandra Bullock and that the Minions got to take a trip to England as part of the plot!
The gist of the story is this: The Minions hook up with bad gal Scarlet Overkill, voiced by Bullock, who covets the Queen's crown. She's always wanted it, and she intends for the Minions to help her get it. As you might expect from anything featuring England, there are lots of fun shots of Buckingham Palace and other popular sites, and I was amused at how many scenes ended up having a teapot or teacup in them. There's even a brief glimpse into a tea room that made me wish I were a Minion! So if any of you have Minions-loving grandchildren, nieces, nephews, or other little ones in your life, join them when they go see "Minions."
