I was watching the trailer for the upcoming prequel to Despicable Me, Minions the other night, and I was left with my mouth hanging open in shock. What had me in such a tizzy, you ask? Well, it was a couple things, but mostly it was the end shot of one of the cute little yellow guys in a red thong with his butt hanging out. WHAT!!!?.... HOW!!!??..... WHY!!??? is this even a thing? Seriously, Why? I LOVE the Despicable Me movies and the Minions, and eventhough I had a wee bit of problem with one of the minions in a French maid's costume in one of the earlier movies, it was no where near as eyebrow raising as the red thong. There is also a scene with one of them in hot tub with 2 yellow fire hydrants that appear to be suggest naked women. Come on is it really necessary to have these types of images in a movie that is so heavily marketed towards children? I wondered if I was being overly sensitive, so I showed my sons. They range in age from 25 to 10. They all felt the same way I did. That having the cute, lovable minion in a thong showing his butt was inappropriate. I was instantly sad too, because I really wanted to take my two youngest sons to see the movie because we are HUGE fans. Now I am not so sure I will. I might, but I am not sure, yet. Now, before any of you get all mad and make rude comments or think I am sheltering my children from the world blah, blah, blah, calm down. If my sons still want to go see the movie, I will take them. One, because they are old enough to understand that adults sometimes put weird, unnecessary stuff in "kid's" movies and two, because we openly discuss things that we feel are inappropriate in movies and on television. Sometimes we disagree. But not this time. I am sure we will laugh our heads off at the movie, as we have done at the previous 2. However, I will wince every time something adult comes across the screen and feel sad that movie makers feel this is cute. Have you seen the trailer I am talking about? Well, watch it below and tell me what you think.
