Don't forget to use the picture of you in a red wig when you message him. :wink:

Thanks for sharing VHM. Like others have said, I'll be seeing it with the family even though it doesn't sound like it will be a "Jemaine movie." :family: I am disappointed that Jemaine isn't a discernable character in the movie. I have been looking forward to it for so long. :popcorn: But at least we have Dinner for Schmucks next week. :woohoo: As a sidebar, IHOP is promoting Despicable Me heavily. The minions have taken over the kids menu. IHOP even have cinna-minion rolls. :bounce: For people not familiar with IHOP, it stands for the International House of Pancakes. Not usually involved in movie promotions to my knowledge.

Red - ;) Sadly, even with the fake red hair I got no reply. Apparently Jemaine doesn't want to talk about it. At least to me. ;)

Deirdre - It is a bit disappointing but honestly even if they HAD relied heavily on him, his voice is pretty much unrecognizeable anyway and if I had to choose, I'd much rather see him as he appears in Dinner For Schmucks. :waggle: :nod: :drool: :thud: :thumb: *humina* :lol:

I remember when it actually used to be called International House of Pancakes. It's annoying to me when companies take the colloquial abbreviations people use for their names and make it their actual name. :roll: Then again maybe I just need to get a life, lol. Anyway yeah, they don't usually do movie tie-ins with IHOP. I thought that was kind of weird too.

This sort of explains why we won't recognize his voice. It's from an interview on Screen Crave in October 2009.

"[Laughs] Tim? I don’t know where Tim comes from, maybe it is called Tim. That must be on IMDB. It’s actually more than one character, he’s a clone, so they all kind of have the same voice. There are many characters that are all exactly the same, and I do an alien accent in an undefinable language."

An alien accent in a non-existent language, and a cartoon image = not Jemaine. Still, I hope they paid him lots and lots of money. :D

I saw this, it was silly, delightful fun. I couldn't really tell who Jerry the Minion was, but they were all hilarious and extremely cute. And they all had their own personalities! The story had some predictable elements, but also some nice surprises. It looked great in 2D, Robert Ebert recomends seeing it in that, and since no movie since "How to Train Your Dragon" really warranted it, IME, I agree with him and save your extra $5.

It's more Warner Brothers hammer on the head humor, but it was extremely enjoyable. And Steve Carell is just fantastic voicing Gru, the supervillian.

Yeah, we saw it today too. Not in 3D though, and quite frankly it did not need it. The rollercoaster scene would have made me queezy.

"How to Train Your Dragon" was a really good movie. I think hubby and I liked it more than the kids did.

I can't wait to get back home and see DM. :waiting:

Really? The kids were squealing all through the movie at the showing I was at - from teens to tots.

Here's a Despicable Me minion maker:

MM I really really liked it. I too was saying that it did not need to be seen in 3D. It was thoroughly gigglitious! :lol:

Yep, that scene was a little hard to take in 3D. :sick: There were only a couple of scenes where I even noticed that it was 3D, so it really wasn't necessary.

I think he was the one who got shrunken. Either that or he was the one who carried the shrunken minion around, because when the little guy popped back up to normal size one of them shouted "Jerry!". But really I loved them all, they were so adorable.

I loved those two minions so much! The tea party where they both have a cup!
