Now that I think about it, this actually does make a lot of sense. Not only were
the pro-family themes of Despicable Me quite Mormon-y, but so were the very
STRONG religious themes of Horton Hears a Who!, which went probably far beyond
what Dr. Seuss ever intended.
Loved all of their movies! Wonderful to see that solid, fun, value-oriented
movies ARE successful, and are also a great deal of fun.Keep it
Thrilled to see Mormons making it as screenwriters in Hollywood. That said,I
will never be able to forgive them for "Santa Clause 2." Ugh!
Loved all those movies. Always left the theater with a good feeling...now I know
why! Keep up the good work!
I saw Despicable Me 2 last week in Australia. I have never laughed so much in
all my life and had such a wonderful time. I cried a bit at the end too, but
the grand finale was just so awesome! I won't spoil it for those who
haven't seen it, but I await with eager anticipation for the Minion Movie
which has been hinted of for ages - the end credits will give you a clue! Stay
till the very end and leave the cinema with a smile on your face!! I think it is
great that LDS guys have made in big in Hollywood. I can't think of anyone
who didn't like this movie! Congrats guys - Loved it!
OK, I loved Despicable Me and am anxious to see part 2. But claiming to not be
"preachy" and then putting out "The Lorax"? That was one of the
most over-the-top environmental soap boxes ever produced on stage, screen, book
or speech: A virtual steam-roller of preachiness over a misguided principle.
Someone might be afraid to even trim their trees or weed the garden after that
one. But other than that, keep up the good work. Glad to see some
influence for good in Hollywood. They may be all alone in that field. I love the trailer when a minion says "bottom". Hilarious.
Yeah, because even in Hollywood, the Mormons have the copyright, patent, and
monopoly on all things good, virtuous, "family-values-y", and the
like...Give me a break.
At "The Scientist"...so How on earth did you get so cynical? Why come
to an LDS newspaper if you all you plan on doing is being sarcastic toward us?
How many other LDS movie writers are there in Hollywood, and how many of the
"others" write Good Family movies? None, that's how many.
OK, I just saw this movie on a Premier night tonight and I have to say that this
is one of the best movies I have seen in years! It is touching, very funny and
profound. It is better than the first one and is one of the few movies that I
will buy. Thank you for creating such a great movie! My whole body hurts because
of laughing so hard. Poor "Lone Ranger" will get trounced
this weekend by a group of minions that deserve to be seen. Go see this movie
whether you have kids, grandkids or not. Be prepared to laugh your brains out
and cry till it hurts.
I absolutely loved Despicable Me2! I loved the first and I loved the second even
