Bilingual is Better

Despicable Me just hit the stores in time for the last days of Holiday shopping, which is usually when you’ll see me frantically getting it all done!

My girl didn’t get to watch this one in theaters, but was definitely aware of the yellow “things,” which now we know are called Minions, that were plastered all over billboards, buses and walls in our city.  So, as soon as she saw the Blu-ray/DVD combo pack cover she wanted me to put it on to have an impromptu movie night.  We had a great time laughing at the silly minions as they tried to find a unicorn for Agnes, the youngest of the three orphan girls, after Gru, the Villain and their Master, had pulverized hers.

Even the villain Gru had us laughing at his attempts to steal the moon. Wasn’t easy to explain to my daughter why you really couldn’t steal la luna, as hard as you tried.

As we do with all DVDs that allow us to, we watched this one with the Spanish option.  I tried to get you a clip of the movie in Spanish to watch with your kids, but I found something better. This clip features one of Agnes’ cutest moments. If you click on one of the flags on the top of the screen it will repeat the scene in the corresponding language. Very fun for our multilingual kids to explore!
