It’s no surprise that the Minions got their own movie, writes Mekado Murphy in the NYT:

They’re little; they’re yellow; they’re different; and they’re box-office superstars. Therefore, it seemed inevitable that the Minions—those capsule-shaped, goggle-wearing, overall-clad lozenges that were supporting characters to the supervillain, Gru, in two “Despicable Me” movies—might get their own feature.
