Can there really be too much of a cute thing? I’m talking about the minions ”” those tiny, yellow, goggle-eyed creatures who served the villainous Gru (indelibly voiced by Steve Carell) in two Despicable Me blockbusters. It’s not whether this prequel can mint money; that’s a given. The questions is: Can the minions carry a movie all by their mischievous mini-selves?
