I'm 50 years old and went to this movie with my 14 year old and 18 year old, and we all loved it. It's got a creative sense of humor refreshing in these days of tired animated movies that mostly rely on bathroom humor or silly animals. Plus, it's got Will Ferrell!

as the movie's theme song suggests.. Everything is Awesome! I took my 8yr old and we both enjoyed it immensely! I was very pleased with the underlying moral so to speak and life lesson. The ending was a complete surprise tho! a very wonderful movie that is fully deserved all the pre-release hype!

This is an entertaining movie with the good core message that everyone has creativity within them, not only those who are "designated" to be the creative ones. It's quick paced, adults will get the little comments on the side, and yes, it is a big commercial but that's okay. It re-inspires people to look at and play with Lego differently. When I asked my 8 year old if he thought it was "too long, too short, just right", he said "too short" because he wanted more.

What an unexpected treat this movie is. The story line is original, focusing on the perils of conformity. The writing is great and the animation, which gives the look of stop motion, is a visual treat. Loved everything about this movie!

Watching this movie was like watching a child's home video given an extremely large budget, including big name actors and unlimited access to Lego bricks. Everyone I know that has seen it, loved it - boy, girls, and parents. This is a must-go-and-watch in the theater, then buy the Bluray and watch it some more. This is a multi-layer cornucopia of fun, artistry, and comedy. It was well written with humor and wit. The Lego structures were creatively designed and awesome to watch some of the enormity and scale, large and miniature. I particularly enjoyed the underlying message, and creativity of it all. The comedy and gags were also entertaining.
