Really a fantastic movie. With a voice case featuring Chris Pratt, Will Arnett, Elizabeth Banks, Charlie Day, Nick Offerman, Alison Brie, and Morgan Freeman you'd expect the movie to be funny, but it's so much more than that. For one, the animation is AMAZING. It is the coolest thing to see everything from fire to smoke to dust to water rendered on the big screen in nothing but Legos. It really gives the movie a sense of realness in that you're just playing with these toys and making this all up on your head. On top of all that though, the movie ends with a pretty profound message regarding conformity, creativity, and community, and the way in which it does this is both heartfelt and really awesome. It felt like it took a couple pages out of Wreck It Ralph's book, which was also amazing. Totally great movie, and one you should absolutely see with your kids if you have them (as in, seeing it with them is a must) but if you don't, go see it anyway. It's that good.

I really enjoyed this movie not only was it funny but I like the message that it tried to convey for kids and adults alike in the sense that it's wrong to consider someone a nobody, and there not important just because they may be different or do things differently than others. I'm glad my kids got to see that because they even said to me "Mommy that was mean what they said about Emmett". I think we all have the ability to be great at something. A must see movie!

Ever since this movie previewed, both my son (9) and I have been wanting to see it. Needless to say, it was a great flick with constant motion, constant humor, and enough of a story line to keep us engaged. I'll probably end up buying this one as well!

I have a seven year old so I go to pretty much every kids movie that comes out. I expected to be mildly entertained for 90 minutes and then 90 minutes of "Dad, can we go to the Lego store?" I was shocked out how good the story was. I was doubly shocked to actually have my emotions moved. Even the presence of Will Ferrell, whose movies I despise, couldn't ruin it for me. If you have kids, go. If you don't have kids, watch it on Netflix in a few months late at night when no one else is around. Either way you'll enjoy it. BTW - We still ended up going to the Lego store, it is a very long ad after all. Be prepared.

This movie was painfully boring. It was one of the hardest movies to stay through in many years. I think there was a Hercules movie with Lou Ferrigno where he had subtitles years ago...this movie may have been worse.... I counted the minutes until it ended. A tragically boring movie.
