"Everything is awesome!! Everything is cool when you're part of a team! Everything is awesome... when you're living for the dream!!!"
Yes, that song WILL be stuck in your head after watching this movie.
We went to see The LEGO Movie a couple weeks ago when our friends from Oregon were visiting. It was their daughter's 7th birthday, and she LOVES Legos, so what better way to celebrate than a trip to Legoland (which is only about 10 minutes from our house), and The Lego Movie the next day.
This movie is about an ordinary Lego construction man named Emmet, who is mistaken for a MasterBuilder, trying to save his Lego world from "The Kragle" with the help of his new-found friends Wyldstyle, Unikitty, and, of course, Batman.
It was pretty cute, with good messages throughout. Plus, it's always nice to have a kids movie adults can enjoy too.
It's rated PG for some mild violence and mild adult humor (which goes right above the kids heads, really) but other than that, I say this is great for kids of all ages, especially if they're into Legos.
