Emmet is an ordinary, rules-following, perfectly average LEGO minifigure who is mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary person and the key to saving the world. He is drafted into a fellowship of strangers on an epic quest to stop an evil tyrant, a journey for which Emmet is hopelessly and hilariously underprepared.
Animated Adventure - This is an animated action/adventure/comedy based on the enduringly
popular building block toys. There is some action violence but
nothing too intense for young kids, and there is a bit of
sophisticated humor for the adults in the crowd.
Roger EbertFull Review Excellent Everything in 'The Lego Movie' is, indeed, awesome.
USA TodayFull Review Good The Lego Movie is a spirited romp through a world that looks distinctively familiar, and yet freshly inventive.
Washington PostFull Review Very Good There are so many things to like about "The Lego Movie": a great voice cast, clever dialogue and a handsome blend of stop-motion and CGI animation that feels lovingly retro, while still looking sharp in 21st-century 3-D.
NY PostFull Review Average As cute and energetic as it is, "The Lego Movie" is more exhausting than fun, too unsure of itself to stick with any story thread for too long.

GREAT REVIEWS FROM ALL AGES, BOTH MALES AND FEMALES! The kids obviously loved "The Lego Movie." Even most adults indicated that they either loved it or enjoyed it very much. Only a very small percentage rated it as low as "average," and, equally important, no one disliked it.
