Emmet, an ordinary, rules-following, perfectly average LEGO minifigure 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.

This is a fun film. I've never ventured into the lego universe outside of playing with legos, so I'm not sure how this stacks up against the video games and animated movies. It was a little too action-packed for my 3 year old, but I think he'll enjoy it in a few more years. I thought it had a great lesson about conformity, and the beauty in fun/creativity vs perfection.
My expectations for this movie were mixed - seemed like a grab by LEGO corp to cash in, but the reviews were good. After seeing it - I was glad we all watched. There are a lot of pop/culture references for the adults, humor, action for the kids, cool ideas about when it's OK to be an individual and when a team effort is best, and some sentiment that appeals to both. While it isn't the best movie ever, it's worth a look and a great evening for the whole family. Teens, kids, adults - we all liked it!
