Sheep Movie Review: The LEGO Movie

The Lego Movie, review, kids

The LEGO Movie
Directed By: Phil Lord and Christopher Miller
Staring: Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Morgan Freeman, Will Ferrell, Charlie Day, Liam Neeson 

"The LEGO Movie" is the first-ever, full-length theatrical LEGO adventure. The original 3D computer animated story follows Emmet (Chris Pratt) 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. 

It's always a blessing when kids and adults alike can enjoy a fun warm hearted flick. The Lego Movie delivers all the brick laying foundation of being one of the best kid comedies I've seen in a very long time. It's hilarious with non-stop laughs! Everything is awesome!

Aside from the laughs, kitten posters and fun variety of LEGO action figures, you have a story about being creative. Follow your own path and use your individual imagination to make something new and awesome. Cause everything is awesome!

This is truly a meaningful story at it's core and that journey takes a kids toy and turns it into a whole world of wonder. Sure, Toy Story did that too but this is Legos....and they are awesome! The ending was surprising to me, which only endears this tale even more. 

It's a witty, crazy, excitingly manic ride of CGI awesomeness, including a moody Batman and Liam Neeson having a split personality disorder, all wrapped up in a lesson on letting go and I loved every second of it! 

Try to get this song out of your head after watching the movie. I dare you! 

Getting 4 and 1/2 'space ship' Sheep


  1. I admit it, I'm a huge fan of animated features AND a Lego addict (except when I step on them...) I was a little afraid of this movie, figuring it would either be REALLY good or REALLY bad. I'm very relieved by your thoughtful review and now I can hardly wait to see it. Thanks!

    1. I was feeling the same. I walked into this thinking "ok, suck it up for the kid" BUT I was laughing and crying along with everyone else. Yea, I cry in kid movies. Don't judge me! lol Let me know what you think after giving it a whirl :)

  2. Thanks for the review Katie, it sure sounds like a good one! I am not a fan of animated films or such, or Disney, but this could be nice, snuggled warm on the couch some cold evening.

  3. I actually just saw this movie, and I freaking loved it!! Highly recommended, even if you don't have any kids to go see it with.
