If you have a Lego fan in your house I am sure that you have heard about THE LEGO MOVIE premiering February 7th. Jenni was lucky enough to have the opportunity to take her two little guys to a screening of the movie this past weekend. Here’s what she had to say about this awesome movie!
We watched the 3d version of the movie which was cool, but I think the movie would be just as enjoyable without the 3d effects. This animated Lego film features all of your favorite Lego figures. Lord Business is the villain who steals the secret weapon the KRAGLE (which we later learn is actually Krazy Glue). The good doers are looking for The Special, who is foretold to be a master Lego builder who can save the Lego world from Mr. Business and the destructive Kragle. The story line is interesting and the cast of characters are fun. There is a lot of humor that both kids and parents will enjoy. The movie was great for ages 5 and up. My favorite part of the movie was the underlying theme . Don’t restrict yourself or your children when it comes to creativity. Moms , don’t glue those Lego creations together! Let the kids build their set, tear it down and make their own creations. That’s what Legos are for after all!! The length of the movie was just perfect for engaging my 5 year old, without losing him at the end. I won’t give away any spoilers here, but there was a nice twist at the end of the movie, with a touching lesson for both kids and adults . I dare say I had a tear in my eye ! Oh, and a word of warning. You WILL come out of this movie singing the theme song! As a side note, if you are taking young children to this movie be aware that there was a preview with some not-for-little-kids language.
I want one of each! We are big LEGO fans here!!

The original 3D computer animated story follows Emmet, an ordinary, rules-following, perfectly average LEGO minifigure who is mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary person and the key to saving the world.
