Everything is Awesome at The LEGO Movie (#TheLegoMovie)

Pin It

I am not sure who loved The LEGO Movie (in 3D) more – my husband and I or the kids.  From the opening scenes in Emmett (the unlikely hero)’s house where the DIY home decor lover side of me had visions of replicating his wall art displays, to the plot which is reminiscent at times of the recent teen dystopian novel I am reading, The Uglies by Scott Westerfeld, I loved it all.  I laughed (out loud at several points), I was surprised (no worries, I won’t spoil it for you), and my love affair with all things LEGO was renewed.


The story line is uplifting and positive, which my husband and I really appreciated. The movie encourages “builders” to create on their own and not worry about always “following the directions” and “following the crowd.” Our older son (almost 5), is a LEGO nut and loves building – often completing sets for ages 8-10 on his own with very minimal parental support (i.e., adding stickers or assembling particularly complex pieces).  However, he refuses to use his imagination to build freely.  I hope after seeing this movie, he will explore the possibilities made available based on his own imagination.

My three year old love the superheroes and cheered each time one of his favorites appeared on screen.  However, even my 5 year old was frightened a few times in the movie.

The highlight of the movie might be the original song, “Everything is Awesome”, which you are sure to be singing long after you leave the theaters.  The LEGO movie opens February 7 in theaters nationwide, and LEGO has designed a whole new series of The LEGO Movie-themed LEGO sets so your little ones can replay the highlights from movie at home while waiting for the movie to be released on DVD.

Update: My 5 year old, in the spirit of #theLEGOmovie created his own stop motion LEGO video and put it on youTube.  Now debuting Fox, The Irritable Robber:
