MomSmack was invited to a sneak preview of The Lego Movie. Thank goodness because we’re not sure our kids could have waited one more day to see this movie. Truth be told, neither could we. Especially with the list of celebrities doing the voice overs: Chris Pratt, Will Arnett, Morgan Freeman, Elizabeth Banks, Liam Neeson and Will Ferrell. Are you kidding?
We were not let down. We literally laughed out loud throughout the whole movie. Oh, and the kids laughed too. The movie was chock full of punchlines equally divided between kid and adult humor.
The star of the movie, Emmet (Chris Pratt), is an unmemorable rule follower desperate to fit in with the guys. His life changes when he is mistaken for a “Special” master builder by Wyldstyle (Elizabeth Banks). Emmett, the reluctant hero, finds himself in the position of having to save Bricksburg from President Business (Will Ferrell) and his evil Kragle.
The “twist” at the end, in which a non-Lego Will Farrell shows up with his son, is heart-warming and provides a great reminder for all parents about sweating the small stuff.
Make sure you go see The Lego Movie, because everything is TRULY awesome.
