Synopsis: The first-ever full length theatrical LEGO movie 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. 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.
Ferrell ('The Campaign") stars as the voice of Emmet's primary adversary, President Business, an erudite, anal-retentive CEO who has a hard time balancing world domination with micro-managing his own life; while Neeson ('Taken" and 'Taken 2," Oscar nominee for 'Schindler's List") stars as the voice of the president's powerful henchman, known as Bad Cop, who will stop at nothing to catch Emmet. Offerman (NBC's 'Parks and Recreation") takes on the role of a craggy, swaggering pirate obsessed with revenge on President Business and Brie (NBC's 'Community") plays a sweet, loveable member of Emmet's team with a powerful secret.
Chris Pratt ('Moneyball") stars as the voice of Emmet. Oscar® winner Morgan Freeman ('Million Dollar Baby") and Elizabeth Banks ('The Hunger Games," Emmy nominee for '30 Rock"), will star as two of Emmet's fellow travelers: Vitruvius, an old mystic; and tough-as-nails Lucy, who mistakes Emmet for the savior of the world and guides him on his quest. Lucy also calls upon the mysterious Batman, a LEGO minifigure voiced by Will Arnett (Emmy nominee, '30 Rock"), with whom she shares a history.
Review: Feel good movie for all ages, great story line and addictive tunes. Main themes:
"Everything is Awsome!
Everything is cool when you're part of a team!"
"Creativity is good, but everyone has it in them to create, no matter how big or small the idea."
Fabulous! 5 stars!
