THE LEGO MOVIE
2014, Warner Bros., 100 min, USA, Dir: Phil Lord, Christopher Miller

Everything is awesome about the hit computer animated family adventure, which turns what could have been a feature-length toy commercial on its head to become a celebration of childhood creativity. An ordinary construction worker named Emmet (Chris Pratt) is mistaken for β€œthe Special,” chosen to save the LEGO universe from the evil plans of Lord Business (Will Ferrell). The star-studded voice cast includes Morgan Freeman, Liam Neeson and Elizabeth Banks. β€œPop-culture jokes ricochet off the heads of younger viewers to tickle the world-weary adults in the audience, with just enough sentimental goo applied at the end to unite the generations.” - A.O. Scott, The New York Times.
