The LEGO Movie opened big and strong this weekend, bringing in an estimated $69.1 million. ¬†That’s quite an opening for a February movie release.

An ordinary guy named Emmet (Chris Pratt) is mistaken as being the Master Builder, the one who can save the universe. With the aid of an old mystic Vitruvius (Morgan Freeman), a tough young lady named Lucy (Elizabeth Banks), and Batman (Will Arnett), Emmet will fight to defeat the evil tyrant Lord Business (Will Ferrell) who is bent on destroying the universe by gluing it together.

Though my movie going experience was less than stellar, The Boy and I thoroughly enjoyed the movie, and I laughed quite hard when Young Zach decided not to join us, only to have my son spoil the movie for him the next day. Serves you right Young Zach. Serves. You. Right.

    Oh man, the Lego Movie was such a fun ride. I laughed as hard as my kids. Heck, the whole theater was laughing. There was plenty of fun for adults and kids. By far, the best movie, kid or otherwise, I’ve seen at the theater in some time.

    Fantastic family fun, my son (age 7) really dug following Emmet and as parents, my wife and I dug some of the adult humor that they snuck in. Also, I teared up at the “dad” moment.

    Stupid dusty room.

    I agree. It was a very fun movie. One of the few movies where I just don’t hate Will Ferrell as an actor.
