The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part

If you watched the first LEGO Movie, and I am sure you did, you know the ending was a bit of a cliffhanger. Little sister was given permission to play with the LEGO world, and it looked like she joined with a vengeance! The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part picks up right were the last movie ended and bridges the gap to a new story-line five years into the future. The movie is sure to cause families to laugh and moms to cry (more on that later).

Here is the official synopsis:

The much-anticipated sequel to the critically acclaimed, global box office phenomenon that started it all, The LEGO® Movie 2: The Second Part, reunites the heroes of Bricksburg in an all new action-packed adventure to save their beloved city. It’s been five years since everything was awesome and the citizens are now facing a huge new threat: LEGO DUPLO® invaders from outer space, wrecking everything faster than it can be rebuilt. The battle to defeat the invaders and restore harmony to the LEGO universe will take Emmet (Chris Pratt), Lucy (Elizabeth Banks), Batman (Will Arnett) and their friends to faraway, unexplored worlds, including a strange galaxy where everything is a musical. It will test their courage, creativity and Master Building skills, and reveal just how special they really are.

The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part is a fun adventure with jokes aimed at the parents, as well as references only older audience members will understand (Die Hard, Back to the Future, and The Matrix for example). This movie is just as good as the original and is completely appropriate for even the youngest family members.

The story-line of the LEGO characters is, of course, directly influenced by the lives of the brother and sister who are giving them life. These siblings do not play well together and it is causing their mom quite a bit of stress. As a mom myself, I could relate to the mom and I understood her heart in wanting the kids to play together and be nice to one another. That aspect of the story tugged at my heartstrings and led to some misty eyes. This movie is a great choice for all families, especially if the kiddos sometimes have a hard time playing without fighting.

Rating: PG for some rude humor

Scene after the credits: No. However, the first half of the credits is completely worth your while. Be sure to listen to the song lyrics.

Running time:  106 minutes
