If one isn’t totally focused by the endless supply of laughs due to a lot of big named actors cutting loose and having a ball, one of the best parts of this flick is that it does so well at commentating on how harmful unquestioned conformity can be (presented in a magnificent way that would ruin a bit of the wonder if spoilered beforehand). One realizes how much we as a society from adults who just want peace and quiet to corporations trying to pre-define our roles crush creativity and as a result leave a shell that is depressingly emptier each day.
Heck, the even the toy company that inspired this world would bring about even more tremendous benefit if it applied the open creativity message to a it once did as recently as a few decades ago instead of only putting out sets that appeal to what a girl or boy is supposed to like. That said, I can think of nothing better to take the whole family to right now with a setting that is without a doubt corny, but so rightfully wholesome. Because of how much good can come of such ideals and for something I will without a doubt see again as soon as possible, “The Lego Movie” deserves the first perfect score of 2014 with five out of five blocks.
