‘The Lego Movie’ Was Worth The One-Hour Wait [VIDEO]

Everything is Awesome!  That’s what you’ll be singing for at least a week after watching “The Lego Movie!”  We promised our kids that we would go see the movie the weekend it came out.  Thinking that it might be difficult for all five of us to sit together on Friday or Saturday, we waited until Sunday.  That really didn’t help our cause.

We tries to get in early in the morning, because we had plans during the afternoon.  Well, despite our best efforts, the earliest show we could get into was the 2:10pm showing, because the earlier shows were selling out ridiculously fast.  I went to the theater before noon to buy the tickets and we showed up an hour early for the show, hoping that we could sit together.

Standing in line for 40 minutes reminded me of waiting to ride something at Cedar Point.  Then they opened the theater about 20 minutes before show time.  Yes, it was a lengthy wait, especially with kids… but it was well worth it!  “The Lego Movie” was amazingly well put together.  After ‘building’ the excitement for months, this movie definitely lived up to all the hype!  On a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being best, this easily scored a 26!  Even Roger Ebert gave it four stars!

On top of a great story line, characters that you really grew to love, and a sinister villain that you loved to hate, “The Lego Movie” also had one of the best ensemble casts ever ‘assembled!’  From the Wills (Ferrell, Arnett & Forte), to Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Banks, Liam Neeson, Jonah Hill, and many more, the voice work really brought these characters to life.  The actual voices of ‘Star Wars” C-3PO and Lando Calrissian, Anthony Daniels and Billy Dee Williams, surprised the audience as the Millennium Falcon made a delightful cameo appearance.

It cost Warner Bros. Studios $60 million dollars to make the film, and executives must be smiling this morning as “The Lego Movie” took is $69.1 million dollars in ticket sales over the weekend.  So what are you waiting for?  If you don’t have kids, now would be a good time to take up babysitting!  Get off your ‘block’ and treat yourself to “The Lego Movie” right now!
