Goofs

During Metal Beard's tale, the first time they show the Relic Room there is a gummy bear on the pillar between the floppy disc and golf ball, and there is a highlighter behind the golf ball between the key and pen cap. When they zoom in on the battery, it's sitting where the highlighter was and a bottle of white out is where the gummy bear was. (In scenes with Lord Business and Good Cop/Bad Cop, it consistently shows the white out and highlighter in those spots.) See more »

Crazy Credits

According to the DVD commentary, Will Forte was billed as "Orville Forte" due to a typo. Forte's actual first name (his full name is Orville Willis Forte IV) rather than his professional name was listed on a form used when compiling the end credits. When informed of the mistake, Forte asked the producers to leave the "incorrect" billing as it was. Thus, the voice of "Abraham Lincoln" remained credited to "Orville Forte." See more »

Alternate Versions

On Amazon Prime Video, two versions were released: the scope version (no extras) and the flat version (matted to 16:9 from 1.37:1; contains extras at the end). See more »

Childhood Awesomeness
7 February 2014 | by jonathan-e-dennySee all my reviews

I was the only adult who didn't bring kids to the theater and all I can say is that I was leading the clapping when the credits rolled.

"The Lego Movie" was an awesome, super creative, and extremely satisfying film for all ages- that is, if you have ever played with Legos. Even people that have never bought a Lego set will this enjoy this awesomely humorous and in the end, heartfelt movie.

(Notice I am using the word awesome a lot, because one cannot stop singing the "Everything is awesome" song played in the movie. Too catchy!)

The creators did a wonderful job putting all the classic things about Legos and making a new movie packed with humor.

The voice actors were outstanding. You can tell they really enjoyed doing the movie and put in a lot of effort. Liam Neeson was fantastic as the Good Cop/Bad Cop. But the most credit to the success of this movie goes to Will Farrell who played the villain, President Business. He gives such a great effort in this movie which allows you to laugh, smile, and want more Lego awesomeness.

I give the Lego movie a big two thumbs up and is by far the best picture I've seen in a few months. Highly recommend this movie to all Lego lovers who have a passion to build and create something awesome, just like the movie makers created this amazingly, AWESOME, film.
