It's okay, Lloyd. Nobody's parents are perfect.
I mean, my mom is weird, and collects seashells. Your dad levels cities and attacks innocent people. So, they've all got their quirks, ya know.

I'd never seen an episode of Ninjago and had no idea what to expect, but this installment in the LEGO movie franchise had a killer trailer. Even with a fatuous Taylor Swift song attached, it was entertaining, mostly because it was about an orphaned superhero dealing with his jerk dad. It was genuinely funny, which is good, because I'm pretty sure I've seen that trailer in the theater four times this year.
And it's that bitter father-son relationship that makes this movie. Dave Franco nails the exasperated kid, and Justin Theroux does the same for his tone-deaf supervillain dad. I'd go so far as to say Theroux is right up there with Will Arnett's Batman, which is no mean feat. When you throw in the eye candy and creativity of past LEGO movies, this is a lot of fun.
