For me to enjoy an animated flick these days it really has to be original, different and offer something new. Just being cute, act “smart”, and has some funny lines is not enough. That is why the Lego Movie succeeds. I was so pleasantly surprised when I took the kiddos to see what I assumed would be a throwaway film to sell more toys. What I got was a fun and smart movie with cool animation and engaging twists and turns.
