That ubiquitous toy from childhood makes its way to the big screen with the tale of Emmet (Chris Pratt), an everyman who finds himself squaring off against the tyrannical President Business (Will Ferrell), whose evil plot is to glue the world in place. While going about the humdrum routine of his monotonous life, Emmet stumbles upon the wizard Vitruvius (Morgan Freeman), who convinces him that he is the prophesized “Special”—the greatest builder within the Bricksburg metropolis. Emmet sets off on a quest to thwart President Business with a host of Lego sidekicks, voiced by the likes of Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Charlie Day, Jonah Hill and Liam Neeson, among other stars. “The Lego Movie is strikingly, exhilaratingly, exhaustingly fresh.” (Betsy Sharkey, LA Times)
