So today we were invited by Legoland Florida to come see a preview of "The Lego Movie!"

We turned up at the theater and was greeted by some fun Lego Movie stuff!

Two of the characters from the film, Emmet and WyldStyle were there! These guys will be found at Legoland Florida on Feb 8th & 9th!

The gave us a cool "bucket of stuff" including information about their "Lego Movie Weekend" on Feb 8th & 9th celebrating the movie at the park. They'll have a Lego Movie themed scavenger hunt, video game challenge, mural build, and character meet & greets at the park, so don't miss that event!

Can you spot the KidTums Lego?

Hanging out with our friends from Attractions Magazine for the film!

Overall, I really liked the movie.

!!SPOILER ALERT!! I liked all the Lego scenes, thought the characters were fun and entertaining, loved all the tie-ins to other properties and the humor.

!!SPOILER ALERT!! The wacky "I'm stop motion animated, but I'm really not" style worked very well.

!!SPOILER ALERT!! Thought the Mark Mothersbaugh score was fun and the "Everything is Awesome" song silly, but catchy. (Watch the video below)

!!SPOILER ALERT!! My only minor complaint was the use of live action scenes. I didn't mind that there was the live action element and the tie-in to it, but I felt like it tied it in TOO much. I didn't need the movie to have an emotional struggle between a kid and his dad. I just wanted to watch Legos do fun, silly stuff.

Overall, though, movie was a LOT of fun and I think it will be a huge hit! If you're a fan of Legos, or just fun animated movies, we recommend The Lego Movie!

I've expected this film to be awesome (heheh) and I seriously don't think that I'll be disappointed. I love slapstick humor!

Looks pretty cool. My son is looking forward to seeing this movie. The Ocala Drive In near us is going to be showing this. Since they got their new digital projector the picture is practically high definition. We're hoping to get our annual passes soon to Legoland and I can't wait since I myself haven't been there since Cypress Gardens was there.

I've gone pantless!

I've seen the trailer for this flick so many times that I feel I've already seen the movie.

^ I think it should do pretty well. As far as animated movies go, it held my attention and was "fun" - I mean, I personally liked it better than several Pixar movies - Cars, Cars 2, Brave, Up, & Wall-E.

I love donkeys more than me.

When I heard that a Lego movie was in production I just dismissed it as probably a cartoon for five year olds. But having seen the trailer and hearing these early reviews I'm getting a little excited to check it out. Looks great!

As a fan of Legos I am really looking forward to the movie. Thank you for the review and the spoiler alerts so I could skip over those.

Now I just need to make it to Legoland...
