Some bathroom humor. A shark passes gas, and one of the Lego characters tells him, "You need to lay off the beans." In another scene, when a Lego character's scuba gear starts to take on water, he flushes the water away, and it sounds just like a toilet's flush.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Lego Atlantis is a short animated feature that's also a tie-in to a line of Atlantis-themed toys manufactured by the Lego toy company. Although the story itself is entertaining and quirky, there are two instances of bathroom humor: one involving passing gas and a second involving a toilet flush sound effect. For younger children, there are some scary scenes in which monster squids and sharks look vicious while wielding tridents as they pursue the Lego heroes on their quest for Atlantis.

Is It Any Good?
LEGO ATLANTIS is a 22-minute computer-animated feature that goes by a bit too quickly to leave much of an impression. Well, except for fueling your kids' desire to buy from the line of toys from the Lego Atlantis collection.
Although there are occasional positive messages concerning perseverance, as well as some quirky moments of slapstick and some over-the-top silliness, the overall story feels rushed and over as soon as it begins. It's fun, all things considered, and somewhat informative in terms of discussing the mythology of Atlantis, but, at the end of the day, this is little more than a product tie-in.
