The first film is very funny an very good. The second one has an equal amount of goodness. There is like literally no bad stuff in this movie! It is so epicly non bogus that it is literally funny! The movie looks like it is all made out of real Legos besides some pieces of string which is seriously infuriating. There was not cussing. The jokes are funny, and in conclusion this movie is so stellar that it is not bad. oh, by the way I think this movie is ok for 3 year olds and up.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (20):
Kids say (71):

It's not quite the lightning in a bottle that its predecessor was, but this entertaining sequel is still definitely better than the average kids' movie. In all fairness, it would have been almost impossible to match or surpass The Lego Movie, given what a delightful surprise that turned out to be. And The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part is tons of fun -- it just somehow manages to feel a little bit slower/less snappy, despite the frequent action sequences. But kids will unquestionably be invested in Emmet and Lucy's latest round of adventures, and they'll love the nonstop use of creative Lego vehicles, tools, and other imaginative brickwork. And adults will get a kick out of the cameos (hey there, Bruce Willis); the punchy, pop culture-savvy humor; and the talented voice cast. Haddish is a strong addition as Queen Watevra (her song about not being into "Gotham City guys" is a highlight), and the supporting players are all strong.

The plot has some creative twists, too, and a message about cooperation and getting along that kids -- especially siblings -- will recognize and appreciate. And, believe it or not, the filmmakers manage to one-up themselves in the earworm department. If you've finally gotten "Everything Is Awesome" out of your head, be warned: The tongue-in-cheek (but accurately titled) "Catchy Song" is bound to take its place.
