The Lego Movie

Emmett (voiced by Chris Pratt), a completely average in every way Lego piece, is mistaken for a hero and charged to save the world against a hell bent dictator (voiced by Will Ferrell). The Lego Movie goes on a lot longer than it should, often panders to its audience with irritating segments, and contains action sequences that grow tiresome but has some authentic laughs, humorous voice work, and a truly funny physical cameo from Ferrell.
