This week the sequel to the LEGO Movie comes out and kids and parents everywhere want to know if everything is still awesome. We attended a screening of the movie earlier this week, and indeed kids, The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part parent review can be summed up as AWESOME.
The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part Parent Review
First off, living up to the original is always a tough gig. Sometimes the jokes or maybe the characters or songs just fall flat.
And if that happened with this movie, I was afraid it would be as painful as crossing my daughter’s LEGO strewn-room barefoot in the middle of the night.
Parents: no worries! This sequel is a legit follow up to the original. I can say that I absolutely enjoyed this one just as much as the first LEGO Movie.
I was afraid that the magic of the original twist ending would get lost in The LEGO Movie 2, but dang, I think it just got even better. From a parenting standpoint, it was almost profound at times.
Mind blown, right?
Great lessons learned for the kiddos and parents will totally recognize themselves in the pivotal “This time I mean it!” scene.
And the songs are fun- you get a lot of Everything Is Awesome, of course, but there’s another one my kids have been singing around the house.
This songs gonna get stuck inside your heeee-aaddd. You’ll get it when you see the movie!
The puns are hilarious and the Marvel shade totally had me rolling.
The LEGO 2 Movie: The Second Part Parental Review
I took all 4 of my kids (7, 12, 14, and 16) and this movie is age appropriate for everyone.
My 16-year-old was sitting next to me and laughed the whole movie long, so even an older child will enjoy this one! But my 7-year-old wins the night as she was belly laughing like crazy.
I love movies that we can all enjoy, and this one was right up there for us. 6/6 Shenanigans agree.
The LEGO® Movie 2: The Second Part movie opens on February 8, 2019, in theaters nationwide!

It will test their courage, creativity and Master Building skills, and reveal just how special they really are.
I’m a fangirl and I don’t pretend otherwise. Geeking out over pop culture is a big part of My No-Guilt Life, and I’m here to say it’s ok if that’s your thing too! No matter how old you are. Ahem. I’m solidly on #TeamCap and think Iron Man has gotten a bit big for his gold-titanium alloy britches. Oh- and I’m completely in love with Agent Coulson and Agent May. Completely.
