7. 'The Lego Movie'
What Peter Travers said: "Animated movies in 3-D are box-office bonanzas, and The Lego Movie is no exception ... The fun is nonstop. The movie's irresistible theme song, by Tegan and Sara, is 'Everything Is Awesome.' In this movie, everything really is." Three-and-a-half stars.
This animated potpourri featuring DC comic book heroes, Star Wars characters and Shaquille O'Neal was loved both by parents and their kids, as well as the entire 18-35 demographic. There's something about the film's "anything goes" nature and brilliant comic sensibility that appeals to audiences of all ages. And don't forget Will Ferrell's amazing voice turn as the villain Lord Business.
