Once again, I have that blasted Everything is Awesome song stuck in my head, but it was totally worth it! Armed with a great story, fantastic twists, and some unexpected emotional moments, The Lego Movie 2 not only meets the bar that the first film set but even surpasses it.

The film follows our favorite Lego community as they have struggled to rebuild after being repeatedly attacked by an alien swarm. When Lucy, Batman, Benny, Unikitty, and Metalbeard are all kidnapped by General Mayhem and taken back to her world to meet Queen Watevra Wa'nabi, Emmett sets out on a solo mission to find and save his friends. Along the way, he meets Rex Dangervest, the epitome of cool and tough that Emmett desires to be.

There are two things specifically that stood out about this film that made it my favorite of the four that's been released: the writing and the songs. Phil Lord and Christopher Miller has been a powerhouse duo with this franchise. It seems like every film tops the last one (with the exception of Ninjago). The Lego Movie 2 is full of surprising twists, life lessons, hearty humorous moments, and a few emotional moments. There's not as much emotional connection as there could have, or should have, been but what we were given was certainly good. The songs were catchy and there's still a risk of driving yourself crazy listening to them. That's how you know they're great! You can't deny these songs are memorable. From Tiffany Haddish's Not Evil to Will Arnett's Batman rap during Gotham City Guys, this film had me tapping my foot to every musical number. Yes, even Catchy Song.

The humor was a huge plus. Sometimes, when movies poke fun or spoof other things, it can be a recipe for disaster. The Lego Movie 2 was clever with its humor. I found myself actually laughing out loud on several occasions. There were some moments that you could take multiple ways. For instance, "Marvel won't return our calls". Is that a jab at Infinity War's ending or Disney's strict licensing? Take it however you want because either way, it's a fun jab.

In conclusion, definitely go see this film. Whether you have kids or not, you'll more than likely enjoy this film. I know I had a blast. I give it a 3.8 out of 4.
