The LEGO Movie has surpassed the expectations of pretty much everyone by becoming both a critical darling and a huge box-office triumph. The clever creative team of Phil Lord and Chris Miller and the all-star voice cast somehow managed to lift a toy commercial above the cinematic doldrums of February.
So whether you’re still singing “Everything Is Awesome” and quoting Will Arnett’s Batman excessively, or for some strange reason you’re still skeptical of a film starring a bunch of talking blocks, this hilarious blooper reel is a fun few minutes. Enjoy.
