Don’t roll your eyes if your kids want to see “The Lego Movie,” says Stephanie Curtis. The film comes down to the question: Will you follow the instructions or will you not? It’s witty and fun, with great voices from Chris Pratt, Liam Neeson and Will Arnett.
“The Monuments Men,” on the other hand, failed to resonate with Euan Kerr. He thinks it’s a wonderful story, but the film has some structural problems.
