We thought Phil Lord and Chris Millerís The LEGO Movie would succeed. Reviews were off the charts positive (we gave it 4.5 out of 5 stars in our own analysis), and buzz swirling around stories we posted leading up to the filmís release generated great comments from readers who were anxiously awaiting the fast-paced, creative comedy.

But we didnít expect LEGO to put up these kinds of numbers. The movie banked $69 million, dominating the Top 10 and pulling in audience members from every demographic. Why? Why did this movie hit such a grand slam home run? We dug deep into The LEGO Movie and came up with 5 compelling reasons why we think Warner Bros. has a massive hit on its hands.
