So my kids really like the movie and sing the song I heard them singing it and realized what they were saying.



Here are some the lines from the song.




"We're the same, I'm like you, you're like me, we're all working in harmony"




"Everything is better when we stick together"




"Everything is cool when you're part of a team"




"Have you heard the news, everyone's talking
Life is good 'cause everything's awesome




"Lost my job, it's a new opportunity

More free time for my awesome community"




"It's awesome to win, and it's awesome to lose"




The bad guy in the movie is called "lord Business"




The movie has a very collectivist theme to it and I do not think it is my any mistake




My wife picked up on it too.

It does but at the same time the hero learns that free thinking saves the day and collectivism is not the way to be.

It makes fun of Starbucks, pop music, big buisness / big .Gov.

I really liked it.

Sounds like a lot of the commie talk I heard at OSUT in '95 at Ft Knox.  You should probably encase your kids in concrete so they never learn the value of working as a team or community.

Something tells me that you didn't actually watch the movie. The entire point of the movie encourages the viewer to be a free thinker. To throw away the directions, and build what you want to build. The story was told from the imagination of a child who has a workaholic father who spends his free time on a Lego City hobby, and pays little attention to his child. President Business represents the work that keeps the father from spending time with the son.

Nobody is really arguing that point. The OP is so far off the message of The Lego Movie that it's comical, and some of us are having fun with it.

The evil regime has a collectivisit theme to it.

The story is about a regime that demands conformity with their ideals or else you get hunted down by their overly militarized police force. The song is part of their brainwashing propaganda.

To me, this sounds an awful lot like the current administration. (and the writers/directors have said in interview that's where some of their inspiration came from)

Of course the film also makes the point that point that being totally individualistic makes it difficult to work as group. Both extremes have problems.

Lord business is lord business (and not lord something-else) because he's the kid's dad so needed to have a dad-type job but it also had to be a job that gave him authority in the lego world. Lord Lumberjack or Lord Dentist might not have worked so well - bit less plausible that they might be able to take over the world.

I found the movie to be extremely well balanced. It's pro using your imagination & having fun and anti forcing people to do what you want.

Something that a lot of the auto-snark here is missing out on is that the OP didn't say he watched the movie.  he said he heard his kids singing a song from it, and didn't like what he heard.  If he jumped to an unfair conclusion, he at least clearly explained how he got there, unlike the pack who have figured out that (gasp!) he didn't actually see the movie.
