The Lego Movie

Question: I get that the story is played out through a father and child's imagination, but there's three questions about that. 1. The film's first scene takes place eight-and-a-half years before Emmet's story began and presumably right before Finn was born. How was that played out when Finn wasn't even around back then? 2. When Emmet ends up in our world, he tries to and fails to talk to Finn and his father, sees everything they do, and struggles to move on his own until Finn notices him on the floor. How is that all that possible? 3. Why is the dad referred to as "The Man Upstairs" when he just wants to glue his stuff and Finn just wants to play? Vitruvius said that "The Man Upstairs" chose Emmet to be the hero. So, shouldn't Finn be the one known as "The Man Upstairs"?

Chosen answer: 1. The eight years earlier mention could be just part of Finn's back story for his game. 2. Though the story is set to the imagination of Finn, this scene shows that the characters are real. Think Toy Story. 3. The dad is called "The Man Upstairs" because he is literally upstairs when we first hear him. And because he's the one who built their world.

Question: When President Business is watering the town with the antidote for The Kragle, how are he and the water bucket flying above everyone?

Chosen answer: There's not actually a reason. Don't forget, this is just played out in a father and child's imagination. The father and child are just imagining the story as they go along,.

Casual Person

Question: In the end of the movie, what does Vitruvius mean when he says "I liked Emmet before it was cool"?

Chosen answer: The "it was cool" part means how Emmett saved the day and how his sacrifice made a good final battle. He's basically saying, even before Emmett made himself a hero, he still liked him anyway.

Casual Person

Question: In the real world, during the "Let's put It All Back" sequence, the son's creations are set up fighting Micro Managers. When the dad is rearranging everything, he never seems to do anything with them. If they weren't part of the Lego displays he built, why didn't he change them?

Chosen answer: Either they were part of another set (which since in Finn's imagination they're owned by Lord Business so them being part of another set could be possible) or he just didn't get round to them. We only see him destroy some creations, not all.

Mistakes

In the scene where Emmet drives to work, you get Emmet's view of the dashboard with his hand switching on the radio. The car at that moment has no front window, perhaps to make the car look bigger from the inside.
