One thing in life you cant do is disappoint the kids – well at least we try not to disappoint the kids. One simple fact here in NYC is that the movies sell out – especially great kid movies.  They’re few and far between when a good kid movie comes out.

We all knew The Lego Movie was going to be BIG! My son has been jumping up and down about the commercials on TV for weeks now. Well there is one simple way to make me look like a hero instead of a zero (if we show up and its sold out)… I simply use Fandango.

FandangoLegoCroppedTo help families and LEGO fans alike secure their seats in advance, Fandango has launched collectible THE LEGO MOVIE-themed gift cards, available at retail, exclusively at Target stores (and online at  The gift cards can be used to purchase movie tickets or Fandango’s free mobile app to more than 22,000 screens across the country.

THE LEGO MOVIE, from Warner Bros. Pictures, Village Roadshow Pictures and LEGO System A/S, stars Chris Pratt, Will Ferrell, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Nick Offerman, Alison Brie and Charlie Day, with Liam Neeson and Morgan Freeman.  The original 3D computer animated story follows Emmet, an ordinary, rules-following, perfectly average LEGO minifigure who is mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary person and the key to saving the world.   Emmet is drafted into a fellowship of strangers on an epic quest to stop an evil tyrant, a journey for which he is hopelessly and hilariously underprepared.
