QUICK TAKE:
Animated Action/Comedy: In a world where characters and everything else are made of LEGOs, Batman must contend not only with his own commitment issues, but also a new police commissioner who wants to rely less on him in dealing with Gotham's various villains, including the Joker.
PLOT:
In the city of Gotham, there doesn't seem to be anyone happier than Batman (voice of WILL ARNETT). And that's because the superhero loves his job of routinely dispatching the city's various villains, such as The Joker (voice of ZACH GALIFIANAKIS). Deep down, however, Batman, a.k.a. ultra rich Bruce Wayne, has commitment issues in every aspect of his life, something not lost on his longtime and faithful butler, Alfred (voice of RALPH FIENNES), who realizes this stems from Bruce being orphaned at a young age following the murder of his parents.

Not only does he not have a significant other in his personal life, but he also prefers to work alone and won't even give the Joker the satisfaction of thinking there's an adversarial relationship between them with the villain being Batman's number one enemy. Things change, however, when Commissioner Gordon resigns and is replaced by his adult daughter, Barbara Gordon (voice of ROSARIO DAWSON). Bruce is so blindsided by her beauty that, in a moment of being distracted, he agrees to adopt orphan Dick Grayson (voice of MICHAEL CERA), but isn't happy to hear that she wants their police operations to rely less on the Caped Crusader and more on her new plan to fight crime.

When the Joker surrenders too easily, Batman realizes something is amiss and has Dick -- now in the guise of being his over-eager sidekick, Robin -- steal a device from Superman (voice of CHANNING TATUM) that will project the Joker into an interdimensional prison known as the Phantom Zone. Little does Batman realize, however, that such a move is exactly what the Joker wanted.

And it's not long before he and Gotham's regular villains such as Bane (voice of DOUG BENSON) and Harley Quinn (voice of JENNY SLATE) are joined by an array of famous villains now free from the Phantom Zone, including the likes of King Kong, Sauron (voice of JEMAINE CLEMENT) and Voldemort (voice of EDDIE IZZARD) among many others. From that point on, Batman must allow others to help him battle those villains and save Gotham from ruin.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
If they liked "The LEGO Movie" or are fans of anything related to Batman they probably will.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG
For rude humor and some action.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
