"The LEGO Movie" is a film about a LEGO character named "Emmett" who lives in a world of conformity where everybody follows "the instructions."

Emmet learns that he is a prophesied savior who must lead other LEGO characters in stopping the evil "Lord Business" whose government/corporation owns all the voting machines, notes the Boston Globe and CNN, which called the film a "brilliant hybrid offspring of Pixar's best infused with South Park's irreverent humor."

"The LEGO Movie" satirizes summer hero action films and is a commentary on conformity, but may also be a nefarious tool to brainwash the young, according to Fox Business hosts Charles Payne and Monica Crowley, notes MediaMatters.org (video below).

"Hollywood is pushing its anti-business message to our kids," complained Payne, who failed to note that Hollywood films are produced by for-profit corporations.

Payne also complained that Lord Business "looks a little bit like Mitt Romney."

"Why is the head of a corporation where they hire people," added Payne, "People go to work, they pay their rent, they put their kids through college, they feed their families, they give to charities, why would the CEO [of a corporation] be an easy target?"

Apparently, Payne is unaware of the decades of corporate crime in America, which dates back to the 1870s, notes the San Francisco Chronicle.

Fox Business host Monica Crowley also claimed that Hollywood was "anti-capitalist," without noting that Hollywood makes billions per year via capitalism.
