The first LEGO movie was smart, cute, snappy. This one starts out good, but what kind of parents allow the kid sister in the family to just destroy everything her big brother does forever?
So the basis of the plot is that the little boy who is the author of the Lego universe has his kid sister come down into the same space of the house with her Duplos, and repeatedly she just trashes everything cool that the little boy does. She steals some of the Legos and makes them do "girly" things. From the perspective of the Legos, they are just randomly being attacked, and there is no use in building anything attractive because the Duplo aliens will just show up and rip it apart. Thus, over time, the Legos develop a nihilistic Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome outlook that is actually portrayed rather humorously.
I know a little girl who needs to be put on serious KP duty until she is 15 or until she learns the term "personal space". Otherwise, look for her husband to show up in the "Dead Bedrooms" subreddit 20 years from now whining about how ignored and taken for granted he is. For that matter, her kids will be on the "Raised By Narcissists" subreddit complaining of same. But I digress.
So this just becomes repetitive and predictable and ultimately, boring. There are a few great one liners from the Lego cast,but it just can't fill up two hours. This could have been a really good half hour short in the Pixar tradition.

The Third Part
Father forces Finn to play with his sister Bianca. Everything is not so awesome with the arrival of her Duplo aliens. It's five years later and only Emmet continues to see everything is awesome. The world is an apocalyptic H.E. double hockey sticks. When Lucy and others are kidnapped by the aliens, Emmet finally see that everything is not awesome. He goes to rescue her and encounters action adventurer Rex Dangervest.
This should be the Third Part. Let me explain. When the movie opens with the introduction of the sister, I figured out the story line of this sequel. Mostly that's what this is except it unnecessarily advances five years. It should have stayed in the beginning. Bianca kidnaps Finn's figures and force them to have a tea party. Sibling rivalry ensues until everything is awesome again. The Armamageddon and storage bin premise gets into a different aspect which needs its own movie. The kids pushed to give up Lego should happen in part three. I still love the characters, the animation, the concept, and the joy of it all. It's still fun. If it doesn't have five years later, everything would be awesome.

Everything is awesome
The macrocosm effects the microcosm and brother must share his Legos with his sister who destroys his world into an apocalypse as some characters get absconded to the "Sistar System" filled with pop music and glitter. As Legos fight for their freedom in their new world, they hear rumors of Armageddon, pronounced Our-momma-get-in. When that happens they will enter the 'Bin or Store-age."
It was a fun production which spoofs society and films. The same type of humor as before. Don't get too hung up on the plot. Will Ferrell is briefly in the film, short enough as to spoil it like he did "Holmes and Watson."
