'The Lego Movie' and Adolescence in Pop Culture

This week on Pop Culture Happy Hour, NPR Monkey See's Linda Holmes, Trey Graham, Stephen Thompson and Glen Weldon talk about "The Lego Movie." Without spoiling the plot, they'll discuss why they love the film--and why it's beloved by critics and a box office success. Stephen will soon be the father of a teenager, so they'll take a look at how teens are portrayed in popular culture. Do books, movies and television accurately capture the pain of adolescence-- or exaggerate teen angst? All that plus What's Making Us Happy this week.
