Oh my gosh... If The Lego Movie is a ripoff of Midnight Express, that will mean that the two movies are completely similar to each other. For example, the stories of each movie are completely identical without any little changes, the characters have the sample personalities, moments of peril and joy are the same, and they both have an identical style. But you only have one reason why you think The Lego Movie supposedly is a ripoff of Midnight Express, and your reason is that the main character got arrested and both of them were rescued by their girlfriend. Sorry Garret, but your point is poor.
