In the hands of 21 Jump Street directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller the film is an irreverent joy, simultaneously cashing in on the youthful nostalgia for toys and a laugh a second gag rate that feels like an explosion at a pop-culture factory.

Clearly having fun with the low expectations garnered by the idea of a full-length film devoted to schilling for a toy, the film's directors have nonetheless created a solidly enjoyable and often hilarious 100 minutes of entertainment.

An especially clever ontological construct is having all the various LEGO game-sets represent various dimensions of the LEGO cosmos, sort of like unitary paradises.

The idea that the deadliest weapon in this Lego galaxy is glue, which will make everything permanent and unmovable, shows that childish wit is probably the purest wit of all.

It's hard to imagine a more inspired Lego film, or one less concerned with selling toys.

At least, lighthearted silliness serves as a palliative for the reflexive cynicism that emerges in viewers confronted with such a blatant corporate agenda. But the filmmakers do not have the good sense to stop there.
