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.
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.
