‘Lego’ is shockingly, hilariously subversive

If the Looney Toons team had played with plastic blocks that snap together, “The Lego Movie” is the kind of surreal subversion they might have made. Their Looney heirs, the guys behind the original “Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs” (Phil Lord and Christopher Miller), have turned a 90-minute exercise in product placement into a trippy clarion call for creativity – for not following “the instructions” of these fiendishly simple Danish building blocks.
