“The Lego Batman Movie” is one kids’ movie you’re going to think is funnier than they do.
“There are references to just about all depictions of the Caped Crusader over the years, and references to the references, because if you can’t be knowing about your self-referential nods, what’s the point?
“Which is a reference-heavy way of saying the film, directed by Chris McKay, is confident and smart. It knows what the audience wants before it even knows it wants it,” reports Bill Goodykoontz.
The movie opens this Friday, Feb. 10.
