Synopsis

Wreck-It Ralph © Walt Disney Pictures. All Rights Reserved.
Walt Disney Animation Studios and Emmy®-winning director Rich Moore (TV’s “The Simpsons,” “Futurama”) take moviegoers on a hilarious, arcade-game-hopping journey in “Wreck-It Ralph.” Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly, “Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby,” “Step Brothers”) is tired of being overshadowed by Fix-It Felix (voice of Jack McBrayer, “30 Rock”), the “good guy” star of their game who always gets to save the day. But after decades doing the same thing and seeing all the glory go to Felix, Ralph decides he’s tired of playing the role of a bad guy. He takes matters into his own massive hands and sets off on a game-hopping journey across the arcade through every generation of video games to prove he’s got what it takes to be a hero.

On his quest, he meets the tough-as-nails Sergeant Calhoun (voice of Jane Lynch, TV’s “Glee”) from the first-person action game Hero’s Duty. But it’s the feisty misfit Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of Sarah Silverman, “The Sarah Silverman Program”) from the candy-coated cart racing game, Sugar Rush, whose world is threatened when Ralph accidentally unleashes a deadly enemy that threatens the entire arcade. Will Ralph realize his dream and save the day before it’s too late? “Wreck-It Ralph” crashes onto the big screen on November 2, 2012, in Disney Digital 3D™ in select theaters.

Wreck-It Ralph Sequel in the Works  12/7/2012 2:27 PM EST
 Disney's "Wreck-It Ralph", which has seen a lot of success at the box office, will be getting a sequel.  John C. Reilly told Moviehole that "Some of the big muckety-muckets at the studio, who I just saw the other night, were like 'We're talking sequel!'" Not only did Reilly comment about the film, but so did the director, Rich Moore.  "We'll really come up with something good for Mario to do [in ...  More>>


Wreck-It Ralph Theatrical Review


Whether you've ever heard of the video game "Fix-It Felix" or played it when you were young, Wreck It Ralph provides a fun time in this adventure for the whole family. Filled with action and comedy the animated film grabs you from the start and involves you in a tale of wonderment and hope.  From sassy to sinister, clumsy to crusher the characters are likable and engaging.
 
Ralph (John C. Reilly) has been toiling in the game "Fix-It Felix" for years never getting the recognition he deserves for his part in entertaining youngsters.  Each day as the machines get turned off and the owner of the video arcade leaves, the tenants of their tall apartment house in the video game go to the roof. Here they make a presentation to Felix (Jack McBrayer) the repairman while Ralph gets tossed off onto the ground. On this one occasion however, a private party is being held to celebrate 30 years of the game while uninvited Ralph wanders off to the pile of bricks he made from tearing down the building.
 
Forlorn and hoping that he could be a good guy by night, Ralph barges into the private party where his clumsiness and size makes a mess of things. Still determined to be the star he goes looking for a game that will accept him for himself.  When he bumps into Vanellope (Sarah Silverman) in the "Sugar Rush" game and finds she happens to have a similar problem, they team up to find a way to change everything.
 
The film moves along at a fast pace with Ralph getting help from "Hero's Duty" Sergeant Calhoun (Jane Lynch) who helps the Wreck-it man when creepy cyber bugs attack in "Sugar Rush".  Here the action mounts with Calhoun and her platoon taking lead knocking off the treacherous bugs while Ralph and Vanellope work out their troubles.
 
The very imaginative script under the helm of director Rich Moore (The Simpsons Movie) gets played out extremely well keeping even the littlest of moviegoers intrigued and laughing.  He works in more aggressive characters for us older folks adding another level to the story so the whole family benefits.  Choosing familiar voices like that of John C. Reilly as Ralph and Jayne Lynch playing the tough Sergeant Calhoun creates a lot of chuckles when they are on screen in their animated characters.
 
In my estimation however, Sarah Silverman takes the medal for the most hilarious character in animation, Vanellope.  This cute little girl with the sassy personality steals the show.  Keeping the funny remarks at a high level throughout the film, it's hard to take your eyes and ears off the impudent youngster and not crack a smile.  Personality wise a dead ringer for little Agnes from Despicable Me, the character Vanellope easily wins the audience over with her big eyes and lovable charm.
 
The game representations are extremely good showing most of the characters that were the forerunners of arcade machines.  Characters like Q*bert, Pac Man, Mario, Kong, Frog, Sonic, and many more have dropped the pixels and are brought to life in smooth CGI.  While they are not the center of the film, they add the nostalgia for most of us who have put an amazing amount of quarters in their coin slots. 
 
Wreck-it Ralph has been rated PG for some rude humor and mild action/violence.  Be sure not to watch too many of the different movie trailers that are available on line or you will get a little too much information that may spoil the surprises.
 
FINAL ANALYSIS:  A terrific family adventure with a nostalgic blast. (A)
