I admit, i was totally dreading this. First of all, I'm not and never was a gamer. I also have a generally (extremely) limited tolerance for Sarah Silverman. I do love John C. Reilly though, so I was bracing for a not entirely sucky, but not really good time.
Surprisingly and happily wrong! I really enjoyed this movie and so did my kids. Because I was never a gamer, a lot of the older game references would've been lost on me, but they were referenced in a context that made the jokes accessible to me and my elementary school aged kids.
I liked Sarah Silverman a lot in this, she was sharp and funny, Jane Lynch and John C. Reilly are good too, but Jack McBrayer steals the show as Fix It Felix. He is an absolute hoot, I get the honey glow just thinking about it.
