This movie was awesome! It's what you would get if you took Pixar's Toy Story concept and applied it to video games instead of toys. It's a glimpse of what video game characters do when we're not playing them, along with several other themes that make for a great story and lovable characters.
Any gamer who grew up in the Nintendo era is probably going to love this movie. There are lots of cameo appearances from other games, though that's just a part of what made this movie so great. Lots of laughs, action, and a bit of drama make this great for gamers of all ages!

The kids didn't fall asleep, they were glued to the screen, 7 & 9. I enjoyed it although not as good as Hotel Transylvania, but better than Frankenweenie. Animation movies are the "IN" movies it seems like, and this one was fun to watch. My son 9 just sat there eating his candy watching the movie, didn't hear him laugh too much. My daughter 7 was laughing very loudly and yelling at the screen once in a while. She screamed "Ewwwwww" during a kissing scene that made everyone laugh in the theater.
All around it was very enjoyable and recommend it to everyone from people going to the movies for a date, to parents like myself taking your kids to the movies.

My whole family really enjoyed Wreck-It Ralph. This movie isn't much like the way it is being advertised. It is funny in parts, but it is mostly a heartwarming tale about outcasts, being true to who you are, and the potential that lies in all of us.
Some of the themes and messages younger kids may not understand, but although she sat intently watching, my tween (11) loved it and caught all they were trying to portray. This movie should definitely be on your go see list. Enjoy!!

This movie appeals to the young and their parents! The old school famous video game characters who popped up throughout the movie kept me entertained & briefly sent me back to an innocent place in my childhood. There were a lot of good laughs as well as an important message. The 3D graphics and concept were absolutely brilliant. Im so glad my daughter talked me into this one. :O)

Great story told in a way that is reminiscent of the great Pixar stories. John Lasseter's finger prints are indelibly stamped all over the narrative. The story is poignant form an adult point of view and filled with enough eye candy to get all the oohs and aahs you'll want from your kids.
I loved seeing all of my own childhood gaming "friends" coming back for some screen time. My daughter and I had to sit down in front of the computer back home so she could learn about Q-bert and others.
