The Return of the Character Comedy

There was a time long ago when bit parts in great comedies were well written and well executed. It's back. Every detail of Wreck-It Ralph is superb - well written, well acted, well drawn. It's as rich in treats as the land of the game Sugar Rush it portrays. Kids and adults will like it. But that's an understatement. From the "aw shucks" country sincerity of Fix-it Felix whose "affection" is "rebuffed" despite his "honeydew" glow, to the full-metal-jacket starship trooper beauty is always speaks in awkwardly dire hyperbole, to to Sour Bill, the superbly glum herald of the kingdom of Sugar Rush, everything in Wreck-It Ralph has been lovingly rendered. It's chock full ofclever references back to, well, every computer game ever. But it also harkens back to such landmark films The Wizard of Oz - not just in references the O-E-O guards of the wicked witch - but also in the lavish attention to detail that made old-school films great. This is comic film making at its finest.

Retro & heart warming

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.

I took four kids to this movie ages 8 to 14 and everyone including the adults loved the movie. There was nothing in the movie that I disliked and we all would go see it again. I just can't believe there were not more people in the theatre for opening weekend!!! A definate must for kids!

A Solid Disney Effort

First... love, love, love the short before the film. This movie is a great kid's movie, an entertaining adult's movie, and a nostalgia trip for anyone that grew up with video games and/or frequented arcades. Disney's attention to detail is impeccable. For those with small children, there is some violence, use of futuristic lazer guns, and a few scary scenes. There's also some play on language such as someone being told "Don't be a ***** willow."

Brilliant Concept

By Mitchelle12

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)
