My wife, five year old daughter and I went to this movie and loved it. For my wife and I, it was a clever movie that integrated many of our favorite games and snacks from the 80s. For my daughter, it was simply a fun movie with great visuals. Normally, she gets a little sleepy during movies, but she was excited and having fun throughout the movie. We all left feeling good. It is a must see family movie.

This film was yet another great family film by Disney! With that being said, it is no surprise to see the adult humor that is in this film. It was truly a heart touching tale and was a most enjoyable experience. Plenty of retro gaming elements are present to rekindle even the older generations of gamers, from pong to q-bert, to sonic the hedgehog and beyond. Take your family to see this film!

9 year old daughter wanted to go see this with her friend - caught me off guard it was about the world inside of arcade video games.
Quite the reminiscent blast from the past game references that the kids don't catch - but they had a great time and I did too.
I don't like 3D movies, but this one was very enjoyable.
Very creative, unique spin on words and references....John Lasseter had a part in production, who was a founder of Pixar....so you know it's a great movie!

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.

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.
