We took our two kids and two of their friends to see WIR. The concept was very funny and it was fun explaining to all of the kids the way video games appeared and were played in "the beginning". Very good family movie.

When I first saw promotional posters for this movie, I was scratching my head wondering what in the world is Wreck-It Ralph. When the trailer was finally released, I went from what in the world is Wreck-It Ralph to I MUST SEE THIS MOVIE. I took my daughter on opening weekend and she loved it. I was in complete agreement, it has a lot of heart (it was hard not to cry at some parts). All in all, it was definitely worth the price of admission. You won't be disappointed. Oh, and just so I don't have to write another review. I took her to see it again the following weekend. It was even better the second time around.

True, I was there for the advent of "Pac-Man" and faithfully rode my bike to the arcade every chance I got to battle it out with my "besties" for a "Top Ten" score, but OH this movie took me back. In my mind's eye, I kept interchanging "Donkey Kong" and "Wreck-it-Ralph" but it was such an engaging story, I just went with it and enjoyed the ride. I wondered a few times if Seth Rogen was even alive when Pac-Man came out, then later found out John C. Reilly actually voiced "Ralph". I was pleasantly surprised! The story is well-plotted and lends vision to the age-old pondering of children, such as, "Could Superman beat up Mighty Mouse?" and "What if all the video game characters knew each other in real life?" Well, this film lets you take a journey down that very path. My personal favorite was at the "Bad-Anon" meeting when Ralph admitted he wanted to be "good" and Clyde (the orange ghost) turns into (the blue ghost on the run from Pac-Man). Ha ha - I loved it! Don't miss it! =)

This movie was everything I wanted it to be plus so much more. I saw this with my girlfriend who didn't play as many video games as a kid like I did, and she has just as much fun watching. The storyline is super cute but is sprinkled with tons of throwback jokes and awesome game scenarios.
Even a little celeb role for Skrillex for all you electronic music buffs. Hands down a great movie to see in theaters. I rarely see movies while they're showing and this is definitely one I'd recommend. Great for date night, family night or just on a whim. You won't be let down.

It was a great movie. My five year old sin enjoyed it. My childhood playing video games was in the 80's. I was hoping to see more characters from video games that were part of the story thn just to be in the background. Otherwise, I did enjoy the storyline & would definitely recommend watching it.
