It isn't a kids movie but then it isn't an adult movie so.... A cute movie but I was expecting more. 3D is cool and it does have a plot. Take the kids, sit back and pretend the critics know what they are talking about. Enjoyed an hour or so of no thinking.

I think I enjoyed it more than my son did. Its the best Disney movie that I've seen since Cars probably. I'm in my mid30s and this hits home right in the heart of my childhood. Everything from the 8bit characters and music, the arcades, and the classic game characters. I can't wait to own it on bluray.

They could have edited a few more things out like the 2 'passionate' kisses and some of the put-downs (althouh you had to be paying really close attention to hear them all) which were not at all necessary. I think it was a funny, creative movie with a good message. I checked Common Sense Media before I left and although it had an age '7' noted, my almost 5-yr old was ok there because of the fast talking and she couldn't catch some of the wise cracks fast enough to repeat them. She also was not as familiar with many of the 'old-school' characters to appreciate the creativity. But if you're looking for one to take all the kids (about ages 4/5 and up), you'd be ok with this choice. It is definitely action-packed for girl and boys.

Saw Wreck-It Ralph yesterday with spouse and seven-year-old son. Really enjoyed it. Entertaining story for young and old alike, and great voice talent from John C. Reilly and Jane Lynch. Very nostalgic for those of us movie goers who enjoyed the first arcade games in the very early 1980s.

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! =)
