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.

This is a gamers' movie, just a little bit on the children friendly side. If you like video games and you like Disney, then check out this movie. I liked it a lot. I would like to play a game like this. Kingdom Hearts has no excuse not to use this.

I'll start by saying that my sensitive 9yr old did not like this movie and was crying at the sad part in the movie. If you have a sensitive child who doesn't like commotion in a movie this is not the movie for them.
My husband and I enjoyed the film and thought the plot was clever and entertaining. This wasn't your typical happy go lucky kids movie.
