Movie Info

Ralph (John C. Reilly) is tired of being overshadowed by Fix-It Felix (Jack McBrayer), the "good guy" star of their game who always gets to save the day. But after decades doing the same thing and seeing all the glory go to Felix, Ralph decides he's tired of playing the role of a bad guy. He takes matters into his own massive hands and sets off on a game-hopping journey across the arcade through every generation of video games to prove he's got what it takes to be a hero. On his quest, he meets the tough-as-nails Sergeant Calhoun (Jane Lynch) from the first-person action game Hero's Duty. But it's the feisty misfit Vanellope von Schweetz (Sarah Silverman) from the candy-coated cart racing game, Sugar Rush, whose world is threatened when Ralph accidentally unleashes a deadly enemy that threatens the entire arcade. Will Ralph realize his dream and save the day before it's too late? -- (C) Disney

Disney's found a lot to play with here, but you may find yourself itching to take the controls.

You'll either love it or you'll admire it, while wishing it would calm down and, I don't know, maybe pick up a book for a while.

It's a cool game, to be sure, but watching someone else play it gets old after a while.

For anyone with a grade-schooler and a free Saturday, it's a pretty safe and painless bet. And a great excuse to go up to the attic later and see if you can dig out your old Atari 2600.

Unlike the Pixar films toward which it aspires-which marry sophisticated conceits to straightforward storylines-Wreck-It Ralph consistently gets lost in its own intricate plot mechanics.

A family feelgood movie that amuses and send a heartwarming message!

Reilly gives warmth to a big lug who only seems to destroy anything he touches (maybe somebody's goofy and kinda lost dad?), while Silverman gives understandable yearning to a soul aching to belong (a little girl lost?) ... can these two from broken homes fix the other's pain? Over this quandry is an animated love-in visit to vid games of old, which helps to soften the sensitive subject matter. Pretty damn good if you ask me.
