From Walt Disney Animation Studios comes an animated comedy that’s fun for the whole family! Wreck-It Ralph
takes place in an arcade game universe where video game characters roam
free amongst Game Central Station after-hours. When Wreck-It Ralph
(John C. Reilly) from the game Fix-It Felix, Jr. gets fed up with being
the bad guy, he “goes Turbo” and jumps games in order to try and earn a
medal for himself, however he clumsily releases a Cy-Bug from Hero’s
Duty which threatens the entire arcade. The film hit theaters in early
November and also stars Sarah Silverman, Jack McBrayer, and Jane Lynch,
and was directed by Rich Moore of The Simpsons and Futurama fame.
Wreck-It Ralph provides a unique common-ground
between a fun kids movie and a witty comedy riddled with one-liners and
references for the older folks. The film has an ultimately positive
message and is just simply a delightful ride from start to finish,
providing plenty of hilarious moments, suspense, and video game
references that are sure to tickle the chuckle-bone of any nerd who sees
it. For example, in the beginning of the film Ralph is at a support
group for video game villains with such bad guys as Bowser and Doctor
Eggman… it’s hilarious! And on top of all this, the animation is
spectacular and there are a boat-load of great voice over actors!
Reilly is perfect for the lead, but Silverman steals the show as the
loveable hoodlum Vanellope Von Schweetz who is a “glitch” but swears she
just has “pixelitis.” And as Ralph puts it: “Who doesn’t love a brat
with dirty hair?” And in addition to McBrayer, who plays the video game
protagonist Fix-It Felix, and Lynch, who plays the bad-ass Sergeant
Calhoun from Hero’s Duty, there are some other great voices by Alan
Tudyk, Mindy Kaling, Joe Lo Truglio, Adam Carolla, and many more!
Go see this movie. It’s enjoyable for everyone and it is truly
funny. Also, the Paperman animated short in the beginning is pretty
enjoyable as well!
