Overview

An 8-bit video-game character attempts to shed his bad-guy image by escaping into a popular first-person shooter, but inadvertently wreaks havoc in the video-game universe by freeing a digital villain who can only be contained with the help of a most unlikely ally in this colorful animated adventure. Wreck-It Ralph voice of John C. Reilly is the arch nemesis of Fix-It Felix voice of Jack McBrayer, one of the most beloved video-game icons of all time. In a noble bid to prove he is more than the sum of his programming, Ralph sneaks from his cozy retro home into a highly advanced combat game featuring battle-hardened soldier Sergeant Calhoun voice of Jane Lynch, and strives to prove his bravery by winning a medal. In the process, however, Ralph accidentally frees the greatest threat the video-game world has ever seen. But all hope is not lost, because if Ralph can just convince unpredictable cart racer Vanellope von Schweetz voice of Sarah Silverman to help set things right, perhaps he can finally unleash his inner hero and save the arcade from certain destruction.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Jason Buchanan
As producers of animated films pander shamelessly to parents in an effort to sell tickets, it's easy to turn cynical when presented with a movie that wears its retro-gaming influences as proudly as Rich Moore's Wreck-It Ralph. Yet lest aging gamers grow wary at the thought of filmmakers exploiting their nostalgic love of arcades to keep the Hollywood gravy train rolling, it pays to note that Wreck-It Ralph tells its warmhearted story with a healthy dash of knowing humor and a keen eye for detail -- making it both a colorful adventure with a positive message for kids and an enjoyable trip down memory lane for parents. Wreck-It Ralph voice of John C. Reilly is the archnemesis of Fix-It Felix Jr. Jack McBrayer, one of the most beloved video-game icons of all time. In a noble bid to prove he is more than the sum of his programming, Ralph sneaks away from his cozy retro home into a highly advanced combat game featuring battle-hardened soldier Sergeant Calhoun Jane Lynch, and strives to prove his bravery by winning a medal. In the process, however, Ralph accidentally frees a swarm of rapidly multiplying bugs that threaten the existence of the entire arcade. But all hope is not lost, because if Ralph can just convince unpredictable go-kart racer Vanellope von Schweetz Sarah Silverman to help set things right, perhaps he can finally unleash his inner hero and save the arcade from certain destruction. At some point or another in their lives, regardless of how successful they are in their chosen fields, almost all adults have felt as if they're powerless to transcend the labels placed on them by society. It's just a part of growing up, and the way we deal with it can often be a good indicator of our maturity; the more childish among us may simply kick and scream that we're unable to affect any real change in our lives, while the more practical may view that realization as an opportunity to try to get to the place where we feel like we need to be. By fashioning their story around a nine-foot-tall, 600-pound video-game villain who longs to break out of his bad-guy role, Wreck-It Ralph screenwriters Jennifer Lee and Phil Johnston endear us to a character whom almost everyone can relate to, and they send him on an adventure that's visually dazzling yet also richly textured in both narrative and emotional terms. Ralph may be a bit of a brute, but he's a teddy bear at heart, and for that reason we want to see him succeed at proving that his job does not define his entire life. Meanwhile, as Ralph attempts to help Vanellope realize her dream of becoming a bona fide race-car driver, the screenplay's astute observations about chasing our goals even when others strive to convince us that they're impossible actually resonate. These valuable lessons are delivered in a vibrant, colorful context that's a visual treat for audiences of all ages even if the 3D isn't very effective, and if the screenwriters seem to fumble a bit by having Wreck-It Ralph return home one too many times when he should be moving forward, they can be forgiven because they balance these scenes well with an important side plot involving Felix and Jane Lynch's haunted first-person-shooter hero Calhoun while delivering big laughs and genuine excitement. Speaking of Lynch, Wreck-It Ralph features a supremely talented voice cast who all fire on full cylinders while bringing their characters to life. Multi-talented Reilly makes his short-fused protagonist a lovable hulk whose unwavering loyalty to Vanellope reveals his true depths, Silverman effectively straddles the line between annoying and endearing as the little racer who could, and McBrayer succeeds at making the love-struck Felix more shortsighted than bigheaded as his adversarial relationship with Ralph evolves into something a bit more amiable. The supporting players all bring energy and enthusiasm to their performances as well -- especially in the case of Alan Tudyk's ostentatious King Candy, whose determination to ensure that Vanellope doesn't race may not be as benevolent as appearances suggest. Through it all, the animators fill Wreck-It Ralph with playful sight gags such as the stuttering movement of 8-bit characters and smart video-game references that will delight savvy viewers, but aren't so inclusive that they can't be enjoyed by non-gamers. It's as much fun as a childhood trip to the arcade, and it may even open the door to a few rounds of classic gaming with the wee ones who think that a trip to the arcade is all about winning tickets. So should you happen to find yourself instinctively reaching into your pocket for another quarter when the credits start to roll, don't be ashamed for wanting the fun to continue.

    This was a great family night DVD. A good DVD for teaching viewers to go for their goal or dream as well as to have a plan to reach the goal/dream and do not allow other people's doubts hold you back. Do not allow a glitch to keep you from achieving your dream. Enjoyed the storyline and the main characters of Wreck-It Ralph and hope to see more of this type of animation. :) :)

    Since my wife and I both love seeing animated movies together, and since we both enjoy video games (especially me), it was decided that we absolutely had to see this movie! We had received a Regal Gift card a while before this came out and we actually hoarded what was on it to see this and The Hobbit once it came out as well.

    Going into this movie we figured we'd enjoy it because we already had some people we knew say it was awesome, and we certainly did love it, from start to finish! It was very well done and very well voiced! Plus, of course, like most animated movies, it had a good moral at the end.

    My favorite part, as was many people's favorite part I'm sure, was the meeting with all the various video game villains...that part was cool. It was neat seeing all of those actual video game villains in that part, as well as all the others at different points throughout the movie. All around, the movie was great fun and suitable for most any age. I highly recommend this one! I for one will be picking this up upon it's release...definitely collection worthy!
