Wreck-It Ralph

An existential crisis finds its home in a video arcade. After 30 years of playing the bad guy to Fix-It Felix (voiced by Jack McBrayer), the oversized Wreck-It Ralph (John C. Reilly) abandons ship and ventures to other games in the hopes of a better life. He stumbles into Sugar Rush, a candy land kart racing game, where he befriends fellow misfit Vanellope (Sarah Silverman). Director Rich Moore creates a make-believe world full of retro games, like Q*bert, along with more familiar fare, and plenty of its humour translates well for an audience acquainted with video games past (and for the younger crowd, there are many “duty/doody” puns). Snappy dialogue and smart jokes and a well structured and surprisingly touching story keeps Wreck-It Ralph moving at a fast pace. Bonus: all sub-plots are wrapped up neatly by the movie’s conclusion. -Molly Segal
