My kids and I attended the media preview for Disney’s Wreck-It Ralph last night.
We loved it!
This animated movie, which comes out today, features the voice cast of talented folks including John C. Reilly, Sarah Silverman, Jack McBrayer and Jane Lynch. Rated PG, the film was directed by Rich Moore with John Lasseter as Executive Producer and is about a video game “bad guy” who leaves his own game to earn a medal to prove he’s a hero in order to move from sleeping in a brick pile to the penthouse with the other characters in his game.
Even with a somewhat predictable story-line, the film is very entertaining with both laugh out loud and tender moments. I loved the “bad guy” affirmation:
“I’m bad and that’s good. I will never be good and that’s not bad. There’s no one I’d rather be then me.”
Of course, we learn through a special friendship he forms with another video game outcast, that Ralph (John C. Reilly) is indeed a good guy. But we kinda knew that all along. The gems in this film come at moments along the journey (with a few poop jokes thrown in for good measure).
Check out the trailer here:
I’ve also included some fun activity sheets for the kids which you can download here. Enjoy!
I attended a movie premiere for the media at no-charge in order to provide a review to my readers. No other compensation was received and all thoughts and opinions are my own.
