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… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Disney's found a lot to play with here, but you may find yourself itching to take the controls."
‑ Guy Lodge, Time Out
"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."
‑ Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
"Not in my wildest dreams did I ever anticipate using the word "thoughtful" to describe a fairly recent animated film."
‑ David Keyes, Cinemaphile.org
"A bubbly, buoyant treat with near-Pixar levels of heart."
‑ Eric D. Snider, Twitch
"Wreck-It Ralph is a highly original and exciting film that puts Disney Animation right up there with Pixar in terms of providing a story full of emotion, heart and energy."
‑ Jeremy Lebens, We Got This Covered
"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."
‑ Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
"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."
‑ Christopher Orr, The Atlantic
"As flawed and derivative it may be, "Wreck It Ralph" is still a very fine animated fantasy with a keen sense of creativity and wit..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Ralph's arms may be gorilla like, his fists gigantic hammers, but Reilly imbues him with rue and courtliness."
‑ Margot Harrison, Seven Days
"Hyperactive day-glo fizzy-pop family animation with a heartfelt message about staying true to yourself lurking underneath all the visual fireworks."
‑ Catherine Bray, Film4
"It's a cool game, to be sure, but watching someone else play it gets old after a while."
‑ Bilge Ebiri, New York Magazine/Vulture
"'Wreck-it Ralph' is a serious contender for the title of best animated film of the year."
‑ James Rocchi, MSN Movies
"an affectionate love note to computer games past"
‑ James Luxford, The National
"An excellent, inventive, anti-bullying adventure that may be a little too technologically advanced for older audiences."
‑ Wesley Lovell, Cinema Sight
"Once again Disney has created an immersive world that's rich with detail, populated by characters who have problems humans can identify with and characteristics that make them likable. "Wreck-It Ralph" is a winner."
‑ James Plath, Movie Metropolis
