Wreck-It Ralph

I was expecting more from Wreck-It Ralph.  I liked the advertised premise of an arcade game known for being the “bad guy,” who wants to become a “good guy” by leaving his game to become a hero in another.

Unfortunately, Wreck-It Ralph does not live up to its possibility.  In fact, if it were not for Sarah Silverman and Jane Lynch, who are the voices for Vanellope and Calhoun, respectively, this film would have been a dud.  They, at least, keep the adults awake with needed humor. John C. Reilly’s Ralph talks so much, it’s hard not to dose (which I did).
This is strictly for the under-10 audience.  However, it’s message that it’s okay to be bad as long as you have some tender feelings for someone, is a really weird turnabout for Disney.
I give Wreck-It Ralph a 2+ out of 5 only because of the Sarah and Jane.
