Living in an arcade video game isn't that easy; the characters have their own problems and concerns. Like Ralph, he is so tired of hearing about all the wonderful things regarding Fix-It-Felix. Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly) has the tough job, he's supposed to break windows and buildings and tear them down, while Felix makes them good as new. Felix lives in a beautiful building, he's a hero and he has many friends, while Ralph lives in garbage and has nothing!! Ralph wants to be the hero, and he eventually discovers how to do. He jumps into another game, something they're told not to do, and that's when the trouble begins. Wreck It Ralph is a wonderful animated Disney film. 

Deep inside Ralph is a good guy, though he's very large and quick tempered, he truly wants to have friends and does not want to be the villain. His friend Vanellope wants to be part of the friendships too. She's seen as the game "glitch" and doesn't like it.
There are nice messages of friendship and love portrayed throughout the film.
The film features old video games, which will not only entertain kids, but adults as well.
There's some potty humor. For example, Vanellope invents the word "vurp," a cross between a burp and vomiting. Kids in the theater thought that was funny.
