QUICK TAKE:
Animated Action/Comedy: A video game character leaves his arcade game in hopes of becoming a hero rather than the villain he's played for the past thirty years.
PLOT:
For the past 30 years, Wreck-It Ralph (voice of JOHN C. REILLY) has been the villain in the arcade game "FIX-IT FELIX JR!" where he wrecks a several story building, only to have the game's hero, Fix-It Felix (voice of JACK McBRAYER), repair all of the damage with his magic hammer. But Ralph has grown disillusioned with his role, especially since once the game play is done for the day, he must retreat to the nearby brick dump for the night, all while Felix enjoys the congratulations and company of the game's other characters.

Even his support group of fellow arcade game villains can't boost his spirits. But when one of the building residents says he'll be welcome at their parties if he can prove he can be a hero by winning a medal, Ralph goes rogue and leaves his game. When he comes across a soldier character from the arcade game "Hero's Duty," he takes that man's place and fights alongside platoon leader Sergeant Calhoun (voice of JANE LYNCH), blasting the voracious and deadly Cy-Bug monsters.

He manages to secure a medal by breaking the rules, but when a newly hatched Cy-Bug attacks him, he ends up losing control of a spacecraft and accidentally flies out of "Hero's Duty" and into "Sugar Rush," a pastel, candy-based, cart racing game. There, he runs into Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of SARAH SILVERMAN), a girl who's considered a glitch by others and thus not allowed to compete in the big race overseen by the game's ruler, King Candy (voice of ALAN TUDYK).

Ralph and Vanellope's goals collide when she uses his medal as an entry coin into the race. From that point on, he tries to get that back, all while Felix tries to find Ralph and thus avoid their game being shut down, all while Sgt. Calhoun shows up, knowing full well the potential ramifications of the escaped Cy-Bug on those inside the "Sugar Rush" game.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
It's a good bet many will.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG
For some rude humor and mild action/violence.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
