Wreck-It Ralph (2012)

Rated: PG - Runtime: 101 min
tesg's Rating: Two and one half stars (out of four)

I realize this is a kids movie, okay?  I get that.

But considering it's marketing largely revolves around the idea of an 8-bit video game from the eighties, a game that would have been played by people now in their forties, did it have to be SUCH a kids movie?  A LITTLE kids movie???

The movie actually takes place largely in a game called "Sugar Rush", a girly version of Mario Kart.  It may set the record for product placement of food items in a single film.  And Jane Lynch's character ends up married to Jack McBrayer's character at the end.  Imagine the irony.

But the little kids in the audience (and there were a LOT of them) really seemed to enjoy it.
