Ralph Breaks the Internet Movie Review
In Ralph Breaks the Internet, the best friends leave the comforts of Litwak’s arcade in an attempt to save her game, Sugar Rush. Their quest takes them to the vast, uncharted world of the internet where they rely on the citizens of the internet—the Netizens—to help navigate their way. Lending a virtual hand are Yesss (voice of Taraji P. Henson), the head algorithm and the heart and soul of the trend-making site “BuzzzTube,” and Shank (voice of Gal Gadot), a tough-as-nails driver from a gritty online auto-racing game called Slaughter Race, a place Vanellope wholeheartedly embraces—so much so that Ralph worries he may lose the only friend he’s ever had.
Featuring the voices of John C. Reilly as the voice of Ralph, and Sarah Silverman as the voice of Vanellope.
When a piece of Vanellope’s arcade game breaks, Litwak’s arcade manager puts the doomed “out of order” sign on Sugar Rush. Desperate to find the single piece available on the web, the pair head into the black hole of the internet. However, they soon realize what a wide world the web really is, and after making the mistake of bidding way too high on that single arcade piece, they find themselves in a pickle to make money fast! That’s where Yesss and her trendy site come into play.
Ralph Breaks the Internet has a ton of comedy and lovable moments too. My favorite moment would, of course, be the Disney princess scene which is definitely one of the film’s highlights. And I love that it’s clearly in the 21st century with trendy and recognizable moments that we all can relate to today.
The film is rated PG and is perfect for families and children. Just a word of caution – there is a cringe-worthy scene towards the end when Wreck-it Ralph is multiplied into thousands and it might be a bit scary and drawn out for your littlest family members. Overall, I really loved the film and seeing some of my favorite characters all in one movie! PS – stay for the credits! It’s worth it. 😉
