Couch Critic: Wreck-It Ralph

4 out of 5 stars

In Brief

Really, why hasn’t someone used this idea sooner? It’s fun for kids and perfect for adults who grew up in the ’80s. If you love classic video games the premise will be enough to keep you entertained, and even if you don’t the story here is actually really good. The voice-casting choices are spot-on and the Vanellope character, while under most contexts would be syrupy-sweet-annoying, is actually quite cute and fun to root for. This is a damn good cartoon. It has heart, is creative, offers a sufficiently interesting plot line, and blends in some rad nostalgia for the “big kids.”
