Critics reviews

“Sugar rush” is an apt description for Wreck-It Ralph, which has great highs but ultimately feels as undernourishing and frantic as an afternoon lost to Mega Man. Best to savor the visual gags: Especially in scenes depicting Felix (Jack McBrayer) and his family, the Pixar-less team has great fun mimicking a Nintendo-ish, herky-jerky animation style.

This relationship—more father-daughter than anything—accesses a rare degree of emotion for any movie, never mind the animated ones: Vanellope just wants to win the race and not feel like a “glitch.” Ralph has confidence issues as well. Their mutual bonding ratchets up the drama, softening Silverman’s snark and magnifying Reilly’s dignity.

Moore can’t keep Ralph on anything like an even keel, ricocheting him between consoles before landing him in Sugar Rush, forcing the film to milk its brand-named wonk-factory sight gags (Nesquiksand, a Diet Coke volcano, you get it).
