The family and I had some pre- Thanksgiving fun at the Ralph Breaks the Internet screening. The kids were pressed for this one, and it did not disappoint. This is Wreck-It Ralph 2 essentially. You don’t need to see the first one to enjoy the second one. I did not enjoy the first one.
All of us [the family] agree that the movie was really funny.
SYNOPSIS: “Ralph Breaks the Internet” leaves Litwak’s video arcade behind, venturing into the uncharted, expansive and thrilling world of the internet—which may or may not survive Ralph’s wrecking. Video game bad guy Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly) and fellow misfit Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of Sarah Silverman) must risk it all by traveling to the world wide web in search of a replacement part to save Vanellope’s video game, Sugar Rush. In way over their heads, Ralph and Vanellope rely on the citizens of the internet—the netizens—to help navigate their way, including a website entrepreneur named Yesss (voice of Taraji P. Henson), who is the head algorithm and the heart and soul of the trend-making site “BuzzzTube.”
My favorite character was Vanellope von Schweetz voiced by Sarah Silverman [far right], she is so bad @$$, she is sure of herself and kicks butt. She is a natural with the internet, you now real millennial like.
LittleCuteLips favorite character was Yesss, voiced by Taraji P. Henson [middle]. She was a boss, she knew how to work the internet like a boss and could make you go viral. As a blogger, I was incredibly amused by her character. Because algorithms. *insert eye roll*
The Man-Child’s favorite character was Shank, voiced by Gal Gadot. Shank, is a kick @$$ driver in a racing game called Slaughter Race. She is a no holds barred type of gal and I love that he loved her. She is a beast at driving, and her ride is tricked out. His favorite scene was one with Shank racing.
Babe’s favorite character was Surge Protector, voiced by Phil Johnston.
Ralph Breaks The Internet is the perfect updated version of Wreck-It Ralph. So much has changed from six years ago. From video games to social media BuzzTube. In the movie, the characters will resemble someone you know in your life. You know someone who is a quick adapter like Vanellope, but you also know someone who just does not get it like Ralph. Depending on your age the someone who does not get it may be your parent or grandparent.
Ralph Breaks The Internet is in theaters now!
