My brother and fiancé both said they wish Sugar Rush was a real game. I think I would prefer Hero's Duty.

Best line of the film for me was Ralph calling Pacman a 'dot sucker'. I also liked the 'Sheng Long was here' and 'no campers' graffiti.

I thought sugar rush was the weakest part of the film. The setting got tiresome as did the characters ..... yes, I know it was always going to be a cutsie poo movie.

I thought the storyline actually picked up when the video game references lessened after the first third or so of the film - although I loved seeing them, don't get me wrong! The Sugar Rush setting was a bit sickly (in every sense) but I thought it was a decent film nonetheless.

I've just got back from watching it with the kids and I enjoyed it well enough. We were all enthused about it when we got home and one of the first things we did was look online to see if they had playable versions. They do. I would advise you that if you enjoy gaming then you could probably give this link a miss Disney - Wreck it Ralph games
Not really the best experience TBH. Good for the younger kids, and they are free online games but....... they made me a bit sad. :(

The plus side is that Sugar Rush works with my 360 controller, Fix it Felix Jr is a traditional keyboard affair, and Heros Duty uses the mouse.

I saw this film last week and was impressed. I love these modern animated films anyway. I really liked the storyline and, the game references, both classic and modern were great.

I loved how the characters in Wreck it Ralph's own game had what can best be described as 'video game animation'. The other classic video game references were highly amusing too.

i did enjoy it. i even wondered if i'd missed out on some whole sugar rush (real) franchise somewhere. because i also wondered why the candy cane double stripes vanished when you touched them, in a racing game...?

I've slept through some cracking films recently. Avengers, Clash of the Titans, Prometheus and loads more. I think it's the artificial popcorn smell that they waft into the seating gallery that does it. Oh, and the Smurfs.

loved Wreck it Ralph thought it was brilliant film, well written, loved the pacman level 256 crash at the end of the credits making it was because ralph nicked the cherries! clever

noticed they had modifed a donkey kong cab, don't know why they didn't do an original design but i guess it was plain obivous it was based on the donkey kong game.
