Movies & More reviewer John Gillispie shares his thoughts on Disney's "Ralph Breaks the Internet," which is rated PG and available on DVD.
Ralph (voiced by John C. Reilly) is loving his life at the Arcade, but his best friend Vanellope (Sarah Silverman) is getting bored with the regular routine at the beginning of the animated film "Ralph Breaks the Internet."
When Vanellope's arcade game is damaged, she and Ralph sneak onto the Internet to find and bid on a replacement part.
Ralph looks for ways to earn the money to pay for the replacement part and can't wait to get back home so that everything can return to the normal routine.
However, Vanellope has found a new racing game on the Internet that allows her to use her driving skills in a way that her old arcade game cannot. She is inspired by female racer Shank (Gal Gadot).
"Ralph Breaks the Internet" offers an important lesson about friendship. Ralph has to learn that supporting a friend's hopes and dreams is important even if it means there will be less time to spend with that friend in the future.
Vanellope learns that honesty is important even when you think your friend might be disappointed in your plans for the future.
"Ralph Breaks the Internet" offers plenty of adventure and some humor. There are also a few amusing scenes involving the Disney Princesses, who offer Vanellope some advice on how to become inspired to sing about what she really wants out of life. Later, the Princesses use their special skills to come to Ralph's rescue.
Other celebrities who voice characters in "Ralph Breaks the Internet" include Taraji P. Henson, Jane Lynch, Jack McBrayer, Alfred Molina and Ed O'Neill.
