Saw this at a press screening a week ago and really enjoyed it. Feels like Wreck-It Ralph's TOY STORY 2-- it makes use of time having passed to great effect, comes at the core Ralph/Vanellope relationship from a new direction, pushes the hapless Ralph to make a really bad decision, and delivers some laughs and tears.Recommended.

I may take myself to a matinee of this, on a school day.

Looking forward to this.  A little wary of sequels as I felt burned by "Incredibles 2" which wasn't as clever or intriguing as the original.  But each movie is different.

We were a bit disappointed by Incredibles 2 as well.

I saw this the day after Thanksgiving. Thought it was okay overall.

I felt that SUMMER WARS did a better job covering the same "breaking the Internet" territory as this movie.

Saw it today. Lots of fun. The Sta-Puft Marshmallow Ralph was maybe the weakest part. So many scenes from the trailers not in the movie! And seriously DARK for a kids movie!!

I wonder what players of Slaughter Race made of Vanellope?

One song in the film reminded me of this:

Coca-Cola Grand Theft Auto Commercial

I kept glancing at my nine year old when we saw it, and told her if anything got too intense she could put her head down by me. She did once or twice, but liked the message.

"Big Ralph" was both creepy and gross, I thought--why not just merge into one thing? 'Cause ugh.

Y'know, I'm guessing some players of Slaughter Race might get a kick out of Vanellope being such a sharp visual and stylistic contrast to the rest of the game. And her glitch gives her a weird and useful ability inside the game, so there's that.

Took my 3 kids to see it, and we all agreed is wasn't quite as good or as funny as the original, but still enjoyable.

The giant Ralph was just beyond icky.  All those thousands (millions?) of little Ralphs made my skin crawl!!
