A videogame character abandons his console to prove that he has worth. Toy Story/Tron mashup that generally works despite the conceptual awkwardness of its conceit. Plenty of game in-jokes and references, some nice gags, lovely design elements, and a splendid villainous performance from Alan Tudyk, riffing on Ed Wynn. A sequel followed.
Ralph and co return to explore the internet and friendships in a confusing sequel. Not as slapstick or fun as the first film and runs out of ideas and characters about half way through. Disappointing to say the least.
