Wreck it Ralph

Wreck it Ralph, a movie made for kids, has a lot of story points that are eerily related to another kid movie I saw 12 years ago. 

Both movies feature a man with amazing abilities who travels to a strange place, befriends an obnoxious kid, and enters said brat into a race in order to get what he needs.

Only in Wreck it Ralph, we replace Obi Wan Kenobi with Keneth from 30 Rock, and we replace Padme with the antagonist on Glee.

Apart from being far too similar to Episode One, Wreck it Ralph was cute. It wasn't funny, but it sure as heck wasn't Hotel Transylvania. My husband puts it in the same category as Megamind, (a category below Despicable Me.

It doesn't have a lot of humor for adults, despite using games adults are familiar with, (although, the teenagers in front of me laughed at absolutely everything!) "But," (to randomly quote Marty McFly,) "your kids are gonna love it."
