Things that Make Ralph Breaks the Internet a Terrible MovieI personally don't like the movie that much but I respect your opinion if you liked it.
The Top Ten
It is obviously number 1. I get that this reason makes me angry, but this guy is trying to lie about putting Mario in that movie when it came out. This reason can be used as an evidence in the court if he ever goes to jail. I wish this reason should always be number 1, just because he lied that man (he sure as hell is lying), but because maybe the police might hear it and arrest him. And the worst part is that he made this movie look bad. Yes, he thought that he makes everyone hated his movie that he made would be good for his SJW anthem. Easily one of the worst movies ever. 2018 was such an alright year for movies, and this movie almost ruined it.
When I was watching the movie, I saw one of the characters that looked EXACTLY like Mario and it seems familiar. But this movie sucks! Why would you waste a good idea in such a butchered movie?
Well, Mario was his idea. He failed it and he will probably get grounded by his parents. He is fired! Get him the hell away from the industry!
I'd rather play Mario is Missing than watching this dumpster fire of a feature!
One major problem with the movie. Felix's biggest role would be the video game of the original movie.
I wanted more of these two, not having my nose rubbed in an ugly, uninspired, mindlessly violent "game" and its Mary Sue leader!
I guess they never appear the whole time because you only see them for a little bit.
Worse, Calhoun was pretty much replaced with that overrated new chick played by the very overrated GAL GADOT.
Good list, but I think there are other bad Disney movies that are worse than this.
It's because Rich Moore and Phil Johnson decided the last line in the original ("if that girl likes me, how bad can I be") was "problematic". Add that feminazi Pamela Ribon joining the writing team (and unfortunately voicing Snow White in that "woke" Princesses scene), and Vanellope gets to elope with that Mary Sue and be "right".
In the first movie they make duch a big deal about Ralph going "turbo", yet no one bited an eye when Vabellope literally abandoned her game forever.
It also ruined two very important things established in the original. WIR: Switching games is a very bad thing to the point of having a special euphemism ("Going Turbo"). RBTI: The aforementioned is, as they say on the Internet, "no big" or "NBD". WIR: Die outside your home game, you're gone for good. RBTI: If someone in the game you want to live in likes you, they'll simply add your code thus you will regenerate after all.
When you resort to that, it proves a lack of confidence.
What were they thinking?
Princesses eschew dresses in favor of uninspired Hot Topic crap because dresses are "oppressive"; put Ralph in one of their former dresses and make him kiss a dude because he's that scum of existence known as a "man" therefore deserves it. Also, Vanellope and Gal Gadot are automatically right about everything in every way 'cause their female. *rolls eyes*
All that shade thrown at men and the overall message that women are always right is still sexism
Sad truth: Had Mario appeared, he would have gotten caught up in it.
First movie: don't abandon your game. Everyone in a game is important.
Second movie: go live in that stupid edgy game, no one's gonna miss you in the game you were always meant to part of and in fact that's what drove the prequel.
2013: Anna wants to marry someone she "just met" (knew for just a few hours, if that). Elsa says "no". Turns out Hans really couldn't be trusted after all; Elsa was right.
2018: Vanellope wants to elope with this edgy chick she's only known for a couple hours, if that. Ralph objects, only to learn how "insecure" he was being and letting Vanellope elope was the "right" thing.
Both Disney movies, both even having several of the same people working on them.
This sequel is an insult to the original... Vanellope is bratty and annoying, and Ralph should have been helpful.
You mean how it preached against toxic masculinity while glorifying toxic feminism?
Rich Moore probably lies about including him in this movie. Same thing goes to Mario.
No, it being re-purposed into one of those cheesy "best friends" pendants nobody wears anymore (and which actually came PRE-"broken" anyway) didn't make anything better.
It was Ralph's fault for both of these events to occur.
Doesn’t help that Ralph later views it as a good thing because of the forced and obligatory goodbye scene between them near the end of this poor excuse of a “film” - Mario8
Oh my god! Vanellope is such a stupid b—ch.
"But then movie couldn't get away with its ending" Had Ralph been called out for going Turbo this time, they would have had to actually address Vanellope going Turbo in the end. But they had to frame it as "following her dream".
Between this and Vanellope permanently moving to that crappy online game, "going Turbo" was treated so lightly in this movie you wonder why it was such a big deal in the original.
One of the biggest plot holes in film history.
But then movie couldn't get away with its ending
What? Sorry your words are not clear to me could you explain it better please? - Mario8
That Ralph not wanting his young friend to become a criminal was essentially the "villain" here is appalling
Unfortunately, "no real villain" is the new "surprise villain" with Disney these days.
That stupid multi Ralph virus wasn't it, nor was was Ralph's toxic insecurity thus proving the idiotic radfem notion that men are the real villains.
Giant Ralph. Enough said.
I once- no, twice- tried to get away from someone I at those moments viewed as "clingy" and "toxic". Thought I could have my "dream life" with someone (different "someone" on each of the aforementioned occasions) who seemed to understand and related so well to me. Yes, while still getting the occasional visit or phone call with the "clingy" person. Sound familiar? Let me tell you that it was ultimately NOT a happy ending for me either time. Words cannot express how FURIOUS I am that Disney and all who love and defend this "movie" think that was the best outcome of the so-called "plot"!
People say the ending is realistic? If it's so realistic, why am I not hearing about characters from other games suddenly appearing in overrated mindless violent trash games like Grand Theft Auto while every game I play from Smash Ultimate to Dream Daddy still has every single character present and accounted for? I mean, THEY had to get bored and crave life in a different game, right? And an existing character in the other game can simply add their code, right?
And that's how every Disney animated sequel after that had the same ending.
Same with A Dogs Purpose 2 where the main characters Ethan and the dog with the Olaf the snowman voice are killed off. The dog was supposed to die and come back but dies permanently at the end. Same with every Disney movie since Infinity War. All have terrible endings since then.
She is also bratty and annoying. She kept getting on my nerves easily.
And people say "I love how [she] grew in this movie" or that it's "wonderful character development". Gag me with a toilet plunger!
Everything she did in this movie, I just wanted to kill her!
Yeah! Wreck-it Ralph is meant to be about video games, not internet!
I would have been way more impressed with them putting in more IRL games (besides Sonic and Zangief) than websites, memes, Disney characters a la Tumblr, and everything Disney had gotten their grubby white-gloved hands on as of when this cash grab was in production.
The arcade setting was actually part of the charm of the first movie.
And thinking shoehorning in a Grand Theft Auto ripoff makes up for it
Saw this comment on the "reasons why Disney should not buy Nintendo", under "they might try and make a Nintendo movie": "And put the popular female Nintendo characters (Peach, Zelda, Samus, Daisy, Rosalina, Pauline, Lucina, likely even the female versions of Robin and Corrin) in stupid Hot Topic outfits while reducing them to shallow parodies of themselves. You know, like they did to their own "princesses" in "Ralph Breaks the Internet"."
Unfortunately, that got me thinking that if Disney hadn't been so keen on promoting themselves and actually stuck with games, the Disney Princesses would have been replaced by the Nintendo gals listed (maybe others as well). And had Mario appeared, would Peach (and/or Daisy and/or Rosalina, possibly even Pauline) also been part of the Princess scene(s) we got? In which case leaving Mario (both the character and the 'verse) out was probably for the better.
And they're still making dolls of the Princesses as they appear in this wretched film (and the stupid Hot Topic influenced outfits, 'cause God forbid the dolls you bought years ago actually wear their iconic outfits)! I can only hope Disney gives up on the "comfy squad" by the time my baby niece is old enough for Barbie-type dolls.
Remember in the original where two princesses who may or may not have been Daisy and Peach (or was it supposed to be Rosalina, given the blue dress) were seen walking by in Game Central Station? THAT was a much better princess cameo!
I'll be so happy when people stop cosplaying those awful People of Walmart versions of them.
Why did you do this to me Ralph? You caused over at least 10% of all popular franchises to get ruined by Fortnite.
That game is stupid, horrible, idiot and terrible. End of story.
This is also how Fortnite references are in most popular movies nowadays, even Avengers Endgame had them.
I should have walked out of this when Ralph did Fortnite dances and watched the rest by finding the movie for free.
The only good thing I got out of this series after watching this movie in particular was the ds game from the original movie of the same name.
The Wreck it Ralph 2 x Fortnite event was just a warning to tell us that there were many references in this movie.
Does it bother anyone else how they presented Vanellope running off to become a dangerous, violent, mindless, destructive criminal as akin to a child going off to college?
So is living in a polluted, crime laden dump according to this movie.
And whoever disagrees is just "toxic", "clingy", and "pathetic".
He’s more prominent than me. Enough said. - Mayor Gene
And reinforces the toxic (yes, I said it) notion that women are automatically trustworthy. No, I'm not an angry white dude whose fragile masculine ego was shattered; I'm a woman who witnessed an abusive lesbian relationship involving a former roommate and who was eventually screwed over by a woman I thought was my best friend forever.
I don't care how "actually very kind and understanding" that new lesbian lover they gave Vanellope is. People on the Internet with the least pure of intentions tend to present such a demeanor so as to gain trust.
Such a great message... not!
Worse, the cult of Shank condones and encourages this!
Like hell I'd give up my life in a colorful world of sweets for that dump!
I almost wish Skank- Shank was in Smash Ultimate. Just so I can have all my favorite Nintendo (and Konami, and SNK) characters whoop her "perfect totally awesome" Mary Sue @$$!
Yes, this is true. Because Vanellope is addicted to this game. Now we got this not-so-hot chick named Shank. I wish someone would beat her up.
This movie is sooo stupid and boring. Why would this game exist?
Come on, weren't "Frozen" and "Zootopia"- heck, "Enchanted"- enough?
The sad part is, they might as well have used Sinfest or, worse, Natty Comics, for that scene. Same misandric virtue signaling, but without exploiting beloved characters.
The Emoji Movie made a whole lot worse.
Sure, let's reinforce the idea that real women hate dresses. Sure, let's reinforce the idea that girls should never like anything cute and sweet, but love mindless, colorless, ultra-violent garbage.
This comment brought to you by someone with a uterus, who happens to like dresses and cute stuff of her own free will, not because of "patriarchy " or other such nonsense.
I happen to BE female, and I found the overt feminism beyond annoying.
The whole movie gives off a "females are ne er wrong" attitude, what with Vanellope getting her way and how we're all supposed to see Skank- Shank- as trustworthy despite her attire and love of killing and destruction.
I'm sorry, but I saw a creepy obsession with Vanellope rather than the perfect relationship for her.
That's actually one of the reasons Shank is so ungodly popular. People think she's a lesbian, and apparently Steven Universe isn't enough for the "representation" crowd.
Just because she's possibly lesbian doesn't make a woman in her 20's being romantically involved with a 10-year-old right. Pedophilia is disgusting, no matter what. I liked the movie, but Shank was more of a mentor to Vanellope than a romantic partner. - RoseWeasley
Before this movie, more specifically around 2014-2015 when its predecessor's popularity sadly faded and Big Hero 6 came into existence/got popular, I was annoyed by all the fanart, fanfiction, and fanvids featuring Vaniro (Vanellope romantically involved with Hiro from BH6), about the only thing keeping WIR in the public consciousness. One problem with most of that stuff was how the other Sugar Rush racers and Ralph were featured, if they were acknowledged at all. Now Disney makes an official sequel using the same apparent checklist as Vaniro shippers, but replace Hiro with a Mary Sue (and get a very overrated to voice her to boot).
Disney's official WiR website had individual profiles for them. Disney published spinoff storybooks featuring them. Come the actual movie sequel, they're reduced to generic brats except Vanellope who went Tumblr radfem. And for what? To put the Disney Princesses in jeggings and give an already overrated actress even more exposure she didn't need.
And their obvious replacements had no personality to speak of (not even that blatant Mary Sue played by the overrated Gal Gadot)
And they're still more interesting than those gangsters, including the one Vanellope fell in love with, in Slaughter House or whatever that Grand Theft Auto Online rip-off was.
All to make us cheer Vanellope's decision to go live in that Grand Theft Auto Ripoff and agree that that Mary Sue played by the overrated and over-worshipped GAL GADOT is "the friend Vanellope truly needs/deserves"
Sure, females shouldn't wear dresses but let's still put the big burly man in one just for a cheap laugh and/or shock value. *rolls eyes*
What the Hell were these filmmakers thinking?! Nevertheless, this movie is awful! And anyone who says is better than Incredibles 2 is a blithering idiot!
Where are the cries of how "transphobic" or "homophobic" or whatever this was among all the praises of how Vanellope and the Disney Princesses acted in this movie and how Gal Gadot was in it at all?
Also having no remorse over her role in destroying Sugar Rush
But people don't always like the same things, Ralph was smothering her, she was only ever bullied in Sugar Rush, distance doesn't destroy friendships, etc etc...
Just thought I'd beat the people sure to come in with whiny defensive comments to the punch.
Don't throw that "tastes change" [poo] at me! Why would anyone want so much to live in that horrid polluted crime scene which the only goal is that car with is not unique or cool in any way? Vanellope's taste only changed to push Gal Gadot and the horrid message of this movie.
"But she was bullied there, unlike SLAUGHTER RACE where SHANK worships and caters to her! " Did you even watch the first movie all the way through? Turbo brainwashed those kids, and they seemed sincerely sorry when their memories were restored! And I'm sorry, still no way a h3llhole like Slaughter Race is preferable to Sugar Rush, even with a character who literally only exists to kiss your own [backside].
Consider this: there's a choose-your-own-adventure storybook of this movie, written solely by Rich Moore. In said book, the Disney Princesses do not appear at all and neither does Slaughter Race in any way (not even Shank). And writer Phil Johnson also cowrote the first movie, which of course had good plot and good character development without the SJW pandering. The cold hard process of elimination places the blame for the mess of a film we got squarely on Ribon.
Adding insult to injury, SHE voiced Snow White in this movie. Yes, I know Snow White's original voice actress has been dead for twenty years, but someone besides her and besides Pamela Ribon has been voicing her in spinoff material, and Cinderella and Aurora had THEIR current regular voice actresses.
As said on the Worst SJWs list: She complained about a book where Barbie worked as a COMPUTER SCIENTIST because Barbie didn't act like a stuck-up (w)itch towards her male colleagues (worse, the publisher bowed to her and took the book out of print). Also, she co-wrote this flick with its Holy Israeli Lesbian Gang Leader, Princesses Gone Tumblrina Woke, and man bashing.
I know you're mad at Rich Moore for not putting Mario, but this bych is the one that made this movie into radfem propaganda.
Anyone wondering why that's important, that's who voiced her in the original.
Honestly I'm surprised she was the lone holdout from the original cast.
I didn’t mind the film but I hate when continuity doesn’t continue with voice actors. I was sad to see Mindy not back and also sad to see the girl currently voicing Snow White was cast aside.
Please, that's EXACTLY what they were doing with Slaughter Race and how we (and Ralph) are supposed to agree that it's the better home for Vanellope.
Grand Theft Auto is good but vanellope is an idiot for staying in slaughter race. wreck it ralph 3 likely not happening because of that stupid ass ending
Grand Theft Auto sucks.
You mean how they seem way more concerned about subverting tropes than anything else (like characterization and plot)?
Perfectly describes Slaughter Race, anyway
If Mario and Bowser from Mario Odyssey are out of character, why are the characters from this out of character?
Reminded me of the ending to Super Mario Mario Odyssey, and not in a good way.
All to make us love Shank Sue and sympathize with that selfish, entitled Tumblrina we're supposed to believe is Vanellope.
And he's only like that so this movie can push it's radfem lesbian agenda
Is that a misspelling or a knock at her "talent"? Either way, she's a mediocre actress at best but everyone acts like she cured cancer.
Not to mention the cult her character has developed. Even most bad reviews of the movie praise Shank.
Worse, she contributed to that awful "I wanna live in this violent apocalyptic wasteland" song, so now her fanbrats can add "she can really SING" to their list of reasons she's all but officially canonized as a saint.
And Mindy Kaling isn't, and Jane Lynch might as well not have been in it
Said it on the list about movie continuity errors and I'll say it again: +2
The end of the original showed Ralph and Vanellope actually now getting along much better with the other characters in their respective games, they were good enough friends with Felix and the blonde sergeant to serve as best man and maid of honor at their wedding, and Ralph seemed to be friends with the other "villain" characters. All that was ignored in the sequel.
Somehow three years disappeared, since Ralph said he'd be alone for 27 years before meeting Vanellope. But his game was celebrating its *30* year anniversary in the first movie.
Vanellope decided at the end of the original she'd rather be PRESIDENT than princess. This movie forgot or ignored that just so they could do the stupid "are you a princess" conversation that's mutated into something of a meme with the actual Disney Princesses, Vanellope could convince them to raid Fannie Flagg's wardrobe, and they'd more or less keep Vanellope on the path to her inexplicable "dream" of living in the stupid trash game.
Frankly, I wouldn't care if Sarah MCLACHLAN sang "A Place Called Slaughter Race" or whatever it's called. Still an awful song.
I would rather hear "Let It Go" on an endless loop for the rest of my life than to ever hear one note of "In This Place" ever again
Everyone who thinks A Place Called Slaughter Race is a good song doesn't know what good music is!
Even the pop cover of "In This Place" is terrible
Unfortunately, the previous Disney animated movie to do that, Zootopia, was a huge box office success, thus Disney saw fit to do it again.
Felix, Calhoun, the Sugar Rush kids, Sour Bill, Winchell and Dunkin, not to mention many other actual classic game characters (whether they'd made it into the first movie or not) were sacrificed for Yess, Shank, other "algorithms" whose names I don't care to remember, and other characters with uninspired "violent" names I don't care to remember?
Since that other comment was in the form of a question, the answer is "unfortunately, yes they were; no, it wasn't worth it".
I do not remember this at all guess it was so bad my brain erased it from my memory but apparently it did happen because I looked up the character that kissed him in question and I mean seriously, what the hell was the point of that scene!? - Mario8
You'd think the same SJWs gushing over the princesses' new outfits and attitudes and everything about Vanellope and her dream of living in a violent polluted dump with a perfect new wife would be crying about how homophobic this was.
I believe the temperature is actually "virtue signaling", but you're right about it making this movie awful.
*term is "virtue signaling" (stupid autocorrect)
Kids, making idiotic meme videos WON'T earn you thousands of dollars in less than a day. "Likes", "hearts", whatever do not turn into real money.
You all probably know better than I, and it goes without saying, but this movie... is HORRENDOUS! And you know what the most pathetic thing about this reason is? This guy doesn’t even take any criticism. He should never be allowed to eat lunch in this site again. He needs to go to jail. Phil Johnston should go to jail. Gal Gadot should go to jail. Everyone in the staff who made this movie should go to jail. Those are all of the things I said about this reason.
I hope this guy should go to jail.
This guy just ruined my life.
SJWs are idiots.
What fanfic author ghost wrote thus movie? Either Disney owes them residuals or they threw a lot of hush money at them.
You mean all of Slaughter Race, including that damn song?
Why did they include that? If it was so they. Ould shoehorn in the oft-repeated advice not to read comments, well, that's very hollow considering this movie's blatant disregard for another oft-repeated (and arguably more important) piece of advice regarding the Internet. Namely how you shouldn't trust strangers even if they do come off as extremely nice and offer you all you want and then some.
I know real YouTube comments are awful, but still
Youtube Rewind 2018: The Movie leaked footage.
So the crappy uninspired Grand Theft Auto Online ripoff gets "recalibrated" every six months or whatever. It's not just an opportunity for crazy selfish destructive see-you-next-Tuesday to pretend she wants to see Ralph again like the writers seem to think- it means SOMEONE'S ACTUALLY UPDATING THE Grand Theft Auto RIPOFF. And they'll more than likely delete that mysterious new bit of code nobody on their end remembers putting there.
And people making excuses for them, or saying "it's a kid's movie; you just overthink things"
Though at least they didn't shoehorn in anything about abortion.
What's really sad: this is practically "Ok Boomer": The Movie. Even though "ok boomer" wasn't a thing until almost a whole year after Disney inflicted this steaming pile on the world.
I don’t know what this is.
