Things that Make Ralph Breaks the Internet a Terrible Movie

Mario8
I personally don't like the movie that much but I respect your opinion if you liked it.

The Top Ten

1 Rich Moore Lied About Including Mario in the Movie

Screw this movie and screw Rich Moore!

He is no longer a good person, period.

I can't they made a terrible sequel to a good movie, I'll say even The Lego Movie 2 did better than this!

This is the reason why I now hated Ralph Breaks the Internet.

2 Felix and Calhoun are Barely in the 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.

Though given how this movie's sole purpose is to undo *everything* about the original, this is probably for the best. They probably would have ended up divorced and Tammy (that's Calhoun's first name) would've gone selfish radfem lesbo just like Vanellope.

3 It Ruined the Ending of the Original Movie

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.

The first one is so bad, it’s great but this one is so bad, it’s bad.

4 The Sexism

Sad truth: Had Mario appeared, he would have gotten caught up in it.

All that shade thrown at men and the overall message that women are always right is still sexism

5 Vanellope Breaking Ralph's Necklace, Forgetting How She Felt When He Destroyed Her Car in the First Movie

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.

Oh my god! Vanellope is such a stupid b—ch.

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

Ralph broke the car because at the time he thought he was protecting Vanellope. Vanellope broke the cookie medal out of sheer petty selfish b**chiness.

6 It's Hypocritical

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.

Yeah.

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?

7 Ralph Going Turbo During Game Hours and Not Getting Called Out For It Unlike The First Movie

"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".

All he did was becoming a meme.

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.

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

8 Sonic is Far Too Prominent by Minor Character Standards

He’s more prominent than me. Enough said. - Mayor Gene

9 It Has No Real Villain

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.

Yeah. And besides, the first movie has King Candy in it. Would you have liked to see him come back in the sequel? Well, that’s what I’m hoping for. But, too bad, make way for this virus and this ugly monster. Yeah, these are the villains of this movie. Arthur and Double Dan. I have never heard of them before. Now, you have this huge stockpile of memorable villains from the previous Disney movies, video games, books, the T.V. shows, all that and they just go ahead and bring in two uninspired, stereotyped, mediocre villains?! I mean, come on! This is the best they could come up with? Are you kidding me? And you might say, “Well, King Candy can’t be in it because it takes place in the Internet.” Well, you know what? That’s my fudging point! This movie shouldn’t taken place in the Internet! Like, wow! That’s original, isn’t it? That’s never been done a million times already!

10 The Terrible Ending of the Film

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 don't "it's so heartwarming though" me, buster! Not interested in being reminded how "realistic" it is, either.

Honestly the ending of the movie bothers me. I really don't like how Vanellope wants to stay at Slaughter Race even though the game doesn't fit for her. I understand how Vanellope feels but seriously? This makes Toy Story 3 the movie with the best ending ever!

The Newcomers

? The Plot

The Contenders

11 It Says Joining a Violent Gang is a Good Thing

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".

12 Bowser Doesn't Make an Appearance

Rich Moore probably lies about including him in this movie. Same thing goes to Mario.

13 The "We Hope You Enjoy This" Message at the Beginning

When you resort to that, it proves a lack of confidence.

14 Everything About Slaughter Race

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.

Yes, including that damn song! Yes, including Vanellope's new best friend if not love interest.

15 Changing the Focus and Setting from Video Games to the Internet

Yeah! Wreck-it Ralph is meant to be about video games, not internet!

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

16 The Shameless Self Promotion Known as Oh My Disney

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.

17 Everything About the Disney Princesses

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.

18 It Teaches that It's Okay to Trust Strangers on the Internet Over Someone You Know in Person

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.

Worse, the cult of Shank condones and encourages this!

Such a great message... not!

19 The Feminism

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.

20 Mindy Kaling Did Not Voice Taffyta

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.

21 The Sugar Rush Kids Were Stripped of Their Individual Personalities

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.

22 Pamela Ribon Replaced Jennifer Lee on the Writing Staff

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.

23 Venellope is Selfish

She is also bratty and annoying. She kept getting on my nerves easily.

Everything she did in this movie, I just wanted to kill her!

And people say "I love how [she] grew in this movie" or that it's "wonderful character development". Gag me with a toilet plunger!

24 Vanellope Having No Qualms Abandoning Ralph and Her Game

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].

25 It Glorifies Games Like the Grand Theft Auto Franchise

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.

26 People like the idea of Vanellope and Shank being romantically involved

I'm sorry, but I saw a creepy obsession with Vanellope rather than the perfect relationship for her.

Mary Sues are hypocrites.

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

27 All Edge, No Substance

You mean how they seem way more concerned about subverting tropes than anything else (like characterization and plot)?

Perfectly describes Slaughter Race, anyway

28 They Put Ralph in a Dress After the Disney Princesses Were Convinced to Shun Dresses in Favor of Those Stupid Shirts

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?

29 Ralph's Characterisation

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

He’s a childish pushover in this movie. He’s also shown to be obese (kinda off-putting because this whole time I thought he was buff) and an annoying crybaby.

30 Gal Gabot Being In This Movie

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.

Such an overrated "actress"

31 Sarah Silverman Singing

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

32 Continuity Errors

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.

33 Fortnite references

I'm burning my Ralph plush toy and destroying my Ralph Disney Infinity figurine with a sledgehammer. Also, I will destroy my simpsons game, 2 seasons of the dvd and the movie with a hammer, burning the plush and comic and snapping the 2 different sized rulers in half. Fortnite ruined them both.

Ralph:"I'm doing the floss."
Me:"I'm never watching Wreck it Ralph ever again! "

Shame on you, Fortnite. You ruined some Fortnite haters' childhoods.

What moron decided to ruin my childhood like that?

34 Lame Pop Culture References
35 The New Characters

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".

36 Ralph Kissing Naveen

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.

37 The Social Justice Signaling

I believe the temperature is actually "virtue signaling", but you're right about it making this movie awful.

*term is "virtue signaling" (stupid autocorrect)

38 Its Reliance on Pop Culture References and Current Events

Unfortunately, the previous Disney animated movie to do that, Zootopia, was a huge box office success, thus Disney saw fit to do it again.

39 The Writing

What fanfic author ghost wrote thus movie? Either Disney owes them residuals or they threw a lot of hush money at them.

40 The Dark Scenes

You mean all of Slaughter Race, including that damn song?

41 It Encourages People to Make More Stupid Videos

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.

42 Rich Moore Becoming a SJW Sellout

SJWs are idiots.

Reminder that he co-directed "Zootopia"

It was this movie that made me despise this man so much because while he is not the only one responsible for this train wreck of a so called “film” he is one of the biggest reasons why this “ film” turned out the way it did along with the fact he LIED about including Mario in the “film” he WILL pay for that injustice someday one way or another and when that day comes I hope I will be able to see it myself. - Mario8

43 It Panders to Social Justice Warriors

Though at least they didn't shoehorn in anything about abortion.

44 The Buzztube Comments

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

45 Disney Making Fun of Itself Again

Come on, weren't "Frozen" and "Zootopia"- heck, "Enchanted"- enough?

46 The Plotholes

And people making excuses for them, or saying "it's a kid's movie; you just overthink things"

47 Zangief's Book Club

Just why?

I don’t know what this is.

48 It Was Written By SJWs and SJW Sellouts
49 The Brief Appearance of that Terrible Let It Go Song

The original was a classic, this one has officially turned Disney into a freakshow.

I just can’t believe this made Fack look like Lose Yourself and Stimulated look like Taste.

Screw this.
