Wreck-It Ralph ★★½

I still can’t stomach much of what passes these days for voice acting, but this CG cartoon was more tolerable than most. The standard underdog-makes-good template is in full effect here, but at least this time out the pop-culture references are intrinsic to the plotting. This certainly isn’t going to be looked at as a classic in future years (those Q*Bert fans ain’t getting any younger), but there’s something to be said for having your head in the current cultural zeitgeist, I suppose. I appreciated that the Disney princess here instead chose to become President, although without any electoral process, isn’t she just a dictator?
