Kids say (2 ):

RUNAWAY RALPH is a fun film that parents and kids alike will enjoy. Although the stop-motion animation looks pretty dated (and honestly a bit creepy since the animals almost look like taxidermy) and the mice are a bit hard to understand, the story is sweet and nicely captures the joys and awkwardness of adolescence. Both Ralph and Garf feel out of place, and their instant bond is heartwarming. And Ralph's adventures zipping around on his tiny motorcycle are silly and fun. It's not a very complicated story, but it nicely illustrates the sometimes odd friendships children form and how important they are.

Parents will love the clean, simple plot and the wholesome messages. And young kids will like the tame thrills of watching Ralph narrowly escape from Catso, zip under cars on his motorcycle, and sneak around the camp.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
