It's been a long 6 years you guys, but Ralph Breaks The Internet is in theaters now! So break out your best selfie poses, filters, and hashtags because we are going to the internet! And just like a typical day on the net, we are going to get some major laughs and maybe even learn some life lessons along the way. I'm sharing it all (minus the spoilers of course) in my Ralph Breaks The Internet review!
Laughs and Life Lessons: Ralph Breaks The Internet Review
All The Laughs
If you thought the first Wreck-It Ralph was funny you haven't seen anything yet. The one-liners, internet puns, and jokes for both kids and adults were all perfectly timed. You can expect more of Ralph and Vanellope's adolescent humor, snarky remarks all the parents will immediately get, and lots and lots of well, you'll just have to watch and find out.
The Oh My Disney Princess scene is everything you could want and more than you would have ever thought to ask for. I WANT to say more about it but I won't. It would ruin the surprise. But you can read my interview with co-writer Pamela Ribon aka the genius behind the Princess scene and the voice of Snow White: 8 Fun Facts About The Disney Princess Scene

Life Lessons from Ralph Breaks The Internet
1. It's Okay To Be Honest
I'm starting with this one because it might be my favorite lesson of the film. It's okay to be honest, not only with your friends but also yourself.
Pamela Ribon said “I love that this movie talks about It’s okay to tell your friend that you’re in pain and not happy. We often go: I don’t want to bother her, I don’t want them to be upset with me, or I’ll wait, I’ll fix it. A relationship can’t grow if we don’t talk to each other when it’s hard.”
Vanellope is looking for more in her life while Ralph seems content to keep to the same routine. Once she admits it to herself, she finds it hard to tell Ralph how she feels, worried for him and their friendship.
It can be scary to tell our friends how we feel but in the end true friendship only grows stronger. If your friends can't accept you for who you are then they aren't really your friends.
2. Internet Safety
While this might be more of a cautionary tale to children, I think some of the adults needed some reminders. First of all being the internet isn't all unicorns and kittens, there is a lot of shady and scary things out there. Parental controls are your friend moms and dads!
Second, don't read the comments. Yesss warns Ralph about this and she is so right. Especially on video content, people can be super hurtful. I've had to learn to block, report, and move on. People can be the worst.
Third, don't use the internet unless you know some basics like how money works, that social networks aren't super private, and to stay far, far away from the dark web.
FYI this is not what staying away from the dark web looks like.
3. Be Your Own Kind Of Princess
There is no right or wrong way to be a Princess. Each Disney Princess has their own unique qualities and gifts that make them special. If Cinderella was like Rapunzel that would be boring.
We love the Princesses because they are different. Just like the world as a whole, if we were all the same life would be dull. It's our differences that make life awesome, when we choose to accept others and not fear or hate them.
4. Get Out Of Your Comfort Zone
Ralph is clearly out of his comfort zone. He's a retro arcade game character who finds himself in the vast and sometimes insane world wide web. That's pretty scary, for anyone. But once he embraces this new world he begins to loosen up and have some fun. Does this make for some misadventures? You bet! But they are hilarious so just go with it Ralph!
It might be safe inside your box but it can sure get boring, fast. It's okay to step outside and explore the world. It's an awesome place full of interesting places to see and people to meet.
5. Don't Judge A Book By Its Cover Or Game Interface
It's an age old saying, don't judge a book by its cover. Ralph, Vanellope, and all of us, learn that this still applies, even if your game play looks extremely wicked. Why did the shark eat the dog?!
Some people might seem angry or scary but are actually pleasant and nice. While others who you think are good people turn out to be the absolute worst. Next time you meet a new person (or game) keep an open mind, you never know, you might be meeting your new best friend.
